##BMW 3 saloon--left##WITH the 2002 CO2-based BIK tax regime expected to pave the way for a resurgence in the popularity of diesel, and new emissions-based Vehicle Excise Duty already with us, you might expect BMW to be at the top of the learning curve with regard to a tax-friendly product. And true to form, it is. The 320d's 2-litre direct injection turbodiesel develops 136bhp and returns 49.6mpg on the combined cycle, making it one of the most efficient units on the market. Available in both four-door saloon and five-door Touring estate guises, the 320d starts at £20,570 on the road for the standard saloon, and rises to £22,660 for the 320d SE Touring. Tested here is the 320d SE saloon, at £21,800 on the road.

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
