Poor credit Car Finance required ? BMW Announces Price of ActiveHybrid 3
The hybrid BMW 3-series will only be launched next month, so BMW will waste no time announcing the prices of the new option to get that order book filling up with some serious company car drivers! With 4 trims now available with two newcomers we will face the choice of– SE, Modren, Luxury and the old favorite the M Sport – the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 will set you back £40,225 on-the-road and while this kind of price level proberley won’t appeal to MSG Cars non prime customers a used example sure will. This price seems a bit steep to us a MSG towers and I’m sure anyone reading this will be with us on this. Going green is one thing but paying an extra £15,000 doesn’t quite seem right does it? Expect poor sales and the model to die a painful death before the bean counters realise this but lets have a look at what you get.

Our Poor credit car finance options allow you to still select the exact make and model and spread the repayments over 2 to 5 years time.
Just like the BMW Activehybrid 5, the ActiveHybrid 3 comes powered with the same 3.0-liter TwinPower six-cylinder engine coupled with a 55bhp electric motor, achieving a peak output of 340bhp and 332lbft of torque. The ActiveHybrid 3 manages to sprint from 0-62mph in just 5.3 seconds, sbout 0.6 seconds faster than the 5-series. It also emits 10g/km less CO2 than the bigger 5-series, with its emissions standing at 139g/km.
On electric power, BMW claims that the hybrid powered 3-series can travel up to 2.4 miles. Coupled with the engine, the car returns 47.9mpg.
This coming July, BMW is also looking to launch the four-wheel drive BMW 3-Series xDrive, a new chassis configuration which will come with the 320i, with the SE trim costing £27,000. With the manual gearbox, the car can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 7.4 seconds.
Not blisteringly fast but when you consider that the car only consumes 41.5mpg and emits 159g/km of CO2, the xDrive 3-series isn’t too shabby. If you opt for the optional 8-speed automatic gearbox, the fuel economy is improved by 2mpg and CO2 emissions is dropped by 7g/km. If these figures aren’t good enough for you, BMW will launch diesel variants over the next few months which should definitely have better fuel economy and emissions.
There will also be more changes made with the range of 3-series cars, which include an eight-speed automatic gearbox fitted to the 330d and also an M Sport model. 18-inch M-star spoke wheels, M Sport suspension as well as body styling and interior trim are offered as standard features. The M Sport trim is also offered at a premium price, £3000 more than the SE trim.
The BMW 5-series GT will also be available with a 520d model, powered by the same BMW 5-series saloon and Touring 2.0-liter diesel engine. BMW claims that the engine can return 53.3mpg and emits only 139g/km. Stop-start will be offered as standard equipment in the GT range.
