      So I’m going to be buying a BMW 1 Series 116d which has 116bhp and 191 lb/ft of torque.

      Is 116bhp a good amount of horsepower?

      Hi Connor. It very much depends on your needs.

      The 116d is the entry-level diesel engine in the BMW 1 Series range, but it is probably perfectly adequate for one or two people pottering around in local traffic.

      For regular motorway driving, or if you are taking four people and/or a lot of luggage, it will feel quite sluggish under acceleration but will still cruise quite happily once you’re up to speed.
