BMW 320i M Sport: the sport made for the distracted


I auditioned with my eight-year-old son. Without the key, I tried to open the door of the BMW 320i M Sport. I just pointed out my cell. And it worked. Still without the key, with the cell phone close, I pressed the start button of the car. It also worked.

Like? The model is the first manufactured in Araquari, the Santa Catarina plant, to have the digital key. It works like this: the owner can create up to five virtual keys through the BMW Connected app and share them via iMessage also with up to five people, including on the Apple Watch.

The system has settings that allow you to restrict the maximum speed, engine power and maximum volume of the multimedia system for users with shared digital keys. That is, total control over dependents.

My eight-year-old son loved opening the door with his cell phone alone.

For the avoados

For this feature and more, which we will detail below, the 320i M Sport seems to be the car tailored for the distracted. For those dreamy and creative beings who don’t have time to waste looking for the key they forgot in some pants pocket hanging on a hanger.

Not even with commands on the panel. And not even with a fuel gauge.

The 320i is made for those who want to feel the rear-wheel drive, eight-speed automatic transmission, BMW TwinPower Turbo 2.0 liter engine (1,998 cm³), four cylinders in line, 184 horsepower between 5,000 and 6,500 rpm and torque of 300 Nm (compared to 270 Nm from the previous generation) from 1,350 to 4,000 rpm. No more and no less worries.
