While its looks won't win any design awards, the BMW 116d is probably one of the best choices for entering the world of luxury car ownership.

It's fun, handles like a true BMW should, and is still the only car in class to boast rear driven wheels. It also comes with a slightly clattering diesel engine, but once you climb inside you won't hear the noise and when you start driving it you'll be instantly amazed by the amount of go this car delivers and astonished by the fuel range it has.

What other car is so fun, desirable and economical at the same time? Also did we mention — it's not priced beyond reach (if you overlook that ALL cars are priced badly in Singapore) like most other German cars?
