The compact and agile BMW 1 Series is an exceptional car for those in search of low running costs, stylish appearance and a comfortable driving environment. Ideal for small families or business drivers, the 1 Series can meet a wide variety of motoring requirements. Choose from SE, Sport or M Sport models, all of which feature next-generation TwinPower Turbo engines and enhanced features as standard.
The exterior shaping of the BMW 1 Series provides a powerful and assertive presence, with the large BMW kidney grille ensuring you have a distinctive look wherever you travel. The flat look of the headlights helps to enhance your visibility at night and you can add LED technology as an option. The rear design is incredibly dynamic and sporty through the L-shaped rear lights and larger tailpipe finishers. Upgrading to the M Sport package will give you 17-inch alloy wheels as well as aerodynamic excellence from the bumpers and side skirts, highlighting the exceptional nature of the performance.
The inside of the BMW 1 Series has been crafted to place the driver at the heart of the car, with an ergonomically designed dashboard reducing the clutter and giving you easy access to the infotainment systems. Chrome accents and high-gloss black finishes on the standard BMW Radio Professional model ensure a touch of elegance, while the 360-litre boot space is incredibly large for a car in this class. Upgrading to the Sport specification means distinctive alloy wheels, a unique interior with Sports seats which offer enhanced comfort and support along with a whole host of model specific features.
BMW TwinPower Turbo engines offer exciting and thrilling performance on the road, with the entry level 116i petrol model getting you from 0-60mph in just over 8 seconds on its way to a very impressive top speed. With a combined fuel economy figure of 56.5mpg, the running costs will also be kept to a minimum, while opting for the diesel equivalent 116d engine will see this figure improved to a staggering 78.5mpg. If you want optimum performance, the M135i variant is fast, with a 0-60mph time of 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.
