The BMW 1 Series is an outstanding sports hatch, featuring striking good looks, a range of powerful and efficient engines, and innovative technology to ensure pure driving pleasure. Ideally suited to the Motability Scheme, it is available in three and five-door body styles, with a selection of adaptations available so that the car can be tailored to your particular driving requirements. The Motability Scheme provides a wide range of modifications which can be made to your Motability vehicle based on your personal circumstances. Depending on your needs, we are able to make a variety of Motability adaptations and conversions to help make your car more accessible and practical.
Sculpted lines, redesigned headlights, a longer and slimmer tailgate, and the iconic BMW kidney grille all help the BMW 1 Series to stand apart. New-look bumpers feature at the front and rear, along with attractive high-gloss black and chrome detailing. The five-door model offers added flexibility for drivers leasing through the Motability Scheme who require additional versatility.
The cabin has an undeniably premium feel, thanks to the use of high-quality materials throughout, while a more roomy interior means a comfortable ride for you and your passengers. An increase in the size of the boot to 360 litres ensures this sports hatch is also a practical option. Lower the rear seats to enjoy 1,200 litres of interior storage space, meaning plenty of room for mobility aids, including a wheelchair if required. There's a wide range of trim and upholstery options available too, allowing you to customise the interior of the car to suit your style.
BMW's range of TwinPower Turbo petrol and diesel engines all offer a dynamic driving experience while keeping emissions and fuel consumption to a minimum. Options include the 1.5-litre 116d ED, an incredibly efficient powertrain offering 83.1mpg combined and CO2 emissions of just 89g/km. The BMW 1 Series provides comfortable suspension and handling along with a ride height which means getting in and out should not be as challenging as some vehicles which sit very low to the ground.
Cutting-edge active and passive safety features lie at the heart of all BMW models. High-strength materials are used to create a strong passenger cell in the 1 Series, while front and side airbags also help to minimise injuries in the event of an accident. Tyre pressure monitoring and Dynamic Stability Control come as standard, while additional technologies such as adaptive LED headlights are also available.
