BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch
The classy, racy BMW 1 Series delivers a great driving experience and an extremely comfortable ride in its upmarket cabin. This premium hatchback also comes with a fine range of engine options – choose the one that best suits your motoring needs and tastes.
Despite its sporty look – inside and out, the BMW 1 Series provides plenty of room for four adults, or a young family of five to travel in comfort. The car’s 360-litre luggage space is bigger than that offered by, say, the Mercedes A-Class, and a wide-opening tailgate makes access to the boot as simple as possible. What’s more, with rear seats folded, cargo capacity increases to 1,200 litres.
As well as a number of standard features such as a leather-clad three-spoke steering wheel and automatic air conditioning, the car includes a six-speaker sound system. This includes DAB radio, and all the audio inputs you would expect, including Bluetooth connectivity that enables music streaming and hands-free telephony. Also featured is a 6.5-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, ensuring that route planning is always an intuitive and process.
This striking-looking compact hatchback rides on 16-inch star-spoke design alloy wheels as standard and, of course, features the iconic BMW kidney grille, complete with smart black-finished vertical louvers. Other eye-catching fixtures include a matte-chrome exhaust pipe. The car is as practical as it is sporty, however. Families, for instance, will favour a five-door body, while three-door BMW 1 Series coupé models show off the vehicle’s good looks to full effect. All BMW 1 Series variants feature extremely effective lighting, such as front fog lamps whose beams penetrate even the thickest of mists.
The most efficient engine option available for the BMW 1 Series is a 1.5-litre 116bhp diesel unit. This returns as much as 83.1mpg and produces emissions as low as 89g/km – a great choice for budget-conscious households or businesses. Meanwhile, a 3.0-litre 306bhp petrol engine – which is not even the highest performer in the range, delivers 400Nm of torque. This BMW 135i M Sport unit also enables the vehicle to go from 0-60mph in roughly 5.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 155mph. Another BMW 1 Series M Sport engine is a great solution when a fine balance between performance and efficiency is required. This 1.5-litre 116bhp unit manages up to 70.60mpg and produce emissions from 106g/km, while delivering 270Nm of torque.
