BMW 1 Series vehicle information
The BMW 1 Series has appeared in various guises over the years, including as a coupe and convertible, but is now only available as a five-door hatchback if you’re buying new. Together with its hatch boot and 60/40 split-folding rear seats, those back doors mean the 1 Series is as practical and versatile as it is stylish and elegant.
It also offers a high spec as standard, including BMW Live Cockpit Plus with navigation, automatic air conditioning and a leather multi-function steering wheel. There are lots of ways to personalise a 1 Series, so look out for features such as parking assistance, a panoramic glass sunroof and BMW’s Driving Assistant system when you buy used.
The 1 Series is available in a range of petrol and diesel options. The petrol engines are the 118i, 128ti and M135i xDrive models. These produce 136, 265 and 306hp respectively, covering 0-62mph in 8.9, 6.1 and 4.8 seconds. Exact performance figures depend on the trim you go for, with combined fuel economy sitting between 36 and 50mpg and CO2 emissions between 130 and 179g/km.
You can also choose between a range of trims within the line. The SE is the base model, rising to the Sport, M Sport and 128ti and M models. Whichever of these you go for, you get a sporty car with BMW’s signature dynamic styling and design.
Why choose a used BMW 1 Series?
When you buy a used BMW 1 Series, you’ll make a huge saving compared to buying new. Brand new cars lose between 15% and 35% of their value in the first year alone, rising to as much as 60% after three years. You’ll avoid this off-putting depreciation when you buy a used vehicle, which may still be in nearly-new condition.
The 1 Series is an excellent choice for a range of drivers looking for a luxury hatchback that offers a premium feel inside and out. The petrol version is ideal for shorter journeys, but the fuel economy stands up well to motorway driving.
As well as making a great family car, the 1 Series is also ideal for anyone who’s after those extra back doors and plenty of luggage space. Despite being roomy and versatile, it’s still nimble and fun to drive, which isn’t always the case with hatchbacks in this class.
