The BMW 1 series is the entry level model for the BMW series. It is thought to be a dying breed because it is a rear-wheel drive car that will soon go out of production because BMW will be employing the next 1 series with front wheel drive because it is cheaper and also it adds space to the rear passengers. For the ones who love the RWD 1 series hatchback, it still continues it for this year so buyers hurry. It is an entry level car with decent boot space and enough space for the passengers as well.
Externally, the BMW 1 Series has a longer body and looks typical BMW. Inside, the quality of the dashboard and the materials are of good quality and there is enough storage to keep the belongings too. It has a matt black finish on the interiors with chrome outlining finishing the design. It comes with the best-in-class i-Drive system which almost has no rivals today in the infotainment department. The BMW 1 series is the only hatchback in the segment with the RWD which gives it a nice sporty feel while driving it in the city or in some switchbacks.
This car also comes with adaptive dampers that help it change character from comfort to sporty when needed while the standard suspension does the job very well. There are multiple engine options to choose from including the most eco-friendly diesel. The 2.0 liter 20d which hits 0-62mph in 7 seconds and returns 65mpg as well. A great option is also the 225i petrol engine that is hot-hatch quick giving reasonable economy. There is manual and auto gearbox options and automatic makes it easier in the city and is a brilliant system.
