The all new BMW 1 Series goes on sale in the UK in September. There will be a choice of three diesel and two petrol engines. It remains the only rear wheel car in its class and offers a sporty but fuel-efficient proposition boosted by BMW's EfficientDynamics technologies fitted as standard.
The new car is slightly longer and wider than its predecessor which provides increased interior space. Rear seat passengers benefit from a further 20mm of legroom. The interior has a fresh youthful combination of BMW design features and high quality materials have been used. There are large front door pockets, two cup holders on the centre console and a roomy glove compartment.
The exterior of the BMW 1 series also boasts a youthful appearance with a lively design dominated from the front by the large BMW kidney-shaped grille, boldly shaped headlamp units and three-section air intake. The grille is tilted forwards, further emphasising its sporty stance.
Prices for the new BMW 1 series start at £19,375 for a BMW 116i ES rising to £23,490 for the BMW 120d.
