Looking the part both inside and out, the 1 Series is BMW’s successful attempt at throwing a cat amongst the pigeons when it comes to its peers.
As it’s the only car in its class which is rear-wheel drive, the 1 Series benefits from having supreme road-holding abilities, while BMW’s superior build quality is another big draw. Even the base model has a host of trim pieces and features that are only usually found on top-of-the-range models.
There are both three and five door versions of the 1 Series too, while you also have the option of choosing an economical or sporty model – whichever best suits your needs. Whatever you go for, expect to pay in the region of £10,000 to £17,000 on the used market.
The 1 Series has smart looks and mod cons to match – even the base model is packed with features. It’s also well-made and is enjoyable to drive, so it’s far from a one-trick pony.
Although it lines up against the likes of the VW Golf, the Audi A3 and the Mercedes A-Class, the range is slightly pricier than most of its competitors. You’re getting your money’s worth, though. Especially when it’s spent on the M135i 1 Series, which is capable of hitting 0-62 in five seconds; an astounding time, especially for a hatchback. Although, there are more economical models too, if that’s what you’re looking for.
