About BMW 1 Series


BMW is a brand speaking of which brings about a sense of luxury. The all new version of 1 Series has come up with the improvements that were yet to be seen in the older version. Back in the years, it was nearly a dream on Indian roads to see a luxurious German hatchback. But with the launch of this model in the country, this dream has become a reality. The car that is sized 4.2 metres long has a wheelbase of around 2.6 metres. The car has a similar design like the older one, and no changes have been made in terms of the grille design. While across the world one has the option to choose between the three and the five-door car, in India we get the option just for the latter.

Further to this, read BMW 1 Series Road Test details by our expert.


Talking about the exteriors of the car, not many changes can be seen if compared to the older version. The grille design is almost the same. The five-door car also has a pronounced hump on its hood that tends to reach up to the windscreen and the A-pillars. While the shape of the car is pretty much like the 3 Series, there is a decrease in the size of tail lights but the Bavarian manufacturer's design persists.


The car’s interior isn’t very modern. It is pure black with a very basic outlook. Talking about space, there's a lot of room in the front of the 1-series while a person uncommonly tall will feel confined in the external back seats.On the other hand, it's best to think about the 1-series as a four-seater. The focal back seat is restricted, and anybody sitting on it needs to straddle a cumbersome, raised segment of the floor. Getting into the back in any case isn't especially simple for grown-ups, either, because of little back door openings on the five-door rendition of the 1-series and a clumsy move to the back of three-door models. Simple and clean instrumentationis a BMW trademark and the 1-series epitomizes this with straightforward, simple taper use-dials before the driver. You additionally work most capacities by looking through consistent onscreen menus utilizing a rotating dial that is situated simply behind the gearstick, where it iseasy to reach. Furthermore, the presentation screen is high on the dash so you can simply keep a large portion of an eye out and about while utilizing it.

Engine and Transmission

The India spec 1 Series is being offered with one petrol and one diesel motor. The previous is a four chamber turbocharged 1.6-liter motor that creates 138PS and 220Nm of torque while the diesel again is a 2.0-liter motor that delivers 145PS and 320Nm of torque. Both motors have been mated to the ZF eight-pace gearbox that sends energy to the back wheels, giving the 1 Series a fitting sum hot hatchback believability. This isadvancedconsiderably when we consider the way the auto has a longitudinally mounted motor and flawless weight appropriation. BMW is putting forth the 1 Series in four variations; 116i (petrol), 118d, 118d Sports Line and 118d Sports Plus.

Performance and Handling

Equipped with twin turbochargers the company makes sure that you have power when you need it. The lead M135i tends to offer genuine performance, with a sixchamber motor and more than 300bhp, and like the speediest BMW cars, its top rate is restricted to 155mph.The steering is speed-touchy, so it's at low speeds for simpler stopping, however, weights up when driving rapidly to help the 1 Series feel steady and composed, which gives you a lot of certainty for handling quick corners.

Braking System

The car comes with the BMW Braking Performance System, which gives the driver a considerableamount of control over the speeding car. It comes with six-piston aluminium fixed callipers and cross-drilled discs which are light weight.


The 1995 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 14 kmpl in city and 12 kmpl on highways.

Safety Features

The BMW 1 Series grabbed a five-star rating in the Euro NCAP accident tests, and was positioned among the best in its class for accident insurance, with a grown-up tenant rating of 91 percent and a kid inhabitant rating of 83 percent. You get a heap of security innovation fitted as standard, including a footing control, four airbags, ISOFIX tyre seat mounts, non-freezing stopping devices and electronic dependability control. What's more, you can pick from various security-related additional, discretionary items, for example, path takeoff cautioning and programmed braking, which has the capacity to recognize stationary activity before you and naturally brake to keep a low-speed crash.


If you need a reduced and truly lively hatchback that consolidates solid execution with light-footed back wheel-drive taken care of, one and only auto will figure on your shopping rundown: the BMW 1 Series. The BMW 1 Series has earned the full five stars in the NCAP accident tests and gloats an especially great grown-up inhabitant assurance rating of 91%. Early-life unwavering quality is great, however as the miles mount up, it has a notoriety for giving inconvenience.


The Series-1 BMW competes with the A-Class and the B-Class. Versus, the 118d variation is practically Rs 40,000 less expensive than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class A180 CDI variation. However, the last has a couple of more goodies like GPS, sound controls in the back armrest, driver armrest, and cowhide seats. For the purchasers who shop in that value section, such elements do make a difference and is prone to tip the scales for the A-Class. Then again, the most noted component that ought to put the 1 Series back in the diversion is that it is RWD when contrasted with the A-Class which is front wheel drive and this ought to make it livelier to drive.
