BMW 1 Series

First released in 2004, the BMW 1 Series has a strong history with buyers wanting a small, but sporty hatchback capable of offering practicality and agility.

Available over the years with a mix of diesel and petrol engines, there was even a fire-breathing 1 Series M vehicle, which offered a turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine.

The 1 Series was available as a hatchback and briefly as a two-door coupe.

BMW's 1 Series competes with the Audi A3 and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Up until the current generation, the BMW 1 Series was always offered as a rear-wheel drive vehicle. The current generation (F40) is available both as front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
