Prices for the BMW 1 Series hatchback are up incrementally across most of the range for 2022.

The only model to not receive a price increase is the Golf GTI-rivalling 128ti.

The price has slowly risen since the small four-door hatchback arrived here on Australian shores in third-generation F40 guise during 2019.

Prices now start from $47,900 before on-road costs for the base 118i and extend to $70,900 before on-road costs for the flagship M135i xDrive.

This is the first-generation of 1 Series to use a front-/all-wheel drive architecture, with all previous generations using a rear-wheel drive platform.

If you want a rear-wheel drive BMW you now have to step all the way up to the 3 Series – at least, until the 2 Series coupe arrives. The new 2 Series Gran Coupe shares the same front-/all-wheel drive platform as the 1 Series.

The 128ti joined the range in the first quarter of 2021 and competes against the likes of the Ford Focus ST, Renault Megane RS and Volkswagen Golf GTI.

To the end of August 2021, BMW has sold 1913 1 Series hatchbacks according to VFACTS, only outsold by the Mercedes-Benz A-Class (2891).

Pricing

  • 2022 BMW 118i: $47,900

  • 2022 BMW M135i xDrive Pure: $65,900
  • 2022 BMW M135i xDrive: $70,900

All prices exclude on-road costs

Engines

Unchanged for the 2022 model year, all 2022 BMW 1 Series hatchbacks are powered by turbocharged petrol engines.

118i models are powered by a 1.5-litre turbo three-cylinder producing 103kW of power and 220Nm of torque. This is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that powers the front wheels.

128ti models are powered by a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder producing 180kW and 380Nm. This is mated to an eight-speed ‘Steptronic Sport’ torque-converter automatic that powers the front wheels only.

BMW claims that the 128ti can sprint from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds.

M135i xDrive Pure and M135i xDrive models are powered by higher-output 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder producing 225kW and 450Nm. This is mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic and all-wheel drive.

BMW claims that these models do the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.8 seconds.
