Sleek, sculpted, sporty and practical: the BMW 1 Series comes as a Sports Hatchback with 3 or 5 doors. Set the pulses racing and deliver pure driving pleasure.

Spirited elegance is the hallmark of the BMW 1 Series 3-door Sports Hatch and its sculpted design is an expression of its sporty heritage. Powerful engines provide sheer dynamism. Take your pick from petrol versions, ranging from the BMW 114i to the BMW M135i, or diesel engines, from the BMW 114d to the BMW 125d. Whichever you decide on, you will benefit from an unrivalled drivetrain in the compact class and thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics, a suite of technologies that reduce fuel consumption and emissions while boosting performance.

The BMW 1 Series 5-door Sports Hatch offers superior handling and agility for up to four passengers. The athletic lines and powerful contours are guaranteed to stand out, but as a 5-door model this is also a practical option. It is one of the few hatchbacks in the compact class to offer two rear seats and useful storage options in the centre, which can be replaced by a third seat if required. In addition, the 120d xDrive becomes the first BMW 1 Series in the UK to have xDrive, BMW's all-wheel-drive system.
