Hatchback Guide – BMW 1 Series

BMW 1 Series

BMW 1 Series

BMW’s baby Beemer is still one of the most impressive hatchbacks on the road and nine years since it was first launched it remains the only rear-wheel drive car in its class. This BMW is one for the single person or couple without kids, so if you have yearned for the BMW badge and renowned driving dynamics but with a reasonable price tag then this may just be the choice for you. New to the range for 2013 is the 114, the first petrol Efficient Dynamics model, but it would be hard to beat the diesel engines.

Starting Price: €25,460

Our Opinion: BMW’s smallest offering may be a little dull inside and out but it is one of the most engaging cars to drive. With the new fuel efficient engines, the 1 series offers a super blend of performance and economy.
