The second-generation BMW 1 Series was launched 10 years after the car's original debut, and there are some great discounts on the new models online. The speedy M135i caught our eye especially, with more £7000 off the five-door hatchback.

The six-cylinder turbocharged engine churns out 322bhp and can cover 0-62mph in 5.1sec in manual guise. It’s got real pace and is still comfortable to drive, even on the sporty suspension that comes with this M model, and the five-door model means still offers enough practicality to use as an everyday car.
The previous generation was amazing value for money, and with this discount the new model offers similarly impressive levels of bang for your buck.
A claimed fuel economy of 35.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 188g/km mean running costs will be high.
Should I add any options?
M models come with sporty bodywork, 18in wheels and Alcantara upholstery, along with aluminium trim. There are a lot of options available to add, like a reversing camera for £330 and an electric glass sunroof for £895.
