In the ultra-competitive arena of the premium family car, the 1 Series is right up there, but it's not the best (that's the Audi A3).

Entry-level SE covers the basics, and makes sense if saving money is at the forefront of your mind. You get 16in alloy wheels, air conditioning, automatic lights/ wipers and cruise control, along with LED headlights and a good infotainment system, which includes an 8.8in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, Bluetooth and sat-nav.

The 116 has the lowest CO2 emissions and the best fuel economy in the lineup, but we think it’s still worth going for the more powerful and quicker 120d. All 1 Series diesels are RDE2 emissions compliant.
