In the ultra-competitive arena of the premium family car, the BMW 1 Series is right up there, but it's not the best (that's the Audi A3). It delivers a good blend of driver appeal with decent ride comfort and fine practicality, but its main strengths are a top-notch interior and a brilliant infotainment system.

Sport trim adds sports seats and exterior styling tweaks, including 17in wheels, as well as dual-zone climate control. We’d go to M Sport if you can, though.

It may offer 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 118d. All the 1 Series' diesels are RDE2 emissions compliant.
