Review

In the ultra-competitive arena of the premium family car, the BMW 1 Series is the best of the lot. It delivers a fantastic blend of driver appeal and ride comfort, along with decent practicality, a top-notch interior and a brilliant infotainment system.

Trim: Sport

Sport trim adds sports seats and exterior styling tweaks, including 17in wheels, as well as dual-zone climate control.

Engine: 118d

The 118d is expected to be the big seller and we can see why if you're a high-mileage driver. Okay, an A200d is quicker but not by much, and the 118d feels punchy and impressive in town or on motorways. And it's also quieter than an A200d, with a very silky stop-start system. It works better with the automatic gearbox than the 118i, too, and will do a real-world 50-plus MPG.
