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.

Our favourite 1 Series engine is a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder with 134bhp that’ll get you from 0-62mph in 8.9sec, and is punchy enough for day-to-day driving.
