Review

The BMW 1 Series is one of the best small family cars. It’s desirable, good to drive and surprisingly cheap to run

get the best price

Adds LED headlights, cruise control and rear parking sensors to SE. Only available with the entry-level 116d, though.

This turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine gives reasonable performance when revved hard and, driven carefully, it’s frugal. It sounds very hushed, but being a three-cylinder engine means you do get a fair amount of vibration through to the interior.
