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

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.

This 1.5-litre, three-cylinder with 138bhp is enough to get you from 0-62mph in 8.5sec. That's plenty, because it's also keen to rev and flexible enough from around 1500rpm. It's pretty quiet, too, although the stop-start system isn't very smooth and the automatic gearbox is a bit jerky in traffic, so the manual is best.
