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

This has standard LED headlights, climate control, 18in alloy wheels, lowered, firmer suspension and an aerodynamic bodykit that is designed to make the car look meaner. It’s a lot of money, though, and doesn’t ride as well as versions on smaller wheels with fatter tyres. You can deselect the firmer suspension at no extra cost – something we’d recommend if you go for this trim.



Another step up in price, the 120d is a more natural rival for cars such as the Mercedes A220 CDI and Audi A3 2.0 TDI. It produces an impressive 187bhp and is seriously quick in-gear and on the motorway, yet returns well over 60mpg officially. Also available with an effective four-wheel drive system.
