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.

M Sport adds 18in alloy wheels, more distinctive bumpers, stiffer M Sport suspension (which offers the best ride and handling balance), and a few more luxuries, such as power-folding door mirrors, heated front seats and leather trim. So if you are buying a 1 Series because for its premium or sportier flavour, M Sport makes the most sense.

The 120d is the most powerful diesel 1 Series you can buy and comes with an automatic gearbox as standard and is available with BMW’s four-wheel drive system (xDrive). It can hit 62mph from a standstill in a little as 7.0sec.
