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
The trimSee full equipment
The M135i comes with all the bits of an M Sport, such as LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, leather trim and 18in wheels, plus a racy bodykit. You also get an upgraded infotainment system with a 10.3in screen and digital dials as standard.
The engineSee full engine specs
This is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, with 302bhp and an eight-speed automatic gearbox, driving all four wheels. It takes 4.8sec to get from 0-62mph and has a broad spread of power, yet is perfectly civilised when you’re driving sensibly. And in outright terms, its acceleration is nearly identical to that of the Mercedes-AMG A35, if no match for more manic (and pricier) rivals, such as the A45 and Audi RS3.
