What Car? says...
The BMW 1 Series has been a staple contender among premium family hatchbacks for a while, appealing to anyone looking to mix practicality with a dose of glamour.
This latest, third-generation 1 Series has one big change that's upset a few enthusiasts – namely, it now has front-wheel drive rather than rear. In the real world, that's actually made it a far more accomplished family car.
Once you've picked your next new car, we can help you make sure you don't pay over the odds for it. Simply search for the best prices listed on our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It's a good place to find the latest BMW 1 Series deals.
