Which used BMW 1 Series hatchback should I buy?

Part of the 1 Series’ appeal is its wide range of engines. These start with a compelling 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine borrowed from the BMW Mini, which gives the 118i smooth and sprightly performance and reasonable economy, peaking at 56.5mpg. Of the diesels, the 116d is superlative in its economy, with the SE trimmed-version hitting 78.5mpg. 

Trims on offer start at base-level SE, which gets the essentials but lacks niceties such as parking sensors and sat-nav. Sport enhances the appearance somewhat, with larger alloy wheels and sports seats, while M Sport offers larger alloys again, the option of a firmer and lowered suspension, climate control and an aerodynamic bodykit. 

Our favourite BMW 1 Series: 116d SE 5dr
