Driving dynamics and efficiency of the BMW 1 Series 3-door.

Thanks to the impressive torque of its high-revving turbo engines, the BMW 1 Series 3-door delivers spirited and agile driving moments. It does so above all in combination with Servotronic and the optional Adaptive M suspension. Whether travelling in the city, across country or on the motorway, the BMW 1 Series 3-door is exceptionally efficient too.


Conquers the road in no time at all. The BMW 1 Series 3-door inspires with its powerful engines, optionally with all-wheel drive and near-perfect 50:50 axle load distribution – for precise handling and exciting performance. 


A host of optional components unleash exciting dynamics and sporting agility: Adaptive M suspension, 8-speed Steptronic transmission, Variable Sport Steering and a Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine (on the BMW M140i) – unique in this class of vehicle – deliver driving pleasure at the highest level.

The heart of every BMW 1 Series is the engine, and the current range of engines offer a suitable drive system for any requirement. This is because all petrol and diesel engines in the BMW EfficientDynamics engine family – regardless of whether they have 3, 4 or 6 cylinders – impress with their spirited performance thanks to innovative BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, even in the low rev range. At the same time, they display increased efficiency and even more driving dynamics.

8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.

The optional 8-speed Steptronic transmission allows an especially high level of gear-changing and driving comfort thanks to the narrow spread of gear ratios and minimised rev intervals. This combines maximum comfort with the sensation of impressive dynamics and low fuel consumption.

Less fuel consumption, more driving pleasure: BMW EfficientDynamics is the strategy to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while at the same time increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. The approach covers the drive system, energy management and vehicle concept itself.
