BMW 1 Series 5-door Sports Hatch BMW 1 Series 5-door Sports Hatch


Thrill seeker.

Thanks to the impressive torque of its high-revving turbo engines, the BMW 1 Series 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 is exceptionally efficient too.

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.

BMW M140i 5-door Sports Hatch xDrive Badge

All-wheel drive in the BMW 1 Series.

Ideal for challenging driving situations – particularly in bad weather – the intelligent BMW all-wheel drive system xDrive* adapts perfectly to all conditions. Result: ideal traction and tracking stability provide even more driving dynamics and agility.

*xDrive available for the BMW 120d only

The intelligent BMW all-wheel drive system xDrive adapts to even the most challenging road conditions, ensuring optimal traction at all times. xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) ensure that the BMW remains safe and stable. Controlled via the DSC sensor system, xDrive quickly distributes power to where its needed most in order to prevent oversteer or understeer on bends. Moreover, it guarantees a rapid, safe acceleration on slippery or steep stretches. In critical road conditions, the DSC doesn't need to intervene as much. Thus, BMW xDrive combines all the advantages of an all-wheel drive system – traction, directional stability and driving safety – with classic BMW dynamism.

BMW M140i.

4.8 seconds. 155mph.

The BMW M140i is the currently the fastest model in the BMW 1 Series. Powered by a 3.0-litre M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine, it delivers impressive performance values. The engineers have modified and tuned it for interplay perfectly, from design and engine through to suspension. All together it leads to an acceleration from 0 to 62mph in just 4.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 155mph.

BMW 116d ED Plus.

Up to 800 miles nonstop.

When it comes to efficiency, the BMW 116d ED Plus is in a league of its own. This is thanks to a 1.5-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder diesel engine featuring CommonRail direct fuel injection and innovative turbocharger technology with variable turbine geometry. With a tank capacity of approx. 52 litres, it can travel up to just over 800 miles without refuelling.

BMW M140i 5-door Sports Hatch 8-speed Steptronic Sport Transmission

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.

In combination with Adaptive M suspension, SPORT mode offers sportier suspension tuning combined with a stiffer damper setting. It ensures a more spontaneous response from the drive system and steering, as well as unlimited driving fun.

The optimum choice for sporty driving at the limits and the best possible performance is the SPORT+ mode. This is because the minimised rev intervals between the gears enable acceleration with an especially high level of thrust. Furthermore, the DTC function (Dynamic Traction Control) comes into action, giving the drive wheels even better slip.

COMFORT mode allows smooth gear-shifting with a lower level of revs for relaxed and easy travelling. In combination with Adaptive M suspension, it ensures that any unevenness on the road remains practically unnoticed.

In ECO PRO mode, efficiency is increased by avoiding downshifts and the coasting function is activated, which allows the vehicle to roll along with especially low resistance by disengaging the engine. This reduces consumption considerably and significantly increases the range.

BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology

BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology.

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.
