The successor to the BMW 1 Series Coupé set its own visual accents in 2013 and emphasized the vehicle's sporty character even more clearly with its flared rear wheel arches, athletic rear end and striking silhouette with sloping roofline. Following the model update in 2017, new front and rear lights ensured an even more commanding appearance. The front headlights featured LED technology as standard.
Agile engines delivered dynamic propulsion across the range, whether with a three-cylinder gasoline engine with a displacement of 1.5 litres or the M models, whose CS variant produced a brawny 450 hp (331 kW). The chassis quickly showed that these compact vehicles also carried the BMW DNA, with precise, clearly defined steering that ensured control.
Inside, the driver was supported by a wide range of assistance systems, such as optional active cruise control, which reacts to the speed of the traffic in front of the vehicle. In addition, infotainment systems able to stream music from the leading online libraries promised pure entertainment while on the road.
