Design and equipment of the BMW 1 Series 3-door.

Dynamic outside. Exclusive inside. The exciting design stands for ultimate sporting flair, powerful dynamics and pure driving pleasure. With its progressive contours, athletic design language and high-quality equipment, the BMW 1 Series 3-door is the perfect match for an urban lifestyle.

Standard specification.

The BMW 1 Series 3-door Sports Hatch comes with an impressive standard specification. To find out exactly what is included in this model, download the detailed specification below.


The front radiates thrilling dynamics with every detail and a passionate temperament. The self-assured appearance with accentuated headlights, distinctive double kidney grille and large air inlets demonstrate powerful athleticism and an untamed forward thrust.


Underlining the sporting character is the progressive light design that is characterised by the flat front headlights. Available on request with full LED technology*, they emphasise the typical BMW face with four eyes and purposefully point towards the distinctive double kidney grille.

*Included as standard on the BMW M140i and M Sport model


The BMW 1 Series offers optimum road grip with its sporty 16-inch or 17-inch wheels as standard. The same applies to the optional light alloy wheels. The best example is provided by the exclusive 18” 719 M light alloy wheels in Jet Black with double-spoke styling and mixed tyres*, which are partnered by the M Sport brakes with Dark Blue brake callipers.

*Included as standard on the BMW M140i and M Sport model


The colour-contrasting rear diffuser insert in Dark Shadow metallic creates a particularly dynamic appearance and is part of the standard equipment in the BMW M140i Shadow Edition and BMW M140i M Sport Shadow Edition. Optimally coordinated with these features are the exhaust pipes in Black Chrome.


A perfect ending: athletically shaped wheel housings, a broad stance, distinctive bumpers with enlarged tailpipe trim strips and characteristic L-shaped LED rear lights are not only eye-catchers but also an expression of the inspiring dynamics.

M Sport Shadow Edition.

Pure motorsport flair is embodied in the M Sport Shadow Edition model. From suspension, via the wheels through to the design, numerous components have been given an even sportier look, in keeping with the philosophy of BMW M – including the M Aerodynamics package with accentuated front apron and side skirts, as well as rear apron with diffuser insert in Dark Shadow metallic and M designation on the side walls.
