Since 2011, the fresh, modern design of the BMW 1 Series has been causing a stir on the streets. The LED headlights (available on the M Sport Models) of the new BMW 1 Series 5-door perfectly introduce the car’s refreshing new character. Both the front and rear bumpers have been re-shaped to express a sportier personality. For the first time, the new BMW 1 Series 5-door has taillights that are instantly recognisable as BMW. The classic L-shape, with a split two piece design brings it in line with every other series. Two new exterior colours bring a vibrancy and sportiness to its appearance - Platinum Silver and Sparkling Brown. Each model; Sport, Urban, M Sport and M Performance, features an alloy wheel design specific to that car. These ensure that each model has its own unique personality, and that the wheels are perfectly matched to the aesthetics of each exterior.Surfaces that were previously matt are now high gloss throughout, adding a premium feel to the interior wherever you look, with galvanised accents perfectly complementing this high-spec finish.
The new instrument display is greatly improved, with a high resolution 5.7-inch display that puts all the vehicle information you need right in front of you. You will be given visualisations of data including your current fuel consumption, how many miles until the car’s next service, as well as lane change guidance and essential speed limit information. The new BMW 1 Series 5-door features automatic climate control, Professional Radio and iDrive, all as standard, making every drive an intuitive experience that allows you to be informed, productive and relaxed. BMW ConnectedDrive is the intelligent linking of vehicle, driver and outside world. It makes sure you’re always connected. The new BMW 1 Series 5-door has BMW ConnectedDrive as standard, so you experience the benefit of: 4G capability for navigation, active cruise control, free automatic map updates, Park Assist (for both parallel and bay parking), Real Time Traffic Information, Drive Assist, Bluetooth and audio streaming. As well as these services, BMW Apps are also available as standard.
