Summary

BMW 1 Series may have made the switch to front wheel drive but the car has kept its appeal in terms of driving dynamics. The 1 Series also has increased space inside its higher-quality cabin as a result, and BMW offers a range of efficient yet punchy engines.

Sentiment Score[*] 52%
Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
There has never been a sporting front-wheel-drive BMW before. The 128ti is not pretending to be any kind of M car, because it really isn't, at least not in that rather brutal way most M cars have become these days. Despite appearances, it's actually quite subtle under the skin. The next few months will reveal where this car sits in the firmament.

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The BMW 1 Series is a massive seller for the German manufacturer. Now, in its third generation, the aim is to continue the 1 Series' success. Both of its previous iterations used a traditional rear-wheel drive layout. This has been abandoned in favour of a more space-efficient front- wheel drive set-up. Quality has taken a step in the right direction too; the interior is now on a par with the latest 3 Series.

autoexpress[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
Third-generation 1 Series has switched from rear to front-wheel drive. Firm ride aside, refinement is brilliant, too. Boot space is up 20 litres (the 380-litre volume is identical to an Audi A3 and 10 litres up on a Mercedes A-Class), and the opening is bigger. Getting into the back is easier than before thanks to a bigger opening, while both knee and headroom have increased by a couple of centimeters. Entry-level models get an 8.8-inch touchscreen and regular dials, but the fanciest is a pair of 10-inch displays.

  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
