Also it comes with an impressive wheelbase of about 2690mm, which makes it extremely spacious from inside.



Ed's Take: The 1 Series has good quality interiors however it is a bit too dull and boring styling. Other competitors are much more stylish and contemporary.

The interior cabin section is very plush, spacious that gives a pleasant and luxurious feel as soon as you enter inside the cabin. There are lots of silver ascents inside the cabin that helped the company obtain rich finishing inside. The company has given silver ascents on the AC vents, door trims, central console and on the steering wheel.

With such a spacious cabin, this premium hatch can provide luxurious seating for at least five passengers.


Acceleration & Pick-Up

Ed's Take: The acceleration produced by the 1 Series is sufficient to drive and overtake in city or the highway. The eight speed transmission means higher top speed.

The upcoming new hatchback will be made available with a 1.6-litre petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel engine options. Both these engines produce commanding power and torque that leads towards greater acceleration and perkier pickup. The petrol engine is learned to have the ability to reach a top speed of about 195kmph while breaking the 100kmph mark in just about 11.2 seconds. On the other hand, its 2.0-litre diesel engine is expected to breach the 100kmph speed mark in just about 8.9 seconds and can achieve a top speed of about 210kmph. This will surely excite every car enthusiast and lead them towards the showroom towards buying this hatch.

Engine and Performance

Ed's Take: BMW has always had Efficient Dynamics, and the 1 Series isn’t any different. The BMW 1 Series diesel is definitely the pick of the mill.

This upcoming model is one of the most powerful hatchback models available in its segment. It is believed that the company will introduce it with a 1.6-litre petrol along with a 2.0-litre diesel. Its diesel engine has the capacity to produce more power and more mileage in comparison to the petrol engine. Coming to the technical specifications, its 1.6-litre petrol mill has the displacing capacity of about 1598cc. This engine is integrated with 4 cylinders and two turbo chargers that generate a power of about 136bhp at 4400rpm and yield 220Nm of torque output at 1350rpm to 4400rpm. The petrol version fitted with this 1.6-litre twin turbo engine has the ability to achieve 190kmph of maximum speed, while breaking 100kmph speed in just about 11.2 seconds. On the other hand, its diesel version is blessed with a 2.0-litre 4 cylinder power plant that can produce 1995cc of displacing capacity.

The company has skillfully equipped both these engines with eight speed automatic transmission gearbox.


Ed's Take: The fuel efficiency of the diesel 1 Series is good, it increases with the new eight-speed transmission and other features like ECO PRO and regenerative braking.

According to the official leaflet of this model released by the company, the petrol version equipped with a 1.6-litre twin-turbo engine has the ability to return 16.28kmpl of mileage. Considering the engine size and its power, mileage of 16.28kmpl is something more than what you can expect. On the other hand, the company claims that the diesel version equipped with a 2.0-litre mill has the ability to produce 20.58kmpl of class leading mileage. Thus, this new hatchback from the German auto giant comes with the perfect combination of power and fuel efficiency.

Power of BMW 1 Series

Ed's Take: The power produced by the 1 Series diesel is more than the petrol. The power might sound less, but for a hatchback and a eight speed transmission its more than sufficient.

This yet to be introduced model is undoubtedly the most powerful hatches available in its segment. It has the ability to produce a power like a sports utility vehicle, which eventually provides exhilarating driving experience to the driver. Its petrol variant equipped with 1.6-litre twin-turbo petrol mill has the ability to unleash 136bhp of maximum power at 4400rpm, while yielding 220Nm of peak torque output in between 1350rpm to 4400rpm.

These disc brakes will help improve stress-free driving experience while improving the braking efficiency on roads. Furthermore, the functionality of these disc brakes are enhanced by sophisticated technologies like Anti-lock Braking System, Cornering Brake Control, Dynamic Traction control, hill start assistance, brake drying and brake standby. On the other hand, the handling aspects are improved by its robust suspension system. This hatchback comes with Adaptive M Suspension system that allows the sports tuning of this hatch without compromising on its comforts.

Inside this hatchback the company has incorporated a power steering system that responds immediately and precisely. This will further enhance the handling while offering superior drive dynamics. On the other hand, the model comes with top end safety aspects that assure the safety of both passengers and the car as well.
