BMW expands 1 Series range
BMW 1 Series gets three new engines and M Sport trim level
The BMW 1 Series range has been expanded with the introduction of an M-Sport package and three new engines.
One petrol and two diesel units make up the new arrivals, and the most notable addition is the 116d that returns 74.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 99g/km. With 116bhp on offer from the 1.6-litre diesel engine, the 1 Series can also accelerate from 0-62mph in 10.5 seconds.
The other diesel – the 125d – gets a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine producing 218bhp. As well as a 0-62mph time of 6.5 seconds, the 125d is surprisingly efficient, with an economy figure of 58.9mpg.
Elsewhere, the 125i is the sole petrol arrival, which produces 218bhp from its 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A 0-62mph time of 6.4 seconds makes it the fastest 1 Series in the range.
The M Sport package arrives as the flagship trim level. It includes sports suspension lowered by 10mm, a bodykit and M Sport alloys. Inside, BMW has fitted an M badged steering wheel, doorsills and gearlever.
