BMW 1 Series (F20)

BMW 1 Series body

5 Pros

  1. The BMW 1 Series is built in Germany (the more expensive BMW 3 series is built in South Africa)
  2. Youthful. BMW has never been old man and this is probably their freshest offering
  3. Back seat and boot are finally usable, but only just
  4. All 1 Series’ are fun to drive and the M135i is an absolute screamer
  5. Very well equipped (except for the base model)

5 Cons

  1. More expensive than other European offerings
  2. It look like Roger Federer crying
  3. Engine noise does not inspire excitement
  4. Poor rear visibility
  5. Australia is not going to receive the three door version

Concluding personality type: Adele: Substance over style

    • Yep good point – I would put it in the sportscar category at that range but def still a hot hatch. Entry model for the 1 series is about $40k which is in the lux hatch range

      I would vote the M135i as one of my favourites of 2012 – going to do a focused review on this version on this soon
