BMW 1 Series Hatchback: Review

Blue BMW 1 Series Hatchback Hippo Showroom

Looking for a sleekly styled and highly efficient car? You should definitely consider the BMW 1 Series Hatchback. With a superb range of engines, the 1 Series provides strong acceleration straight away, and overall excellent performance. The impressive drive remains sharp and sophisticated at all speeds, and there’s some fantastic equipment as standard.

When it comes to performance, the 1 Series offers a highly refined drive, and pulls smoothly and strongly when accelerating. The cabin is well insulated from wind and road noise, and the drive is comfortable and smooth, so it’s a relaxing drive whether you’re on a long road trip, or just nipping around the city. On top of this, there’s plenty of space throughout the interior and backseats, so any passengers in the back will have more than enough room to stretch back and relax.

As for design, the interior has been well thought out and built with high-quality materials, and you can tell that BMW’s usual high standard have definitely been met. However, it’s not just the plush and elegant interior that impresses. There are some amazing features and tech to play around with too, from parking sensors and variable assist steering, to climate control and Bluetooth. The most notable of all the tech has to be the recently updated iDrive system, which is easily one of the best features in the 1 Series. iDrive comes standard on all models, and allows you to control the major functions of the car with a central dial and few simply placed buttons.

The 1 Series also has an incredibly helpful and sleek touch-screen. It comes in two sizes: the standard 6.5 inches or the upgraded 8.8 inches. We recommend going for the bigger screen as it’s brighter, clearer, and much easier to read when navigating the roads.  Another fantastic feature of the BMW is the ‘Drive Performance Control’. This enables you to choose your perfect driving experience with four different modes, depending on your mood. The Sport and Sport+ modes will make the steering, throttle and suspension sharper, while the Eco Pro mode will help save you fuel, and displays fuel economy on the dashboard.

Overall the 1 Series is an excellent car, and is well worth the price. Whether you’re using it as a premium family hatchback, or luxury business car, the BMW has a style to suit everyone.
