BMW reveals new 1 Series

After a few leaked images surfaced online recently, BMW has officially released all the blurb and photographs covering its new 1 Series model. The face of the baby Bimmer definitely draws inspiration from the 5 Series GT, but we quite like the rear, which reminds us slightly of the Volkswagen Polo. A body, wheelbase and track slightly larger than the previous E88 model results in a more spacious interior (21 mm extra rear legroom and a luggage compartment increasing 330 to 360 litres). All models benefit from Start/Stop technology, while the new generation of petrol engines include a 136 hp 116i and 170 hp 118i model. Diesel lovers are given the choice of a 116 hp 116d, 143 hp 118d and a 184 hp 120d. Later on, a 116d EfficientDynamics Edition will be made available, with a CO2 output of just 99g/km.
