The refreshed 1 Series combines BMW's fun-to-drive RWD driving dynamics with that of a compact hatchback. The result is a small agile sporty hot hatch. While it retains the unmistakable 1-series design, the front and rear have been updated to give it a sportier more premium appearance. Inside is BMW's familiar driver-oriented dashboard.
Under the hood is a fuel efficient 134hp 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, it's mated to an 8-speed "Steptronic" automatic transmission.
