In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the BMW 1 Series. We will examine the details about the BMW 1 Series under three main categories such as The Features of the BMW 1 Series, The Fuel Consumption of the BMW 1 Series and Basic Characteristics of BMW 1 Series. These categories prepared for explaining the vehicle from any perspective. Before beginning the review, I would like to share some general information about the history of the BMW 1 Series. The 1 Series is a Subcompact Executive Hatchback car produced by German automaker BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke AG). The BMW 1 series has a history of three generations, and the last generation is called the F40. The new generation, which was first introduced to the public at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, was launched in the same year. The car is produced as a single-body type Hatchback and assembled at the Leipzig factory in Germany.
The Features of the BMW 1 Series
In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the BMW 1 Series. We can start with the exterior design of the BMW 1 Series. When we look at the exterior of the car in general, we can say that the new generation 1 Series has a much stronger design compared to previous generations. The 1 Series, which has a more compact and thinner design especially in the older generations, has a much wider and larger design with the new generation. Some details on the front seem to have changed. While BMW's iconic grille design was much more minimal in the previous generation, it has grown much larger with the F40 generation. Although some people criticize this design, it is said that BMW designers trust this design very much. We can say that there are some radical changes in the rear. Body lines have been made much harder and sharper. As a result, the taillights look much more aggressive and sportier. Now, we are moving on to the interior design of the BMW 1 Series. When we look at the interior design, we come across a classic BMW cabin. The cabin, created with a colour palette dominated by dark tones, looks very stylish. The materials used in the details in the cabin are of high quality. As always, there is a multimedia screen and air conditioning controls on the centre console. At the bottom, there is a minimal gear knob and general control mechanisms of the vehicle. The digital instrument panel in front of the driver offers practical use to the driver by providing active information flow.
The Fuel Consumption of the BMW 1 Series
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the BMW 1 Series. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That is why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. BMW 1 Series has got three standard engine varieties such as 1.16d, 1.18i and M135i. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is 1.16d. It has got a three cylindered engine structure with a 1496 cm3 size. It is using a Diesel feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Diesel type engine. It can produce 116 HP and 4000 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 1.16d has got a 4,0lt/100km (which refers to 71 MPG in the UK) mpg performance in Urban usage. However, this fuel consumption rate decreasing to 3,0lt/100km (which refers to 94 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as Highways or Long-Distance Trip. When we combine these mpg data, we get a 3,0lt/100km (which refers to 94 MPG in the UK) average mpg performance. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is M135i. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1998 cm3 size. It is a Petrol Type Engine which produces 306 Horsepower and 5000 RPM Torque. M135i has got an 8,0lt/100km (which refers to 35 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this MPG rate decreasing to 6,0lt/100km (which refers to 47 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel consumption data, we get a 6,0lt/100km (which refers to 47 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption data.
