It supplanted the BMW 3 Series Compact range as BMW's littlest and most moderate vehicle in the range (contingent upon the motor model) and brags various exceptional qualities for its class.
For example, the 1 Series is the main vehicle in its class highlighting back wheel drive, 50:50 weight adjust, a longitudinally-mounted motor and a propelled aluminum multi-interface suspension.
