2011 BMW 1 Series

The second generation of the BMW 1 Series has arrived, and it’s even more sporty, spacious, comfortable and fuel-efficient than before. All of its petrol and diesel engines now feature the new BMW Twinpower Turbo technology.

This very youthful five door and swept-back body car is still the only rear-wheel-drive model of its class. It possesses the unique combination of premium quality handling, designs and innovative technology. BMW 1 Series is the first in its segment to offer an 8-speed automatic transmission with Automatic Start/Stop function. It also offers a perfectly balanced weight distribution and advanced suspension technology significantly improving its road-handling capability.

The new BMW 1-Series comes bigger than the first generation; its body is 85mm longer, wheelbase 30mm longer, front track 51mm wider and rear track 72mm wider creating a more spacious interior and more dynamic look. Its luggage capacity increases from 330L to 360L and can be expanded to a maximum of 1,200L with rear seats folded down.

Inside the car is the high-quality interior with driver-friendly cockpit and outstanding materials and finishes; optional iDrive system with integral dashboard control display using the exclusive BMW flatscreen design.

For passenger safety; it has a high torsion-resistant body and comprehensive range of safety equipment including front, side and head airbags. Aside from these, the BMW ConnectedDrive technology offers a comprehensive selection of optional driver assistance systems and mobility services. These include High-beam assistance, Adaptive Headlights, parking assistance, reversing camera, Lane Departure Warning including Collision Warning, cruise control with brake function, speed-limit and no-passing information, Internet connectivity, increased smartphone and music player integration, real-time traffic information, and web radio, Facebook and Twitter apps.
