With fresh design and the latest in connectivity, the new 2020 BMW 1 Series is a proper BMW with a strong character all its own.
Customers can order their new BMW 1 Series with a choice of three- and four-cylinder engines from the latest-generation BMW EfficientDynamics family. A host of detail improvements give them better fuel economy, lower emissions and, in some cases, more power than before. Three diesel engines and two petrol units are available, developing from 116 hp (85 kW) in the BMW 116d to 306 hp (225 kW) in the BMW M135i xDrive. The new engine powering the latter model is the most powerful 4-cylinder unit in the BMW Group line-up. The BMW M135i xDrive dispatches 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a mere 4.8 seconds (4.7 seconds with M Performance package, available from 11/2019) on the way to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The BMW 116d, BMW 118d and BMW 118i come as standard with the further-developed 6-speed manual gearbox, while the state-of-the-art 7-speed dual-clutch Steptronic transmission can be specified as an option for the BMW 116d and BMW 118i. The 8-speed Steptronic transmission – available as an option for the BMW 118d and standard on the BMW 120d xDrive – and the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission of the BMW M135i xDrive boast further improved smoothness and acoustic properties. Intelligent connectivity allows both automatic transmissions to adapt their shift strategy to the route and traffic situation at hand.
