Newer articles featuring 2012 BMW 1 Series

2012-09-21: First drive: BMW 1 Series three-cylinder prototype
2012-05-16: BMW 135is run-out models for US
2012-05-15: BMW 1 Series line-up additions

The engine line-up for the recently launched, second generation, BMW 1 Series five-door hatch is to be completed in March with the introduction of three new powertrains that will be joined by the M Sport specification.

The 116hp, four-cylinder, 1.6-litre TwinPower Turbo diesel engine that powers the £20,885 116d EfficientDynamics model is the first of two diesel units and offers 0-62mph acceleration of 10.5 seconds and returns 74.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 99g/km. This means that it qualifies for the lowest BIK rate of 13 per cent, zero Vehicle Excise Duty and is exempt from London's Congestion Charge.

Based on SE specification, the BMW 116d EfficientDynamics comes with 16-inch alloys, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, front fog lights, multifunction leather steering wheel and BMW Professional Radio with freestanding 6.5-inch display and iDrive controller.

The second new diesel engine is a 218hp 2.0-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo unit that powers the 125d. With 450Nm of torque at its disposal the 125d takes just 6.5 seconds to reach 62mph from standstill yet offers 57.6mpg and 129g/km CO2 on the combined cycle. The petrol powered 125i has the same horsepower and 0-62mph time but only manages 44.1mpg and 152g/km CO2.

The M Sport package will also arrive in March as the top trim level for the five-door 1 Series. It includes 18-inch M Sport alloys, a body kit, sports suspension that lowers the car by 10mm and M Sport badged steering wheel, gearlever and doorsills.

While the 1 Series hatch receives M Sport treatment the outgoing Coupé and Convertible models go even further with new Exclusive and Sport Plus Edition trim levels. Priced at £500 over the cost of the standard SE and M Sport Coupé and Convertible models the new special editions offer enhanced standard equipment, alloy wheels and unique upholstery.

In the final piece of 1 Series news the 120d hatch joins the 320d and 520d EfficientDynamics saloons and both 520d and 530d saloon and touring models on the list of BMW models available with optional BluePerformance technology. The £995 addition provides a storage catalytic converter that reduces nitrogen oxide emissions to stricter EU6 standards that are due to come into place in September 2014.
