1 Series 3 Door


Experience the highest class of driving pleasure with the new BMW 1 Series 3-Door Hatch. A classic is re-born thanks to its refreshed, sporty appearance and improved capabilities. Available in SE, Sport and M Sport trims, each equipped with next-generation TwinPower Turbo engines under the bonnet giving you real power. 

Expect a variety of high spec, exciting features as the standard, and a second to none driving experience – ensured by a comfortable and spacious interior. To complete the redesign, the 1 Series 3-Door Hatch is fitted with xDrive technologies, allowing it to adapt to the changing weather and road conditions. The updated 1 Series 3-Door model reacts in an impressive one-tenth of a second to adverse driving conditions, maintaining its stance in mud, gravel, rain and snow. 


Among the many redesigned and improved features, are a remodelled version of the iconic BMW kidney grill, an enlarged exhaust for optimum acceleration, and re-shaped front and rear bumpers – for a sportier finish. The instantly recognisable BMW tailgate has been updated to create a broader stance, while the two LED-lit lines run through the lights adding a subtle definition.

Featuring an alloy wheel design, which is specific to the 1 Series, each variation of the 1 Series 3-Door model is available in a choice of colours. The Liquid Blue exterior has been substituted for Platinum Silver, while the new Sparking Bronze paint finish replaces the Sparkling Brown; helping to introduce a touch of shimmer to the already striking 1 Series BMW range.


Take a seat inside the 1 Series 3-Door and you’ll immediately notice the new high gloss surfacing which offers a premium feel, plus, a new instrument display that has been improved to offer you road guidance; letting you know how many miles you will drive until your next service, and much more. The updated BMW 1 Series 3-Door is fitted with ConnectedDrive to cleverly connect you with other road users and is finished off with a refreshed interior trim and upholstery. 

For greater freedom of movement on every journey, for drivers and passengers alike, easy access is key; provided by improved entry and a more spacious footwell, plus a conveniently placed central cup holder. These are just a few small details that add to the overall difference between a 1 Series 3-Door and other cars in the same class.

All brand New BMWs come with a 3 Year Manufacturer Warranty and 3 Years' Emergency Service. Plus, 3 Years’ Service Cover is also available from just £299.

When the car was originally launched in first generation form it wasn't good looking, interior packaging was awful, the cabin quality wasn't all that it could have been and it wasn't actually that exciting to drive. The second generation model corrected many of these faults and this improved version finesses the package still further. While it's still not the most elegant looking hatch on the market, it's no longer conspicuously weird-looking. The cabin looks and feels so much more aligned to more expensive BMW models and the engine range delivers so much more choice. The Munich maker continues to offer a balance between performance and economy that almost seems to defy the basic laws of thermodynamics. This will sell in serious numbers.
