New BMW 1 Series design, New BMW TwinPower turbo engines

New BMW 1 Series design, New BMW TwinPower turbo engines, New BMW 1 Series revealedHatchback BMW gets onboard internet access ; BMW has revealed the next generation of its 1 Series premium compact hatchback. The new BMW 1 Series offers more space, new engines and an eight-speed gearbox option. Plus, there's an EfficientDynamics version that promises to emit just 99g/km of CO2.

BMW describes the looks of the new 1 Series as ‘bold’ and ‘swept-back’, with ‘elegant proportions’.
 You can be the judge of that – but suffice to say it won’t be too difficult to spot the difference between old and new versions of the car, even though it manages to keep a strong family resemblance.

The new BMW 1 Series has been given a new look - but it's still similar to the current car

The five-door hatchback variant takes the lead at launch, as it did with the original car. It's 85mm longer (with a 30mm increase in wheelbase) and 17mm wider, but no taller; rear legroom is increased by 21mm and boot space is expanded from 330 litres to 360 litres. Three-door, coupé and convertible versions will follow in due course.

The new 1 Series retains its front-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout – unique in the compact hatchback sector – which should ensure a fine handling balance and plenty of driver appeal.

BMW says the new 1 Series will be more fuel-efficient than ever before Powering the 1 Series is a new range of 1.6-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines.

All of them feature BMW ‘TwinPower’ turbo technology – compact twin scroll turbochargers that boost performance and economy by effectively acting like two turbochargers in one.

Petrol choices are new generation engines, badged 116i and 118i and offering 134bhp and 167bhp respectively. Those are increases of 9 and 19bhp over the previous equivalents, and they come alongside fuel economy improvements of up to 10%.

The diesels are significantly revised versions of the previous 2.0-litre unit, with variable vane turbocharging and common-rail injection. A 114bhp 116d, 141bhp 118d and 181bhp 120d are all offered, each more economical than before.

Eco optimisation

Further extending the eco credentials of the new 1 Series, it becomes the first compact car to be offered with an eight-speed gearbox.

This is the eight-speed automatic that’s already in use in a number of larger premium cars across several brands, and is quite a notable addition to the optional extras list.

Beyond this, all versions of the new BMW will come with start-stop technology as standard – including the automatics. There is also a new ‘Eco Pro’ driving mode for maximum environmental savings, which is part of a standard-fit ‘driver experience switch’ that also offers Comfort and Sport settings.

Further down the line, BMW is also planning a 116d EfficientDynamics edition – with the same 114bhp power output, but CO2 emissions of 99g/km and 74.3mpg combined over the standard EU testing cycle. This matches the latest Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion, despite the reduced efficiency of rear-wheel drive.

The 116d EfficientDynamics will be the most efficient BMW ever – at least until the i-badged BMW electric models start to arrive on dealer forecourts.
