Description

Until the 1 series arrived, the smallest BMW (excluding the Z4 roadster) was the 3 series sedan. The 1 series’ base price was about $7,500 less than a comparable 3 series coupe. The 1’s compact footprint also gave it a sportier ‘feel’ even though it weighed only about 100 pounds less than a 3 coupe. Both non-turbo and turbo six-cylinder engines were sprightly performers, but the higher output 135i was the swiftest by far.
