BMW 1 Series review - What Car?

Video Channel: What Car?

The BMW 1 Series is one of the best small family cars you can buy because it’s hugely desirable, good to drive and surprisingly cheap to run.

The only rear-wheel-drive hatch in the class scores with a strong combination of performance, economy and CO2 emissions. It handles well and rides comfortably, too.

Are there any downsides? Overly quick and light steering can make the 1 Series feel slightly nervous at speed. The pedals are offset to the right, so getting comfortable behind the wheel can be tricky.

What do you think of the BMW 1 Series? Let us know in the comments below!
