The BMW 1-Series is the German brand’s entry into the premium hatchback segment. It’s a five-seater vehicle that’s known for its athletic yet sleek styling, with an exterior that poses a progressive design language that the brand is known for. The aesthetic extends to the spacious cabin which is decked in premium materials and a range of technological entertainment features. Locally, the BMW 1-Series is offered in two variants which are the 118i and M135i xDrive. The former is powered by a 1.5-liter TwinPower turbocharged gasoline engine mated to a 7-speed Steptronic DCT, while the top-spec variant comes with an M TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine paired with a Steptronic Sport transmission. Both variants are equipped with an ECO-PRO Mode which manages fuel consumption without compromising the vehicle’s performance and maximum capabilities on the road.


The refreshed model of the BMW 1 Series was launched to the Philippine market in February 2020 at the BMW Joyfest. It is offered in two variants which are the BMW 118i priced at Php 2,690,000 and the top range BMW M135i xDrive with an introductory price of Php 4,590,000.

The 1-Series is the most affordable car in BMW's lineup



Following the signature aesthetic of BMW, the 1-Series sports a smooth and seamless styling especially after its most recent facelift. Among its most notable physical upgrades is the broad front with a large double kidney grille with exclusively designed vertical slats finished in black high-gloss. On the sides are more prominent character lines that run to the rear, complemented by a flowing roofline to complete its athletic yet sophisticated look. 

The BMW 1-Series is equipped with LED headlights, LED fog lights, and 17-inch light-alloy wheels double-spoke style 549 with run-flat tires.


The BMW 1-Series’ premium character extends into the cabin boasting of generously proportioned spaces. Its modern and structured interior is equipped with sport seats for the driver and front passenger wrapped in a fabric and Sensatec combination. The whole interior is finished in the German brand’s Illuminated Berlin palette with gray accents that match the stitching on the instrument panel for a cohesive look. To create more room for cargo, rear seats can be split folded 60/40. On the dashboard is a fully digital instrument cluster for the driver’s convenience and road safety.

Technology & Safety Features

BMW completely modernized the infotainment features of the 1-Series with its latest evolution of the BMW Live Cockpit. It comes with an 8.8-inch touchscreen display that has Bluetooth and USB connectivity. In addition, the standard infotainment system is elevated by the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant that can be activated through voice command. The system can provide information about the vehicle and can control central functions such as ambient lighting and temperature. 

The BMW 1-Series offers a wide range of digital services and driver assistance technologies that include cruise control, gesture control to operate the on-board computer, a driver assistant package, and an active parking system. Its driving assistant package comes with speed limit assist, lane departure warning, crossing traffic warning rear, lane change warning, and rear collision warning. It is coupled with a parking assistant system that includes a rearview camera, active park distance control, and reversing assistant to ensure your utmost safety.

Platform & Chassis

The current BMW 1-Series model uses the same platform as that of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW X1, and BMW X2. The suspension of the 1-Series comes in the form of an Independent MacPherson strut in front and an independent multi-link at the rear. Stopping power comes from disc brakes all around.

Engine & Drivetrain
