Mk2 1 Series

Now users are using the third generation of the BMW 1 series. Previously BMW 1 series had Mk2 1 Series which offered excellent rear-wheel-drive thrills. With efficient engines and five-door body styles, it was the quickest version of this series. From 2011 to 2019, it was one of the budget options still able to deliver a decent economy. However, this model doesn’t offer much comfortable interior space compared to its close rivals.

Before Mk2 1 Series BMW has the most modern Mk1 1 Series of that time. It has both petrol and diesel option. The solid build quality and user-friendly interface make this model a wonderful choice for users. But this six-cylinder 130i model doesn’t have enough interior space.

The German brand is well-known for fine-handling rear-wheel-drive cars. The good reputation and excellent build quality of this series make it separate from its rivals like Mercedes A-Class and Audi A3. This series is enjoying massive success from the beginning. It was the first initiative of BMW of delivering higher-spec versions of models in the market. It helped the carmaker to perform as a player in a new segment of hatchback stalwarts like VW Golf, Ford Focus, and Mazda 3.
