BMW puts price on 1-series hatchback

BMW'S new 1-series hatchback range will be priced from £15,690 when it goes on sale in September.

Customers will be able to choose from the standard car, which comes with six airbags, dynamic stability control (DSC) and traction control (DTC), a CD player, run-flat tyres, electric front windows and engine start button.

Upgrading to SE offers automatic air conditioning, multi-function steering wheel and rear parking sensors, while Sport models add sports suspension, colour-coded bodywork and a sports steering wheel.

The entry level petrol engine in the 116i is a 115bhp 1.6-litre unit, with a 0-62mph sprint time of 10.8 seconds and a combined fuel consumption figure of 37.7mpg.

Alternatively, the 120i offers a 150bhp Valvetronic 2.0-litre engine with a six-speed manual and a 0-62mph sprint time of 8.7 seconds.

The flagship diesel will be the 163bhp 120d, with a 0-62mpg time of 7.9 seconds and fuel consumption of 49.6mpg on the combined cycle, while a tamer 122bhp 118d uses the same 2.0-litre engine and promises to be just as frugal with a benchmark acceleration time from 0-62mph in 10 seconds.
