2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe

2011 BMW 1-Series Review

(3 Stars)  New segment star

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The BMW 1 series is another new addition to the family of luxury cars from this company. The 1 series from BMW is the smallest and most compact car that BMW makes. This vehicle promises to bring consumers everything they love about the 3 series but in a smaller and more affordable package. It seems out of place for a company that has built a name on high end vehicles to make a low end compact car, but there is definitely a demand for such a vehicle.

The 1 series is a very simple vehicle that offers a lot of value, but does not offer all the extras that you would expect to find on any model from BMW. This car comes standard equipped with a 3.0 liter inline six cylinder engine, which can be fitted with a turbocharger, and you can choose from an automatic transmission or the seven-speed DCT dual clutch automated manual transmission. The back seats could have more room, but this is common with man compact vehicles. This is the only vehicle that BMW makes that starts under $30,000. If you are looking for a budget BMW, this is it.
