BMW 1 Series updated with new tech and special edition models

BMW is currently working on an entirely new 1 Series; however, there is still time for the new model to see the light of day. Meanwhile, the German automaker has updated the current-gen 1 Series with special edition models, improved interiors and more technology. 

New special edition models include the Edition Sport Line Shadow, Edition M Sport Shadow and M140i Edition Shadow. These editions stand out from their siblings with a kidney grille painted in black, LED headlights with black inserts and darkened rear lights which likewise feature LED technology. The Edition M Sport Shadow has black exhaust tailpipes, too. Other updates include different wheel sizes and designs depending on the model.

Inside, the instrument panel has been revised and improvements done to some trim pieces to make them more usable. The 1 Series now also gets the latest generation of the iDrive as standard.  

Under the hood, the 1 Series range comes with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, comprising three, four and six-cylinder variants. What’s more, the M140i, 118d and 120d can be specified with all-wheel drive for better traction in cold weather conditions. 

The new editions of the BMW 1 Series are already on sale across Europe in 3-door and 5-door versions. The car competes against the likes of Mercedes A-Class and Volkswagen Golf.
