(lifePR) (München, )The all-new, second generation BMW 1 Series occupies a distinctive niche within its segment, offering a unique and rewarding combination of premium-quality handling, aesthetics and innovative technology. It remains the only rear-wheeldrive car in its class, and with a range of advanced TwinPower petrol and diesel engines, the new BMW 1 Series offers an even more sporty but fuel-efficient proposition. This is further boosted by BMW's EfficientDynamics technologies as standard. Longer and wider than the model it replaces, the new car simultaneously provides sleeker, sportier styling, while increased cabin dimensions and comfort result in an all new interior.
The new BMW 1 Series goes on sale in the UK on 17 September 2011, with a choice of three diesel and two petrol engines. Prices start from £19,375 OTR for a BMW 116i ES
