Three-door BMW 1-Series

Do you want a BMW 1-Series that is just as ugly as the current 1-Series, but a little less practical? Good news!

BMW just launched a three-door version of the 1er. It might no make much sense, but BMW is offering a range of good engines for it to win the fans over. A new entry-level model, the BMW 114i equipped with a straight four-cylinder engine delivering 75 kW/102 hp, is also being launched. Two additional models having petrol engines and four diesel versions – including the BMW 116d EfficientDynamics Edition with 85 kW/116 hp.

What’s more, along with the more expensive models, BMW is offering all the sport and convenience packages for the new 1er. The problem is, they will only add to the price of the car, which is already unreasonably high.


Check out details of the 1-Series 3-door in the press release below:

Individualisation with the BMW Lines.

A selection of three non-metallic colours and eight metallic paint finishes are offered for the exterior of the new three-door BMW 1-Series. One non-metallic and five metallic colours are available for the M135i model. The standard interior features Satin Silver trim and upholstery in Move cloth design. Optional interior trims and seats upholstered in Dakota leather (offered in two different colours) are also available. All upholstery variants are also offered for the optional sport seats. Buyers wanting to personalise the new three-door BMW 1-Series can select one of the BMW Lines packages, which include exclusive design and equipment features that intensify the sporty or progressive character of the new compact model.

The BMW Sport Line is distinguished by exterior elements finished in high-gloss black: the kidney grille slats, the strut and the bezels for the inlet vents, as well as the trim on the rear bumper. Other equipment includes 16-inch light alloy star-spoke wheels, black trim for the exhaust pipe and door sill finishers with aluminium inserts and “BMW Sport” lettering. Other additional options are mirror caps in high-gloss black and 17-inch light alloy bi-colour wheels. Among the exclusive interior design features are sport seats with selected upholstery, a sport leather steering wheel with contrasting red stitching, a sliding armrest, high-gloss black interior trim and accent trim in matt Red Coral. The look of the instrument cluster is distinguished by special chronoscales and digits. The car key is accented in red. The tone of the ambient interior lighting can be switched between orange and white, and there is additional lighting for the centre console and the footwells.

The three-door BMW 1-Series can be delivered with the BMW Urban Line package, which is easy to recognise with chrome kidney grille slats having white sides, as well as a white strut across the front centre air intake. Exclusively in conjunction with the BMW Urban Line, the bezels for the front inlet vents at each side are finished in the colour of the vehicle. Additional individualism is achieved with the white trim strip on the rear bumper, 16-inch light alloy V-spoke wheels or optional 17-inch wheels with a white, gloss-lathed finish, and door sill finishers with aluminium inserts and “BMW Urban” lettering. White exterior mirror caps are also offered as an option. The exclusive flair of the interior is highlighted with selected cloth or leather seats, a sport leather steering wheel, a sliding armrest and interior trim made of innovative acrylic glass. Other interior trim choices include white or black with accent lines in matt Oxide Silver. The BMW Urban Line package also offers mood lighting effects with ambient and welcome lights in the colour variations orange and LED Royal Blue or white and Royal Blue. Lights on the B-pillar intensify the experience. The car key features white detailing.
