This is an 128i BMW 1-Series is incredibly fun thanks to ample power, precise steering and strong brakes. The base 128i coupe gets 18/28 mpg city/highway average, but keep in mind that the 1-Series has a six-cylinder engine.
Reviewers said the 1-Series looks clean and elegant. This model comes with leather seats, dual-zone climate control, a 10-speaker stereo and an auxiliary port. Leather seats, power front seats, BMW Assist, Bluetooth, navigation, HD radio, an iPod interface, satellite radio and a stereo upgrade were optional. That features list is typical for the class and more standard tech. The 1-Series has a list of standard safety features that’s typical for the class, and rear parking assist was optional.
This is a convertible so it lacks interior space. Test drivers thought the front seats were comfortable, offering good head- and legroom, but found the back seats cramped. Neither the coupe nor the convertible models have much cargo space, but that’s not surprising for a sporty two-door car.
