BMW 1 Series: Drivers’ Car of the Year

Have you noticed the increasing number of car drivers continuously fiddling with their smartphone, or music system, or worse, iPad, even while driving. We bet you’ve seen people like this on more than one occasion. Yes, incredibly stupid and irresponsible.

But there are some cars that, when you drive, you think of little else apart from the way the power reaches the wheels, the way the steering points the car precisely in any direction, the way it communicates with the driver about what the front wheels are up to, what state of togetherness the tyre and the road surface are in.

On the limit on an open highway in cars like this, there is a sense of being in control, and even in slow traffic, your hands never tire of talking to the steering wheel.
