The Top Gear car review:BMW 1 Series
Running costs and reliability
BMW’s new directive is towards efficiency and the engines it’s now offering, particularly the diesel variants, are nothing short of remarkable - with the margin growing yet more with this facelift. Even the 190bhp, 7.1sec-to-60mph 120d averages 65mpg and the new 1.5-litre three-cylinder (yes, really) 116d EfficientDynamics Plus averages a staggering 83mpg, emits 89g/km CO2 yet still does 0-60mph in around 10 seconds. It’s one of the greenest diesel cars you can buy - staggering.
