Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
Not as cheap as you’d expect, but still one of the best hot hatches on sale.
Less inviting to own than a Mercedes C-coupe, but scores points with excellent driving dynamics, a strong range, well laid-out cabin and class-best infotainment.
A fantastic everyday proposition, a hot hatch that's easy to live with. Mostly for good
A fun car with a practical side, but no longer one of the sharpest hot hatches on sale
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
