Used BMW 1 Series for Sale
Why should I go for a used BMW 1 Series?

Take your pick from a great range of BMW 1 Series used cars for sale with Big Motoring World – with accessible financing and part-exchanging options available across our entire range.

The BMW 1 Series may be the entry-level model in the manufacturer's catalogue, but don't let that fool you. It's one of the leading subcompact executive cars on the market today and has been since its introduction in 2004. A premium hatchback for those who enjoy driving first and foremost, the fun handling and performance characteristics of the 1 Series make it the most engaging option in the segment.

Still, there's more to the BMW 1 Series than the fun to be had behind the wheel. An efficient engine line-up, varied trim options, a great standard equipment package and a high-quality interior make it a great everyday motor with plenty of badge appeal to boot.

We go BIG on value and quality across our full BMW 1 Series used car catalogue. Browse our full range online right away, or head down to your nearest Big Motoring World location today.

You'll find a range of used and nearly new BMW 1 Series cars for sale below market prices at Big Motoring World, but why go for a second-hand 1 Series in the first place?

Engaging drive

A manufacturer lauded for the driving experience it provides before anything else, the 1 Series is no exception to the rest of the BMW family when it comes to the fun factor. Up until 2019, the 1 Series was exclusively rear-wheel drive, with front and four-wheel-drive options coming in with the new release that year.

As the only rear-wheel-drive option in the segment, you won't find a better handling, more performance-oriented driving experience in a class that features the more sensible Audi A3 and tech-heavy Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Great standard equipment

Regardless of the model or trim level you go for, you'll find your used 1 Series comes generously equipped.

The entry-level SE trim is kitted out with plenty of high-tech standard equipment like a sat-nav, rear parking sensors and a 7-inch infotainment system. Further style and comfort features like 16-inch alloys and single-zone climate control mean the 1 Series ticks a lot of boxes without having to move up the trim levels.

Model upgrades available

If you do want to explore more premium trim options, however, there's plenty to look forward to. The 1 Series Sport trim ramps up the aesthetics with its sleek high-gloss Shadowline exterior, featuring a dark chrome exhaust pipe and 17” double-spoke light alloy wheels. It features multiple drive modes, Servotronic power steering, and comprehensive safety features.

The M Sport trim brings 18” alloy wheels and firmer suspension for improved handling, as well as a sharper design aesthetic with greater detailing. It offers a larger fuel tank, and its 2.0-litre M135i model engine can kick out a powerful 302bhp.
