Gearheads in Australia can rejoice as BMW lifts the veil on pricing and specifications for the next-generation 1 Series hatchback arriving in showrooms by year’s end.

Offered in two distinct flavors, the 2025 1 Series boasts a starting price of AU$56,500, slotting in competitively beneath the Mercedes-Benz A-Class while carrying a slight premium over the Audi A3.

Under the hood of the base, 118 sits a 1.5L turbocharged three-cylinder engine churning out a healthy 115 kW and 230 Nm of torque. Power is channeled through a smooth-shifting 7-speed automatic transmission.

Remarkably for an entry-level offering, the 118 boasts a wealth of standard features, including 18-inch alloy wheels, the coveted M Sport package for a sportier aesthetic, and adaptive LED headlights that automatically adjust for optimal visibility.

A panoramic sunroof adds a touch of luxury, while a comprehensive suite of advanced driver-assistance systems prioritizes safety on the road.

Comfort isn’t forgotten either, with heated seats and a fully digital instrument cluster creating a driver-centric and inviting cabin. Ascending the performance ladder is the fire-breathing M135 xDrive, priced at AU$82,500.

This performance-oriented hatchback packs a punch with its 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, unleashing a mighty 233 kW and 400 Nm of torque. The potent powerplant propels the M135 xDrive from 0 to 100 kph in a blistering 4.9 seconds, solidifying its position as a true contender against established rivals like the Audi S3 Sportback and Mercedes-AMG A 35.

With its all-wheel-drive system and sharpened driving dynamics, the M135 xDrive promises an exhilarating driving experience for performance enthusiasts. Compared to the entry-level 118, the enthusiast-focused M135 xDrive boasts a collection of upgrades that raise both comfort and driving performance.

The cabin is bolstered with sportier front seats that incorporate a massage function to ease fatigue on long journeys. A luxurious panoramic sunroof opens up the interior and provides a bright, airy feel, while a heated steering wheel provides a welcome touch of comfort during colder weather.

To raise the in-car entertainment experience, a premium sound system from Harman Kardon is included, ensuring crisp and clear audio.

On the exterior, the M135 xDrive boasts a more aggressive aesthetic with M Sport brakes and a rear spoiler that hints at its enhanced performance capabilities.

Furthermore, the M135 xDrive comes equipped with a comprehensive suite of driver assistance features, including active cruise control with stop-and-go functionality to handle traffic jams with ease, and lane departure warning to keep you centered in your lane. This suite of features ensures a confident and safe driving experience.
