Orders open for the 2015 BMW 1 Series

March 26, 2015

At Car Leasing Made Simple, we are pleased to announce the new 2015 BMW 1 Series is available on lease now with the first deliveries expected to be made this Summer.

It has been a few weeks since we learnt BMW gave a facelift to 1 Series, which we discussed in our earlier post here. The 2015 1 Series model made a strong public debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

The 1 Series is one of the most popular and respectable cars from the German brand. The company has made mild updates including styling, new range of engines and interior upgrades.

To maintain its premium badge, the 1 series has had major updates; see our comprehensive list here: 2015 1 Series facelift updates.

The new 1 Series is one of the most powerful compact hatchbacks in its class and is expected to write a fresh chapter in the compact model’s success story. The company has another reason to cherish the success of 1 Series; Regensburg Plant has had the two millionth model roll off the production line.

The 116d is the entry level model which has a three-cylinder 1.5 litre unit producing 114bhp (brake horse power) and emits just 94g/km (grams per kilometre) of CO2 with the standard six-speed manual gearbox. (dependant on tyre sizes)
