BMW 1 Series Lease

The BMW 1 Series, first unleashed back in 2004, has won an envious reputation as one of the best premium hatchbacks available to lease. Sitting below the 2 Series Coupe, it’s also one of the best-selling cars in the BMW portfolio. And recent styling tweaks have not only made it powerful, it also looks more aggressive than ever, as it continues to compete with the likes of the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

One of the main reasons for the 1 Series’ success is its pristine interior design, which is almost a tribute to BMW's earlier models which were so highly recognized for their commitment to cabin luxury and superiority. Alongside the swathes of interior features and technology, legroom has also been improved considerably compared with previous 1 Series models.

When it comes to powertrains, the super-efficient 116d diesel engine offers up to 62 miles to the gallon as well as low CO2 emissions,

Meanwhile the 1 Series comes in various spec levels - SE, Sport, M Sport, the 128ti, and the performance-packed, all-wheel drive M135i xDRIVE.

The 306hp M135i packs a real punch - accelerating from 0-62mph in just 4.7 seconds.

While a brand new 128ti is a Volkswagen Golf GTI rival, using a 2.0 petrol engine to churn out 265hp and a 0-62mph time of 6.1 seconds.

Our sales advisers have a great knowledge when it comes to BMW 1 Series Lease with a wealth of experience they're able to draw upon.

BMW 1 Series Review

A BMW has to offer an engaging drive, and the move from a sporty rear-drive chassis to a generic front-wheel-drive setup could water down the experience. However, as you’ll discover, the switch has emboldened the car, making it a zesty and alert hatchback that encourages playtime.

BMW 1 Series Frequently Asked Questions

Having the car you really want on your driveway has never been easier, and the BMW 1 Series is a driver’s car you’ll want on your drive. Rather than having to worry about the ticket price, leasing allows you to budget every month with the costs fixed across your leasing term, while still being able to specify the car the way you want it. With variants from economical family models to a high-performance sportscar-rivalling version, the BMW 1 Series range will have something to suit your needs, whether that be high equipment levels, luxurious comfort or hard-edged driving engagement.

If you’re unsure whether it’s better to lease or to buy your new car, then have a read of our Buying Vs Leasing Guide which details out the main things for you to consider. 

A range of models and trim levels comes with a range of costs, but there’s not that much difference in monthly rates between the entry-level models and the hot M135i sports models; the car you desire might well be within reach. You can be sure that Select Car Leasing will offer competitive prices no matter what you are looking for, with our reach within the industry allowing us to bring you the BMW 1 Series models at excellent monthly rates. Search by your monthly price range, or check out the special offers available. 

The BMW 1 Series is a spacious yet sporty five-door design, with a choice of potent petrol or frugal diesel power to suit your needs. The airy, elegant interior boasts optimised comfort with automatic air-conditioning, and the option of heated seats and mood lighting. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional system, complete with BMW’s high-tech Intelligent Personal Assistant, makes the experience unique to you, and the ample safety equipment will get you where you want to go securely and in comfort. The iconic kidney-shaped grille and attractive styling will turn heads, no matter which model you choose. 

With the maximum five stars awarded by safety experts Euro NCAP, the BMW 1 Series offers an excellent level of security for both the driver and passengers. With lots of safety equipment and driver aids fitted as standard - including automatic emergency braking and dynamic stability control - and with pedestrian and active safety features also included, you can have plenty of confidence in your choice. Couple this with ample head, leg and boot space, and the BMW 1 Series is a practical and safe leasing choice. 

The BMW 1 Series has three trim levels available - SE, Sport and M Sport - as well as two extra special models, the sporty 128ti and the uber-hot-hatch M135i. The entry-level SE car comes well equipped, with all the essentials, but you can spec various options to enhance your experience. Alternatively, stepping up to the Sport or M Sport adds a few more toys, focussing on technology or style respectively, still safe in the knowledge that you’re getting a great leasing deal. If you’re looking for a hot hatch, why not have a scroll through our lease deals for the 128ti or iconic M135i.

Recently took delivery of a brand new BMW which was ordered through Select Car Leasing and from start to finish I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the service I received. Andy regularly kept me informed with updates on the built process of my car and always provided me with answers to any of my questions. Entire process was slick and efficient, and would definitely order through them again. Fantastic!
