About the BMW 1 Series

Approved Used BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch Image 1

BMW launched the 1 Series in 2004. It’s become a popular model, marking its third generation of design and development in 2019. A compact hatchback with a premium feel – it’s part of the BMW family, after all – it’s a sporty-looking car with enough interior capacity to comfortably seat four or five people.

At Dick Lovett, we have a great selection of approved used BMW 1 Series models for sale if you're looking for a used BMW 1 Series for sale near me. Explore our latest deals and offers online, or get in touch with our dealerships in Bristol, Hungerford, Melksham (near Bath) and Swindon to ask about BMW 1 Series used cars for sale.

Why buy a Used BMW 1 Series?

You’ll want to buy a used BMW 1 Series if you’re looking for a small family car with a dynamic, sporty twist. The BMW 1 Series might be classed as a compact hatchback, but don’t be fooled; there’s plenty of interior space for passengers with pleasing head and leg room.

The interior is smartly designed too, with a neat dashboard layout and an infotainment touchscreen among the features that put it ahead of many rivals in class.

On the road, BMW 1 Series used cars are powerful and agile, providing a superb driving experience. While the newest models are now no longer available with rear wheel drive, the used BMW 1 Series range may include this as an option. BMW 1 Series models that were built as rear-wheel drive by default were E81, E82, E87 and E88 on the first generation of the model, and F20 and F21 on the second generation. Front wheel drive and four wheel drive are also available.

When you buy a used BMW 1 Series from Dick Lovett, all our models come with a BMW Warranty. This means your approved used BMW 1 Series comes with unlimited mileage protection against breakdown and repair costs for parts and labour, for a minimum of 12 months. Newer used cars get the balance of a new car warranty, so a one-year old BMW 1 Series would have two years remaining on its warranty.

The warranty covers the battery and exhaust, and is backed by BMW and not third party insurers.

Tips & Advice for Buying a Used BMW 1 Series

If you’re in the market to buy a used BMW 1 Series, there are a few factors you need to consider.

Explore our selection of BMW 1 Series used models and you’ll discover a choice of different trims, engine sizes and types; the 1 Series is available in both manual and automatic transmission, and in petrol or diesel fuel variants.

Engine sizes include from 1.5 litre, 2.0 litre and 3.0 litre. The latter is the most powerful used BMW 1 Series model, capable of 340 BHP and 0-62 MPH acceleration of 4.6 seconds – so, if performance is your priority, this is a great choice.

Trims available on the BMW 1 Series include the SE and Sport, and the M Sport. There’s also an M Sport Shadow Edition – this is also a trim option on used BMW 3 Series – which provides dark design styling around headlights, alloy wheels and other features.

The BMW 1 Series 128ti is one of the newer Approved Used models available. A front wheel drive, it has a two-litre turbo engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.

With used BMW 1 Series models, you’ll also find a choice of drivetrains, from front wheel drive, four wheel drive and rear wheel drive (which has been discontinued on new 1 Series models 2019 onwards). Something to consider when viewing BMW 1 used cars for sale, if this is an important factor for you.

So, when buying a used BMW 1 Series, be sure to think about the specification that you want. Another tip is finance. How will you pay for the car? At Dick Lovett BMW, we offer flexible finance deals, including Personal Contract Purchase (PCP), and Hire Purchase (HP). This gives you a choice of how you pay for your car, and whether you want to own it at the end of the payment period, or have the freedom to make that decision later on. You can read more about finance options and plans here.

If you have a current BMW you wish to sell to use as part exchange towards your next vehicle, your Dick Lovett dealership can give you a quote to buy it from you. Go to the ‘sell my BMW’ page here.
