Double kidney grille.
The characteristic double kidney grille is designed as a connected element and features a kidney grille frame in Chrome high-gloss and vertical slats in black high-gloss. As the central visual highlight, it underlines the presence and aesthetics of the vehicle in the front view.
Mirror caps in Black.
The mirror caps are painted Black high-gloss instead of in the body colour. They visually emphasise the vehicle's athletic character and create a striking individual impression.
M high-gloss Shadow Line.
M high-gloss Shadow Line includes numerous equipment features in Black high-gloss. These include the window cavity seals, the window surrounds and guides, the B-pillars as well as the exterior mirror frames, the mirror triangle, blade and mirror base.
The 90 mm tailpipe trim (on the left in 3-cylinder engines, on the left and right in 4-cylinder engines) sets an optical accent and emphasises the vehicle’s sporty character.
Sport leather steering wheel.
The black Sport leather steering wheel with three spokes features a galvanised decorative trim. A thick rim and contoured thumb rests provide an exceptionally pleasant, high-grip feel.
Interior trim finishers 'Illuminated Berlin'.
The interior trim finishers 'Illuminated Berlin' with 'High Matt' accent on the dashboard and door trim lend the interior a progressive ambience with a high sense of value. The shimmering pattern of the discreetly backlit finishers creates both an attractive as well as a pleasant atmosphere in the vehicle.
Panorama glass roof.
When open, the Panorama glass roof provides a great deal of fresh air. Closed, it creates a bright, light-flooded atmosphere in the interior. It opens and closes completely automatically at the push of a button or with the vehicle key and is equipped with slide and lift functions, a roller sunblind and wind deflector.
M leather steering wheel with contrast stitching.
The M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, an M badge and an integrated driver-side airbag is featured in three-spoke design. With a steering wheel rim in leather 'Walknappa' Black with red contrast stitching and contoured thumb rests, it provides a direct, athletic steering experience.
Drive train, chassis and M Sport steering of the BMW 1 Series.
Whether for powerful acceleration, agile handling or safe roadholding – 1 Series BMW turns every trip into a highlight thanks to its efficient engine and a set of dynamic drive train and chassis components. Explore selected driving dynamics features and configure your tailor-made BMW 1 Series.
M Sports steering.
The M Sports steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response and reduces steering effort. Your vehicle can be directed more precisely, offering highly athletic handling characteristics, particularly on winding roads.
Steptronic Sport transmission.
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offers incredibly sporty gear changes. Whether automatic or manual using gearshift paddles or gear lever – for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving. In SPORT mode and with the gear lever in the left-hand S/M position, the gear shifts are configured for the maximum performance.
The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system smoothly and variably distributes drive power to the front and rear wheels for maximum traction, driving dynamics and safety in every driving situation. For even better agility, the electronically controlled power distribution for instance counterbalances oversteer or understeer on bends.
The adaptive suspension makes it possible to adjust the damper characteristics to suit the driving situation and combines ride comfort and driving dynamics with the best possible safety. Via the Driving Experience Control, you can choose the standard COMFORT mode or the SPORT mode.
DRIVER ASSISTANCE AND CONNECTIVITY.
Intelligent technologies and driver assistance systems in the BMW 1 Series.
Operate the on-board computer by gesture control, have your vehicle move into its parking space independently or ask the intelligent voice assistant for the next filling station. The BMW 1 Series offers you a large number of helpful functions, digital services and driver assistance systems – for a maximum of comfort and safety.
- Driver Assistance
Parking Assistant makes parking the vehicle easier. The Rear View camera provides a clearer view behind the vehicle. Active Park Distance Control offers increased protection against damage caused by parking. Parking Assistant parks the vehicle automatically, parallel or perpendicular to the street, and leaves parallel parking spaces. The Reversing Assistant supports you when reversing, e.g. in narrow lanes.
BMW Gesture Control.
With BMW Gesture Control, certain functions can be operated by means of defined hand movements. For selected operations the system will for example recognise gestures such as 'swiping' or 'pointing' for accepting or rejecting an incoming call. Volume can be adjusted by circular motions of the index finger.
BMW Head-Up Display.
The large, full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects information relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, thereby allowing them to fully concentrate on driving. Information such as the current speed, navigation directions, Speed Limit Info including no-overtaking indicator, along with telephone and entertainment lists are displayed, depending on the equipment.
BMW Live Cockpit Professional.
The BMW Live Cockpit Professional with navigation function includes two high-quality displays consisting of a high-resolution 10.25" Control Display that can be operated by touch and a fully digital 10.25" instrument display. The BMW Operating System 7 can also be operated via the iDrive Touch Controller.
Why go without the features of your smartphone in your BMW when you can continue operating it as usual? With smartphone integration, your vehicle supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto by means of a wireless connection between your smartphone and the vehicle. This allows you to conveniently use familiar functions and various apps in the vehicle.

Interior design features.
The interior has a distinctly sporty and elegant atmosphere thanks to 128ti specific design features. This is guaranteed by details such as the M leather steering wheel with red contrast stitching, the exclusive sport seats with red accents, the matching exclusive floor mats with red edging and the embroidered ti logo on the centre armrest.
100% sDrive & Slip Differential.
Fitted as standard in the BMW 1 Series 128ti, the slip differential improves traction and driving stability of the vehicle when accelerating out of bends, at high cornering speeds and on different road surfaces by distributing the driving force between the front wheels to match the situation. Self-assured and dynamic driving characteristics are the result.
BMW 128ti engine.
A compact athlete conveying pure driving pleasure: The TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW 128ti is powerful because it is equipped with new pistons, a larger turbocharger, optimised intake air routing and a flap-controlled exhaust system.
M Sport suspension.
M Sport suspension lowers the vehicle by approximately ten millimetres. It also features shorter suspension springs and tighter, 128ti specific damper settings, as well as harder stabilisers. Combined together, they result in a more direct suspension design, which enables a distinctly sporty driving style.
The steering with 128ti specific settings ensures a direct and agile steering response. The vehicle can be directed more precisely, offering highly athletic handling characteristics, particularly on winding roads.
