Premium standard also in terms of equipment.
Equipment features so far to be found primarily in upmarket cars highlight the premium character of the BMW 1 Series Coupé in terms of comfort and safety. Available as an option, bi-xenon headlights and Adaptive Headlights complete with integrated Bending Lights make driving in the dark safer than ever before.
The daytime headlight function in typical BMW style with two corona rings on each headlight unit enhances the perception of the car under normal and “murky” light conditions. Drivers following from behind, in turn, are warned that the driver of a BMW 1 Series Coupé might be braking in an emergency by two-stage brake lights in LED look featured as standard. And last but not least, the rear seats come as standard with ISOFIX fastenings for child seats.
With the power and noise level of a modern BMW diesel engine hardly differing any more from that of a gasoline engine, there is now the risk that the driver – especially when driving a rental car – might fill up the tank with the wrong fuel. Precisely this is why the BMW 120d Coupé and the BMW 123d Coupé prevent such a possible mistake by means of a special gadget on the tank filler manifold, this tank safeguard accommodating only a diesel pump with its larger diameter.

Enhanced iDrive and integration of an external MP3 player.
Interacting with the central Controller, the optional iDrive control system enables the driver to mastermind all secondary and comfort functions easily and conveniently – as an option also by voice entry – thus controlling all communication, air conditioning, entertainment and optional navigation functions with perfect ease.
In the BMW 1 Series Coupé iDrive comes furthermore with no less than eight individually programmable favourite buttons enabling the user to retrieve functions required particularly often – navigation destinations, radio stations, or specific telephone numbers – at the simple touch of a button. The sensors on the buttons show the function required at a simple touch in the folding TFT screen on the instrument panel, before the driver actually presses down the button. This allows him to choose the function required safely and conveniently, always keeping his eyes on the road in the process.
Should the BMW 1 Series Coupé not be fitted with a navigation system, the space for the TFT screen in the upper half of the instrument panel is used in conjunction with the optional Storage Package as an additional storage box.
Indeed, this box comes complete with a folding lid and is illuminated inside.
The audio systems offered for the new BMW 1 Series Coupé are among the best and most outstanding in their segment. The USB interface supplementing the standard AUX connector, in turn, offers supreme diversity in entertainment, enabling the user to connect an external MP3 player such as an Apple iPod to the audio system.
A further option is to connect a conventional USB stick in order to play music files on the car’s audio system, again in the interest of maximum versatility.
In all these cases the system is controlled and music is selected via the iDrive Controller and the screen, or, on cars without iDrive, directly from the radio.
Should the car be fitted with a centre armrest, the external player may also be housed in a special box at the bottom of the centre armrest in order to protect it from damage.


Seats adjustable for height and folding rear seat backrest both featured as standard.
Driver and front passenger seats adjustable for height as well as electrically operated window lifts come as standard in the BMW 1 Series Coupé.
The map pockets integrated in the door linings, as well as the glove compartment, provide a perfect match for the gently rounded lines of the interior and at the same time offer convenient storage space. Two clothes hooks on the B-pillars also featured as standard enable the driver and passengers to hang up their jackets or coats for optimum convenience.
Map nets in the backrests of the front seats available as an option and a storage shelf between the individual rear seats featured as standard enhance the range of storage options to an even higher level.
A modular ski-bag integrated in the middle section of the backrest is available as an option, and as a feature quite unusual in a coupé, the rear seat backrests tilt forward in a 60 : 40 split, increasing luggage capacity of the 370-litre luggage compartment to an even higher level.
A baggage net featured as standard as well as optionally available, additional folding lashing points and tightening straps prevent items in the luggage compartment from slipping around. An optional 12-volt power socket in the luggage compartment, finally, allows convenient operation of external units such as a cooling box.

M Sports Package for even more dynamic performance and a striking look.
The particularly sports-minded driver of the BMW 1 Series Coupé is able to upgrade his car in both looks and driving dynamics by means of various components from BMW M GmbH. The M Sports Package available as an option, for example, is already included in part – and in modified form – in the BMW 135i Coupé, comprising the M Aerodynamics Package made up of specially designed front and rear bumpers as well as special side-sills and foglamps. Le Mans Blue metallic paintwork is reserved exclusively for models with the M Sports Package.
High-gloss Satin Chrome included in the Sports Package gives the side windows a particularly sporting touch, other features being M light-alloy wheels in two different design options – with wheel sizes ranging from 7 x 17 all the way to 8.5 x 18 inches and with tyres up to 245/35 R18.
Sports seats included as standard in the M Sports Package offer enhanced side support and are finished in sporting, highly distinctive cloth and leatherette, while also available as an option in Boston leather.
Further features of the M Sports Package are the M Sports Suspension also offering higher traction and further reduction of body roll on the BMW 1 Series Coupè, door cutout trim presenting the M logo, the M leather steering wheel and the M footrest for the driver’s left foot. The gaiters on the gearshift lever and handbrake, as well as the handbrake handle, in turn, are finished as standard in high-quality soft leather.
The roof lining on the M Sports Package comes in Anthracite, and the interior features offered in the Package are rounded off by trim bars in Glacier Silver aluminium highlighting the sporting character of the cockpit.
