Design and features of 2016 BMW 1 Series facelift is disclosed ahead of public premiere. The hatchback’s snout is completely redesigned to make it look as macho as the other Bimmers, as a result of widespread criticism. Headlamps are made sleek, kidney grille is improved in size and a new bumper is fit to wrap up the new fascia. To complement the new frontal look, wheel arches housing brand new alloy wheels are flared a bit more and new character lines are drawn.Since the rear end of outgoing BMW 1 Series was also dull looking, the German automaker revamped the entire section to include new 2-piece tail lamps with L-shaped graphics and LED lights, and apron as well.
Interior of 2016 BMW 1 Series facelift is refurbished with new choice of upholstery, new chrome accents for buttons and knobs (near iDrive controller), and given a 6.5 inch multimedia unit as standard. Optional extras include a larger 8.8 inch display.
BMW 1 Series 118d will continue to be powered by 2.0 litre four-cylinder mill, but in a new tune with power bumped up from 143 bhp to 150 bhp. Peak torque will remain unaltered at 320 Nm.
