ReviewitOnline Ratings are based on a number of factors including reputation, appearance, model age, engine & other comparative aspects.

The power of the 1 Series Coupe is like no other. It is not only a fun and sporty ride, but it is quite powerful, giving many other vehicles on the highway a run for their money. It is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-6 engine that delivers 230 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque, which is paired up with a six-speed manual transmission. Accelerating zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds is impressive enough, but the fact that it can stop from 60 mph in only 110 feet simply adds to the excitement. In terms of safety, the BMW 1 Series Coupe has six airbags in the front and side of the vehicle. It also features a crash sensor, which comes from the 2011 model that has the fascinating ability to detect when the impact of an accident has occurred to perform important safety measures. These corrective measures include unlocking all doors, turning on hazard lights as well as interior lights and shutting off the alternator and fuel pump to decrease the likelihood of a fire or explosion from happening. It's like the car grants drivers their own guardian angel on the road.

Since all BMW owners are entitled to the Ultimate Service program, road assistance is also offered with this 2012 1 Series Coupe. This includes fantastic perks, such as replacing brake pads and rotors that may go bad for up to 4 years from the time of purchase, as well as oil changes, new wiper blades and necessary inspections.

Since the 2011 model, BMW had made some noteworthy changes to the 1 Series Coupes in the 2012 version. These improvements are seen in the air curtain of the 128i trim, which significantly aids in the enhancement of aerodynamics. Minor changes have also taken place in the tail-lights and headlights on both trims, but neither are worth getting overly excited over. Other than these changes, everything else has pretty much remained the same from 2011 model.
