The BMW 1 Series is the premium hatchback for ‘car people’. If you value driving experience above all else, the 1 Series’ punchy engine range and fun driving dynamics make it the pick of the high-end hatch segment. Plus, a switch to front-wheel drive for the latest model makes for a much more practical and spacious offering, meaning our BMW 1 Series business and personal lease deals offer plenty of sensibilities to go with the traditionally excellent performance that comes with the BMW badge.

Why lease a BMW 1 Series?

The BMW 1 Series is one of the big three premium hatchbacks from the major German manufacturers – the other two being the Mercedes A-Class and Audi A3. All have their USPs, but the 1 Series offers arguably the best: driver appeal.

As long as the rivalry has existed, the 1 Series – like all BMWs – has offered the most in the segment in terms of driving dynamics. A range of punchy yet economical engines are complemented by lively handling which makes the 1 Series a uniquely fun operator.

The decision to move the drivetrain to the front wheels may have upset some hardcore BMW fans, but that adjustment has allowed the 1 Series to become more practical without affecting performance. You’ll get more space in the back, while the ergonomics and tech package have been updated to make everything more comfortable and user-friendly.

Offering the same amazing driving experience with improved sensibilities, our BMW 1 Series business and personal lease deals are better than ever.

That really depends on what you want from your next car. If you want more car for your money, lower upfront and monthly payments, and a short-term contract, leasing a BMW 1 Series is probably the best option for you. If you want to own the car, plan on keeping it for a long time and would rather do without the contractual obligations you’ll probably have with a lease deal, buying makes more sense. It can often be a tough call. The good news is we offer impartial advice and can even recommend PCP/HP deals to you if you think you’d rather buy than lease.
The two obvious contenders to the premium hatchback throne are the 1 Series’ German stablemates, the Mercedes A-Class and Audi A3. All three options have their strengths – the A-Class has a superb interior package, the A3 is a refined all-round option and the 1 Series offers the best drive.
