The transition from to interior is formed in a particularly quality way by a chrome line all round as standard on the BMW 135i and BMW 125i Convertible and as an optional on the four cylinder models.

The run of the line parallel to the road emphasises the flat and therefore, for a BMW typical silhouette. In conjunction the chrome line an ergonomically positioned seat belt for the front seats is in chrome.

The with space for up to four thanks to its high quality are clear structure and … solutions, corresponding to the impression of of vehicles in higher segments. The cap surfaces, which start the windscreen and continue through to the are markedly harmonised. Broad horizontal running lines the cockpit.

BMW is the first manufacturer in the world to use this to reduce the heating up of the surfaces by The sun reflective technology used to the leather uses special pigments worked into the which cause the ultraviolet in the sunlight to be reflected.

Heating up of the and armrest surfaces caused by sun can thus be largely prevented. The of the sun reflective technology is particularly with dark interior In comparison to conventional leather a temperature difference of up to 20 degrees can be achieved.

Sun reflective technology works on lighter leather producing a much lower of heating up of the surfaces by the sunlight.

A control of air distribution in the BMW 1 Series means that the automatic control offers greater even with the roof

In addition to the three levels “medium”, and “intensive” the automatic control also has a special mode which can be used the roof is open. As soon as setting is selected, the ventilation reacts less to the interior Instead the air conditioning controls particularly to the outside temperature and factors to establish the intensity of the

The optimum wind deflector on the new BMW 1 Convertible reduces above all the air in the interior at higher speeds. The deflector can be firmly fixed by a few adjustments via inlets in the side at the rear of the car if required.

Load possibilities with transit more room for sports

The 240 litres luggage space in the BMW 1 Series Convertible even the roof open is noticeably and not beaten by any other convertible in vehicle segment for load As soon as the soft top is closed, the cover which separates the from the luggage space can be upwards. This increases the space to 280 litres.

A specially rear seat backrest the BMW 1 Series Convertible a further and, for this class of unique functionality. Its optionally load opening into the of the interior of the car including a transit bag is and wider than conventional of this sort.

This that the driver and front passenger have even freedom when carrying equipment and other bulky The transit bag is large enough to for example, two snowboards or a full golf bag.

Even if the is open there is ample for two full size golf to be stowed crosswise. If one is pushed into the transit bag then is additional room in the luggage for additional bags for example. A zip access to the contents of the transit bag is from the rear of the car.

more extensive transport can be carried out with all models by a luggage rack – the exception of the BMW 135i Convertible – is available as an original BMW accessory and is to the rear of the car. The aluminium rack can accommodate two bicycles, two or two pairs of skis safely. It is by a patented quick locking with two retainers mounted in the fender and available exworks as an

The rear rack can be folded out of the way whether it is loaded or unloaded. means that the luggage in the boot can be conveniently and ergonomically or unloaded, without the rear having to be dismantled beforehand.

BMW for all engines: more driving and reduced consumptions. Brake regeneration.

All petrol and diesel which are available for the new BMW 1 Series represent dynamism, efficiency and culture in a typical BMW manner. were designed within the BMW development strategy and are therefore with a number of innovations to the fuel consumption and emissions. The to increase the efficiency are applied in specific combination and are in each a part of the standard equipment.

They are not confined to engine – reduction of friction, new combustion design, weight reduction, the fuel/air mixture using generation common rail VALVETRONIC or High Precision precise control of combustion and air – but also the surroundings of the power

Intelligent energy management brake energy regeneration.

energy regeneration is one of the efficiency measures with which BMW 1 Series Convertible is equipped. It by intelligent energy management in the that the production of power for the network is concentrated on the overrun and phases. During acceleration the is generally disengaged.

On the road means more power for BMW sheer driving pleasure.

The of this intelligent energy can be compared to an energy storage station, where low cost is stored at night in reservoirs at a altitude and retrieved during the day to with peak loads. Now this principle to brake regeneration in the new BMW 1 Series Convertible, can be stored in the battery under conditions requiring only a low of energy, then feeding energy into the car on-board whenever required.

To maximise the life of the battery and set off the higher of energy, the BMW system of intelligent management operating in conjunction new AGM battery technology introduces cycles. This means higher voltage pulses are to the battery after a certain and discharging phase in order to appropriate phases of regeneration.

Start Stop function idle speed running

On manual gearbox models the new four cylinder power BMW’s Auto Start function provides greater above all in urban traffic by switching off the engine when it is not When the car stops at the traffic for example, the fuel consumption is to zero. As soon as the driver to neutral and takes his foot off the the engine electronics switches off the automatically, without a sound.

To the engine, all the driver has to do is depress the pedal. The engine restarts without requiring any further on the part of the driver.

Gear point indicator makes consumption driving easier.

New incorporated in the new BMW 1 Series Convertible ideal conditions for the most use of fuel also while All manual shift models are as standard with a gear point indicator, which is an arrow symbol in the instrument which indicates to the driver the point in time to change Based on the driving situation, the electronics selects the ideal in time to change gear in the of fuel economy.

Optimised using active air flap

Depending on the model, the new BMW 1 Series has additional features which, any action by the driver, reduce consumption.

Active control of the air in the radiator grille is among for example. As long as the engine needs minimum cooling, the remain closed, which the aerodynamics and further reduces consumption.

Electric power and needs orientated control of units.

A further improvement in is that a number of ancillary only operate on demand, in to save energy. The electronic steering (EPS) included in all other than the BMW 135i only uses energy steering assistance is really this is exclusively when the wheel is being actively by the driver. Hence, energy is reduced to zero when straight ahead or around bends without any additional of the steering wheel.

The new electronic pump does not operate as a of engine speed but is temperature and operates only when it is needed. This also to increased engine efficiency, only about 200 Watt, a tenth of the drive energy for a conventional pump, which then also have to be developed. The air conditioning compressor drive means that the air conditioning unit is switched off if the air conditioning is switched off; again reduces the compressor’s momentum to a minimum.

BMW 135i most powerful straight six BMW.

The most sporting of the new model range is the BMW 135i which is powered by the most performance straight six cylinder in the BMW engine programme. The combination of Turbo and High Precision means that the all-aluminium unit has the worldwide unique in this engine category. output 225 kW/306 hp from cc at 5,800 min–1 and maximum of 400 Nm is maintained throughout a very range of engine speeds 1,300 und 5,000 min–1.

An spontaneous performance, exhilarating not only from standing and reserves of power define the experience which the open two provides in this engine 5.6 seconds are enough for the BMW 135i to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph. Its top is limited to 250 kmph/155 mph by the engine

This puts the top model in the of top calibre sports cars, it also stands out for its favourable efficiency.

The unsurpassed economies of performance class are not only to by the efficiency promoting brake regeneration and change point but also the charger principle Turbo as well as the petrol injection High Precision The BMW 135i Convertible engine is the and only available straight six petrol with Twin charge engine in this segment.

Using the Twin technology to improve performance and has proved to be a particularly efficient to increasing cubic capacity the considerable increased weight The design principle of these two chargers, each supplying cylinders with compressed produces an unsurpassed spontaneity accelerating.

The typical turbo in the traditional type of turbo – the time lapse until the cuts in with its performance effect – no longer exists. In the engine has typical BMW straight six high revving properties. It is to a much larger naturally engine in its performance characteristic, the equipped with an all aluminium is however much less.

The Precision Injection has the key function in the for the best possible efficient use of The second generation petrol injection operates with which are located in the cylinder immediately next to the spark and feed the fuel into the chambers at a pressure of 200 bar. form of construction ensures an precise dosing of the fuel. The makes up to 200 injections per second

The BMW 135i Convertible power shows a clear fuel advantage compared to a turbo with suction pipe

In addition to the outstanding engine the BMW 135i Convertible has a number of standard special features, mark its unique drive Besides the differentiation in the interior as a of the modified M Aerodynamics Package is the M Sports Suspension, an individual of the drive stability control as DSC (Dynamic Stability Control), an controlled locking function for the a model specific direct map for the Servotronic steering support and a reaction accelerator control

BMW 125i Convertible: naturally engine alternative in the six cylinder

The new BMW 125i Convertible also has a six cylinder at work under the hood. The aspirated power mobilises a performance of 160 kW/218 hp at min–1 and a maximum torque of 270 Nm at 2, 500 from a capacity of 2,996 cc. motorisation makes it possible for the BMW Convertible to have a top speed of 238 mph.

The 100 kmph mark standing is reached in only 6.8 At a weight of only 161 kilogram the six unit provides a contribution to axle load distribution on the BMW Convertible which is supportive of an driving style. The engine is light because of its crankcase consists of a magnesium jacket and an insert.

In addition the cylinder cover as well as the bedplate is in light magnesium. The light camshafts which were developed for this straight six contribute to the weight optimisation.

The variable valve control, and the on-demand operating electric pump are further measures to the efficiency level. This variant also has brake regeneration as a feature for particularly energy management in the vehicle. the competition in its performance class the BMW Convertible achieves in acceleration as as in fuel consumption the best on both counts in the segment.

At an fuel consumption of 8.1 litres per 100 it offers the sovereignty of the six cylinder in economic form.

BMW 120i and BMW 118i Convertible: four in top form.

The engine developers went for High Precision for the new BMW 1 Series Convertible four petrol units. The light drive train with cc capacity goes to the start two performance levels. Both employ the second generation of injection in lean operation, as it is This means that the injectors centrally located in the head fill the combustion in layers with injected at different concentrations.

A combustible mixture is only ever immediately next to the spark Immediately after ignition the surrounding lean mixture are consumed by the combustion. This means an optimum performance with decidedly less and in precisely dosed fuel is

Both engine variants aluminium crankcases. The biggest difference is the use of a shift suction in the higher performance version.

BMW 1 Series Convertible four petrol engine variants top marks in the relevant competition for acceleration capability and economy to comprehensive measures developed by BMW to efficiency. The four cylinder on the BMW 120i Convertible produces 125 hp at a torque of 6,700 min–1, at 4,250 min–1 it provides a torque of 210 Nm. This gives from nought to 100 kmph in 8.4 the top speed is 220 kmph/135 mph.

A of 105 kW/143 hp at 6,000 min–1 and a torque of 190 Nm at 4,250 min–1 give the second four engine the best qualification for driving performance. The BMW 118i has a top speed of 210 kmph/130 mph, to 100 kmph acceleration takes 9.3 seconds.

BMW 120d Convertible: filter standard.

The new BMW 120d four cylinder turbo develops 30 kW/177 hp at 4,000 from a displacement of 1,995 cc, its torque of 350 Nm lies between and 3,000 min–1. A top speed of 222 mph and an acceleration from nought to 100 in 8.1 seconds unites sporting performance impressive economy in the new BMW Convertible. In competitive comparison model is top ranking in its performance for acceleration and fuel consumption.

The BMW Convertible drive train is with an exhaust gas turbocharger thanks to its variable turbine ensures optimally tuned distribution at all load ranges. The fuel is introduced in a third common rail direct system by piezo injectors, work at a pressure of 1,800

In addition the BMW 120d Convertible has as a comprehensive range of efficiency measures among which are energy regeneration, Auto Stop function, shift indicator, and active air flap As representative of the new diesel engine the unit is also fitted as with a diesel particulate located close to the engine. ensures optimised emission and not only with regard to CO2

The performance characteristics and the sound in modern diesel units led to less experienced drivers or who lack familiarity – for example cars – hardly notice the to petrol engines. The new BMW 120d is therefore fitted with fuel filling protection, only permits the use of a diesel nozzle. The tank opening on vehicle has a locking catch is so constructed that it can only be by a standardised diesel pump nozzle.

Automatic gears Steptronic function.

As an alternative to a gear box all new BMW 1 Series Convertible variants can be combined with six automatic transmission as an option. The transmission reduces loss of and ensures even shorter and gear shift times special converter technology.

The engine connection furthers the character of the vehicle in the same way as the gear selection, whereby drive stages can be skipped for a down as fast as possible if the signals that he wants to particularly quickly by pressing the down hard.

Thanks to the function, the driver can also gears manually by using the lever on the central console or by toggles on the steering wheel. The toggles are standard on the BMW 135i with automatic transmission. are optional on the BMW 125i Convertible automatic gears.

Independently of the mode the automatic gears the BMW 1 Series Convertible that BMW sporting drive feeling. changing to manual selection on the BMW Convertible a particularly sporting of the gears is activated, this is support for dynamic acceleration The unusually short shift are clearly noticeable by the driver at gear change.

Correspondingly spontaneous movements on the counter dial are further of a particularly spirited acceleration

Intricately designed suspension electric power steering EPS and steering as option.

The new 1 Series is a BMW through and through. This the motive power being to the road by the rear wheels.

The axle is a five arm construction the requirements of the particularly powerful and torque engines. The rear differential emanates from new axle gears presented the introduction of the 1 Series. Optimised for running, featuring double ball bearings for the first the final drive runs at an lower operating temperature, the functionality and service life.

The axle is built to a level of quite unique in the vehicle The double joint spring tiebar axle with its bar is made largely of aluminium, an optimum combination of superior and low weight in the components. The front makes a large contribution to the and sporting character of the new BMW 1 Series

A new development is also represented by power steering (EPS) integrated Servotronic function for steering assistance. EPS, as a offers even greater precision and enhanced comfort and fuel consumption at the same In contrast to the conventional mechanical/hydraulic the steering assistance is operated by an motor operating only on

As an option the BMW 1 Series Convertible can be with the world’s only steering, which provides precision and steering comfort.

A superposition gear is responsible for the steering movement. The steering turn made by the driver is at different increments, depending on the and with the aid of an electric motor via a gear.

Drive dynamics for perfect vehicle control.

for the new BMW 1 Series Convertible besides anti-blocking brakes (ABS) for is also the Dynamic Stability (DSC). It applies the brakes on individual wheels in particularly situations and reduces engine in order to prevent the rear end of the car breaking away (over or the car pushing forward over the wheels (under steer). DSC is matched to the drive dynamic of the BMW 1 Series Convertible.

By networking the optional active steering the DSC can prevent the vehicle breaking on surfaces with a varying coefficient using specific by steering with the appropriate – for example dry asphalt on the left, on the wet asphalt (modal split).

A of the DSC is the Automatic Stability Control which prevents drive from spinning when away, the Cornering Brake (CBC), also fitted as stabilises the car whenever necessary applying the brakes while and Dynamic Traction Control which is an optimum drive mode which can be switched in.

It more slip on the drive compared to the basic setting, means starting away in deep snow with the only spinning slightly. which the DTC mode allows a more intensive lateral up to controlled corner drift. The new BMW 1 Convertible DTC system can be completely by pressing a button.

Electronic differential locking function BMW 135i Convertible traction.

To the best possible accelerative with superior engine and powerful torque, the new BMW 135i special improvements for enhanced have been developed. The focus is on promoting a sporting and style of motoring, when out of bends or hairpins for example.

To enhanced traction in the DSC off mode, is with DSC completely shut an electronically controlled differential slows down a spinning wheel in a tight bend. in turn enhances the vehicle’s without having a negative on its steering behaviour.

The BMW 120i the BMW 118i Convertible and the BMW 120d are all equipped with 16 inch both six cylinder variants 17 inch alloy wheels as In addition the BMW 135i Convertible has the M suspension and a high perfor-mance system as standard consisting of 6 fixed callipers on the front and 2 plunger fixed calliper on the rear axle, each in exclusive grey with BMW in letters.
