You'll Like This Car If...
If you like your driving served "straight up," the 2013 BMW 1 Series is your machine: Front engine, rear-wheel drive, good power and poised handling, all tuned and developed on the assumption you want your car to feel and sound and move just so.
You May Not Like This Car If...
The 1 Series, in either Coupe or Convertible guise, may be simple in specifications but a car like this is still costly to engineer and manufacture. If "driving dynamics" doesn't mean too much to you, you'll probably find a better transportation value in an Acura, Audi or VW.
What's New for 2013
A new higher-performance model joins the BMW 1 Series line for 2013, the 135is. It uses a version of the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6-cylinder engine that also powers the 135i, but tuned for a power increase from 300 horsepower to 320.
Based on 142 ratings for the 2008 - 2013 models.

Big Engine + Small Car = Ear-to-Ear Smiles!!!
With an impressive power-to-weight ratio - the 128i is the far more reliable, "second cousin" to the stout 135i. However, in comparison,...
