2012 BMW 120d Urban Line

Still the only rear-wheel-driven car in its class, the 2012 BMW 1 Series builds on the strengths of its predecessor, which has already sold more than one million units worldwide. With its outstanding handling and design, innovative technology and premium image, the new BMW 1 Series has consolidated its position as a pioneering individualist in the competitive five-door segment. The BMW Urban Line includes specific cloth/leather seats, a leather sports steering wheel, contemporary acrylic glass interior trim, 16-inch V-spoke alloy wheels or optional 17-inch high-gloss white wheels, white kidney bars on the front and white rear bumper trim.

2012 1 Series Urban Line Features Premium Accessories as Standard

(continued from above)

The design of the new generation BMW 1 Series is a powerful expression of the latest technological advances. The model's fresh, youthful image has been stylishly updated, with precision-moulded body surfaces and a modern, functional interior both underlining its premium status. Another innovation is the BMW Sport Line and BMW Urban Line, two ranges of interior and exterior design features and equipment that provide exclusive personalization opportunities.

All engines in the 2012 BMW 1 Series are four-cylinder models using BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel models have been radically redesigned, featuring variable turbine geometry and common-rail direct fuel injection. The 2012 BMW 116d (116 hp), the 2012 BMW 118d (143 hp) and the 2012 BMW 120d (184 hp) have further consolidated the BMW 1 Series' record of superior fuel efficiency in the compact segment.

The 2012 BMW 1 Series is the first and only car in its class to be optionally available with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Like its predecessor, it also incorporates the extremely wide-ranging BMW EfficientDynamics technology package as standard. This includes the Automatic Start/Stop function, available with both the manual and automatic transmissions, and ECO PRO mode, activated using the driving experience switch (included as standard), for even better environmental performance.

2012 1 Series' Exterior Design

The front of the car is dominated by the large BMW kidney-shaped radiator grille, boldly shaped headlight units and three-section air intake. The grille is tilted forwards, adding emphasis to the challenging stance of this most sporty of compact models, while the surrounding areas catch the light and create a strong sense of three-dimensionality, with four contour lines on the bonnet forming a V that points towards the grille.

From the side, the proportions of the new BMW 1 Series are even more strikingly apparent. The slightly sloping roof line, sporty, angled rear windscreen and flat side windows give the car a coupé-like feel, while the Hofmeister kink - the low forward bend at the back end of the side windows - extends well into the C-pillar, making the door aperture wider and facilitating entry to and exit from the rear seats.

The wide-set wheel arches reinforce the broad, powerful impression created by the back of the new BMW 1 Series. The wide-opening, slightly concave tailgate is opened by pressing the top section of the BMW emblem that sits at its center, and the rear lights are also set well apart, creating a strong horizontal emphasis that is heightened by their deep surrounds.

There are optional xenon headlights, and the rear lights consist of L-shaped banks of LEDs. An additional brake light is set into the roof spoiler. The outline of the rear apron echoes that of the front bumper, while the V-shaped emblem surround leads the eye towards the road surface, emphasizing the new BMW 1 Series' stable roadholding.
