Third best Alfa Romeo Mito

It seems no one regrets buying a 1 Series Coupé. Not a single reader on whatcar.com gave the car less than four stars overall, and the vast majority dished out a full five-star verdict.

Almost every review raved about how brilliant the Coupé is to drive: ‘The last car I had fun driving was my old Mazda MX-5 – but the 1 Series Coupé is built for driving pleasure,’ said owner Jason Tang. ‘Throw it at a winding road and you’ll grin the entire way!’ said Kiran Naidu. ‘It puts a smile on my face every time I get behind the wheel’, said Stephen Hayward.

Complaints were few and far between, but a few reader reviews criticised the
limited rear head- and legroom.

Jason said: ‘My only qualm is the lack of space in the back – if BMW lengthened the car by 30mm, it would be perfect.’
