Steven, a reader of BMWBLOG, sent in a set of photos showcasing his F21 BMW 1 Series Hatchback with the aggressive M Sport package. The Alpine White three-door hatch gets an M styling treatment.
The M Sports package aims to give the 1er Hatch a sportier look. Starting at the front of the vehicle, the front air dam has been widened to accommodate larger air intakes which feed the cooling systems. Moving to the side valence, a more sculptured prominent line is drawn above the rocker panels, adding the appearance of muscle and weight to the car. Finally, at the rear BMW has incorporated a more aggressive and sculpted rear bumper, rounding out the look.
BMW 1 Series Hatchback is only offered to European customers.
The F21 comes equipped with a choice of petrol and diesel engines featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology; BMW 114i as new entry-level version with 75 kW/102 hp. Also available at market launch are the following variants:
- BMW 116i (100 kW/136 hp), BMW 125i (160 kW/218 hp),
