2018 BMW 1 Series refreshed with new interior and more technology

The 2018 BMW 1 Series hatch has been updated with a refreshed interior and more technology, along with three new special editions – Edition Sport Line Shadow, Edition M Sport Shadow and M140i Edition Shadow – all with black headlight surrounds, black grille frame and tinted lights.

While the exterior makeover is limited the restyled front and rear bumpers, head and taillights and five fresh rim designs, the car’s interior receives the bulk of the makeover budget.

Owners will find a revised centre stack, restyled air vents, updated centre console with a roll cover for the cup holders, additional chrome trim and new high-gloss black accents. There are also new trim and upholstery options.
