The Review

Mid-Term Review (1-3 years) Hatchbacks BMW 1 Series 1 Series Hatchback 3dr (E81) - (2007) 118i (143 Hp) Steptronic

This is a great car and I would definitely buy again, hands down.


Summary

I really love my car. It’s stylish and comfortable. The boot is a good size. I like the size and thickness of the steering wheel. I’m extremely fond of how responsive the steering is. The dashboard has the feel of a luxury car. There is a good space in the front of the car between the driver and passenger. The pedals are a good size. The car picks up speed with ease feels like a strong reliable car.

Practicality and Comfort

As previously mentioned, the car is extremely comfortable. It is very roomy on the inside. The back seats 2, so each person would have adequate room. It would be better if there were also windows in the back. The boot is a very good size. It is an extremely practical and comfortable car.

My car is always a pleasure to drive. It looks great and the handling is amazing. Definitely one of my favourite things about the car. The car is very sturdy and reliable.

Performance and Handling

The car handles extremely well, I always feel in control when driving. It doesn’t handle well in snow at all as it is rear wheel drive. It’s easy to move the vehicle in 1st, the car moves smoothly.

Would I recommend it? YES

I would definitely recommend this car and would look into buying a newer model when I upgrade my car.
