BMW has introduced the 2012 1-Series M-Sport, which offers a number of modifications for the hatchback.

The exterior M Package includes restyled bumpers and side skirts. There is also a set of nice 18" Star-spoke light alloy wheels, a high-gloss shadowline restyled front kidney grille. The stance is further improved by lowering the ride with 10mm. All these enhancements give the new 1-Series better presence on the road and individual style.

The interior boasts an Anthracite headlining, Aluminum Hexagon interior trim, Estoril Blue styling accents and ///M badge door sills. There are also front sport seats finished in black cloth and Alcantara. The steering wheel is also a new one as well as the short-shift gear lever.

However, if you aren't please with the M-Sport package, you can complete it with the Sport Plus Edition pack adding Dark Line rear lights and Black mirror casings, Boston leature upholstery lines and USB/ Bluetooth connectivity.

2012 BMW 1-Series M-Sport is priced at £22 510 for the 116i model and the prices go up to £27 820 for the 125d. The alternative 125i M Sport is priced from £26 030.
