2012 BMW 1 Series M Sport Package First Details

On the heels of the official presentation of the new generation 1 Series, German manufacturer BMW released this week the first information regarding the M Sport Package that will take the appearance of the model to new extremes.

Meant to enhance the visual appearance of the regular 1 Series, the M Sport Package will include revised front and rear bumper, featuring larger air intakes, M-designed alloy wheels, sport seats and specially designed door panels, aluminum trim on the dashboard and door-sills and, of course, sports steering wheel, handbrake and gear levers, and pedals.

As a touch of unique M treatment, the chassis setup has been modified for a bit of sportiness, but the exact details of the modifications brought to the model are expected to be released in the coming days, so keep an eye out for the additional information regarding the M Sport Package for the newcomer.

The M Sport Package will be available throughout the 1 Series range, meaning that the customers will have a wide range of engines to choose from: 116i (1.6-liter 136 hp), 118i (1.6-liter 170 hp), and the three versions of the 2.0l diesel, with outputs of 116 hp, 143 hp and 184 hp. All engines can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The engines available for the model, especially the newly designed 1.6l one, will help BMW bring down the consumption levels of its new 1 Series. According to the manufacturer, the expected fuel economy of the model is 4.3 and 5.8 liters per 100 kilometers (40.6 and 54.7 mpg).
