A feeling of lightness spreads the moment you enter: the interior with its many and varied compartments boasts generous proportions, the instrument panel is particularly characterised and geared towards the driver’s needs. Comfort in its most beautiful form.
BMW designers talk of the layering system when explaining the styling concept for the interior of the BMW 1 Series. Drivers tend to talk of the lightness of the space when they describe the effect. Components such as the instrument panel or decorative trim strips blend to form a modern overall impression, providing a formal framework for the controls. Momentum and dynamics dominate the space. Freedom in design that is only made possible because the cockpit of a BMW consistently follows a principle of driver orientation in terms of functionality and operating comfort.
Each ergonomic challenge has been solved intelligently and with care. The best example? The Control Display, available on request for models equipped with the Professional radio and higher models. Following the BMW 6 Series, the BMW 1 Series is now the second range of models to feature a free-standing Control display, located in the middle above the centre console, thus retaining the impression of high quality created by the flat screen. One detail in an overall concept that derives its modern and innovative character from the inspired combination of creative visions with decades of experience.
