Chronology
PredecessorBMW 1 Series (E87)
Interior

The BMW F20/F21 is the second generation of the BMW 1 Series range of subcompact executive hatchback cars. It was released in 2011 as the successor to the E81/E87. The body styles of the F20/F21 range are:

  • 3-door hatchback (model code F21)
  • 5-door hatchback (model code F20)

For the second generation of 1 Series, the coupe and convertible models were spun off to create the BMW 2 Series range.

The F20/F21 was initially powered by four-cylinder petrol, four-cylinder diesel and six-cylinder petrol engines. In 2015, three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines were added to the model range. All engines are turbocharged.

Unlike most hatchback competitors, the F20/F21 uses a longitudinally mounted engine and rear-wheel drive (instead of front-wheel drive) for most models. The F20/F21 is the first 1 Series to offer an optional all-wheel drive (called "xDrive" by BMW). It has seen use in the British Touring Car Championship,[3] winning the Constructors' Championship and Teams’ Championship.[4]

Suspension[edit]

Like its E87 predecessor, the F20/F21 uses aluminum multi-link suspension.[5]

Equipment[edit]

Available equipment includes satellite navigation with an 8.8 inch screen, iDrive, LED headlights and digital radio.[6][7][8]

The interior and exterior trim is either Sport Line, Urban Line or M-Sport Line. These trim packages differ by alloy wheels, kidney grille and other appearance-related features.[9][10]

In November 2015, the optional Automatic parking (called "Parking Assistant", where the car steers itself to parallel park) was upgraded.[11]

After introduction of LCI models in 2015, in same year, M135i was replaced with M140i, which adds a few HP's, also was available in Shadow Line Package which as standard gives Shadow/black side window trim, high-gloss black kidney grills, new designed black wheels and slighty tinted front and rear lights.[17]

4-door sedan (F52)[edit]

Sold only in China, the F52 is a 4-door sedan model in the 1 Series range.[25][26] Unlike the rest of the F20/F21 range, the F52 uses the BMW UKL platform, which is front-wheel drive and shared with the MINI, BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and X1.[27]

Model year changes[edit]

2015 facelift[edit]

2015 facelift

In March 2015, the facelift (LCI) models began production (for the 2016 model year).[40] The facelift was unveiled at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show 2015,[41] followed by Auto Shanghai 2015.[42]

Changes included:

2016[edit]

  • M135i model is replaced by the M140i, powered by the B58 engine[47][48][49]
  • 118i engine changed from 4-cylinder N13 engine to 3-cylinder BMW B38

Water injection prototype[edit]

At the 2015 BMW Group Innovation Days at Miramas proving grounds in southern France, BMW unveiled a prototype model using a water injection engine.[50]

The 3-cylinder B48 petrol engine uses a similar approach as the 6-cylinder engine fitted to the production F82 M4 GTS, by spraying a water mist into the intake manifold plenum chamber. The compression ratio is increased from 9.5:1 to 11.0:1, power and torque increased by 10 percent and the engine is compatible with low-octane (RON 95) fuel.[51] Some of the water required for the system is automatically collected from the condensation from the air-conditioning system.[52]

To date, no production version has been announced.[53]

Production[edit]

The F20/F21 is produced in Leipzig, Germany[54]; Regensburg, Germany[55][56]; Araquari, Brazil[57][58]; Shenyang, China (F52 sedan, by BMW Brilliance)[59][60]; and Chennai, India[61]

Complete knock-down (CKD) assembly of the F20/F21 is conducted in Kulim, Malaysia (by Inokom)[62][63] and Rayong, Thailand.[64][65][66]

Awards[edit]

In 2011, the F20/F21 1 Series won the Bild am Sonntag magazine Golden Steering Wheel award.[67]

In 2015, the M135i was the Sport Auto magazine winner of best compact car up to €50,000.[68][69]

In 2017, the M140 was the What Car? magazine winner of best hot hatch over £25,000.[70]
