For the Mexican market, the BMW 1 Series Sedan is available across two variants. The first is the 118iA Sedan, powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that does 136 hp and 220 Nm, paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to the front wheels.
The second engine choice is the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that forms the 120iA Sedan, capable of delivering 192 hp and 280 Nm. The 120iA Sedan features an 8-speed automatic.
Both the BMW 118iA Sedan and 120iA Sedan are available with the Sport Line package. Equipment such as LED headlights, split folding rear seats and a panoramic sunroof are only available on the more expensive 120iA Sedan.

Seeing that the BMW 1 Series Sedan has finally found its way out of China, could BMW offer the affordable sedan across more markets?
