2009 BMW 1 Series Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
2009 BMW 1 Series. It is common in the automotive world for cars to grow
bigger and more expensive with each iteration. After decades spent as the
brands least-expensive option, the venerable BMW 3 Series has moved up the
food chain enough to justify a vehicle beneath it. Enter the 1 Series, a
car that aims to deliver BMW luxury, performance and style in a smaller
After the modest success of the compact 318ti in the late 90s, BMW is
understandably cautious about stepping back into the world of small cars.
While BMW offers other 1 Series variants in Europe, including three- and
five-door wagon models, for now BMW has opted to bring only coupe and
convertible 1 Series to America. For more new car reviews, interviews and

Can Nissan Beat BMW? 370Z vs. 135i
SEE THE FULL COMPARISON:
What comes after Z?, we wondered when Nissan let the stage go black in 1996
and officially bid farewell to the Z-car at an event at the Petersen
Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Sales of the twin-turbo 300ZX had been declining as fast as
applications for library cards, so Nissan simply stopped selling the car in
the U.S. It made us wonder where the Z fit in Nissan's future.
The answer came in 2002, when the Nissan 350Z appeared, a serious sports
car that seemed to measure itself against the Corvette in both speed and
style. It brought people back to Nissan, but lots of the young enthusiasts
didn't know what an icon the Z had been for the company since its inception
With the 2009 Nissan 370Z, all that changes. As a Z should be, the 370Z is
a statement of purpose, not just another car on the showroom floor. With
this second-generation version of the revitalized Z, the car has moved on
from affordable performance to something that brings new descriptions into
play — not only like quick, fast, strong and powerful, but also gorgeous,
luxurious, nimble, graceful, delicate and smooth.
This is a car so good that it makes you wonder what kind of car it is: a
sports car, a sport coupe or a muscle-bound pony car? And that's where the
2008 BMW 135i comes in, a pocket-size BMW M3 with an affordable price tag

Often been called the spiritual successor to the famed BMW 2002. The
current 1-series represents BMW dynamics in the smallest and most pure

BMW 1 Series M Coupe review - Auto Express
Auto Express gets behind the wheel of BMW's latest M Power car, the 1
Series M Coupe. Powered by a 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine - a tweaked
version of the unit from the 135i, it is capable of 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds,
while top speed is electronically limited to 155mph.
Could this be the best M car since the original E30 M3? The new 1-Series M
Coupé is about as back-to-basics as BMW's performance models get these
days -- it's a simple formula of a powerful engine, a manual gearbox and
Factor in compact dimensions and you should have a spiritual successor to
one of the most-loved M cars in history. But is it any good on UK roads?
