Staff Review Edmunds.com 7.8 out of 10 2013 BMW 1 Series Coupe

It’s not the 1 Series M, but we’ll take it. The 2013 BMW 135is ratchets up the raw performance of the very capable 1 Series.

There’s still a lot to like with thee 1-Series, assuming you can live with the limited interior room. Its handling is quite good, and it nicely balances cornering ability with ride comfort.

I’ll stand behind my choice of the 135i over an M3. The 135i is all the sporting car this probably-sillier-than-most scofflaw needs. It costs half as much, is easier to live with and is, as far as I am concerned, the best car BMW makes.

The good news is that the switch from twin- to single-turbo six hasn’t affected the 135i’s character noticeably.Those who would have chosen the automatic last year will be happy with the dual-clutch upgrade.

The 2011 BMW 135i should be bought first and foremost by those looking for arguably the most unfiltered BMW driving experience. At its base MSRP, the 135i’s performance is practically unchallenged.
