A BMW 1 Series rental is a great rental choice for travelers who want to find a balance between economy and class for their trip to Europe. Featuring a well-made interior, comparably powerful engine, and economical mileage, the 1 Series is sure to impress. The 1 Series seats 5 adults comfortably, though for longer trips, the back seat is best suited for two passengers. Families with small children are perfectly suited to the BMW 1 Series. The 360-liter trunk area--enough space for 3 full-size suitcases--is about average for cars of this class, but with the rear seats folded down, the storage space increases to 1,200 liters, more than triple the original amount. The 1 Series is extremely economical in terms of mileage, getting between 43 and 63 miles to the gallon, so travelers on a budget would do well to rent this car. With the money you save, you can do more on your trip to London or Venice. The 1 Series is a highly practical car that doesn't skimp on quality.

The BMW 1 Series' cabin space is slightly better than most cars in the compact class. Front seat passengers have plenty of headroom and legroom, but passengers in the back will have a little less room. Still, the 1 Series beats out the Mercedes A-Class in terms of passenger space, so travelers should consider that when renting. The downside to sitting in the middle-back seat is the transmission tunnel that runs the length of the car, taking away most of the legroom for that passenger. Overall, the 1 Series is a good fit for groups of 5 and families with children.
The BMW 1 Series has a luggage capacity similar to most cars in its class. With 360 liters of space in the trunk area, the 1 Series can haul up to 3 large suitcases and still have room for smaller items and baggage. Travelers that need more storage can fold the rear seats down and increase the space to 1,200 liters, tripling the original capacity. The seats fold at a 60/40 split, so passengers can still use the rear seat while longer items are being stored. The hatchback design makes the 1 Series easy to load and unload, saving travelers the hassle of bending at awkward angles to situate their luggage.
