The BMW 125i sits high in the 1 Series line-up, above the 118i, 118d and 120i, but under the range-topping M140i, with a list price of $49,990.

The M Sport Package comes standard on the 125i and adds 18-inch light-alloy wheels and a tough body kit, the M sport steering wheel and aluminium trim to the interior. That’s along with regular standard features such as 8.8-inch screen with sat nav, DVD player, reversing camera, six-speaker stereo plus digital radio, Alcantara seats, front and rear parking sensors, LED fog lights, dual-zone climate control, interior lights package, and smart phone connectivity with voice control.

The 125i is getting into performance territory with its 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four making 165kW/310Nm. Transmission is a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic.

The 125i’s official fuel consumption is also 5.9L/100km.

A maximum five-star ANCAP rating awarded in 2011 and coming standard is AEB (city) with pedestrian detection and lane departure warning.
