The BMW 1 Series was first introduced to the market in 2004 as a five-door hatchback and is the only rear-wheel driven car in its class.

It replaced the BMW 3 Series Compact range and is currently the smallest and one of the most affordable vehicle in all series of BMW range.

Unlike its predecessor, the BMW 1 Series are built on its own platform (E87); however, the 1 Series shares many components with the E90 3 Series. Shared parts included are MacPherson struts in the front of the car and a trapezoidal-link rear axle. BMW has stated that the BMW 1 Series shares over 60% of components with the current E90 BMW 3 Series.
