What is the BMW 1 Series M Sport Shadow Edition?

The BMW 1 Series was available in M Sport Shadow Edition trim between 2017 and 2019. An elegant, top-spec iteration of the popular hatchback, it brings a darker edge to the athletic M Sport trim. This appeals not only to those seeking a dynamic and responsive drive but also to those who want their vehicle to stand out. The M Sport Shadow Edition is available in the standard five-door hatchback body style, which makes it a practical choice for families too.

The BMW 1 Series M Sport Shadow Edition brings unique design features, creating a truly striking aesthetic. The front end boasts dark front headlights and a high-gloss black kidney grille, while the rear features smoked taillights and a dark chrome exhaust pipe. This variant of the 1 Series finds competition in the Audi A3 S-Line and Mercedes-Benz A-Class AMG-Line Night Edition.

BMW 1 Series M Sport Shadow Edition history

The BMW 1 Series entered one of the UK’s most competitive segments in 2004. Replacing the 3 Series Compact, it set itself apart from the competition with a rear-wheel drivetrain, which offered a more exciting drive. This first-generation model was available in two-door coupé, convertible and five-door hatchback body styles. The 1 Series was instantly popular and when the Mk2 edition was launched in 2011, it built upon the vehicle’s initial success. This time, however, the model was only available in three and five-door hatchback variations.

It was towards the end of the Mk2 1 Series’ lifespan – in July 2017 – that the M Sport Shadow Edition was introduced. This version built upon the premium quality and sporty nature of the M Sport grade, becoming the top-of-the-range trim.

Standout features include Jet Black or bi-colour 18-inch M alloy wheels and an M Sport braking system upgrade. Tweaks to the steering also make this edition’s handling lighter and more responsive. Inside is a refined dashboard, sporting an ergonomic design that enhances the premium feel of the interior. There’s also a Harmon/Kardon sound system as standard.

The M Sport Shadow Edition could be specified with any of the 1 Series’ petrol or diesel engines. These include the 118i petrol, a 1.5-litre option which produces 134bhp and accelerates from 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds. The entry-level 116d diesel is a 1.5-litre unit with an output of 114bhp. This takes you from 0-62mph in 10.1 seconds.

Other diesel engine choices include the 118d and 120d, both of which have a 2.0-litre unit producing 141bhp and 188bhp respectively. All engines come with either six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.

Where does the BMW 1 Series M Sport Shadow Edition sit in the range?

The BMW 1 Series M Sport Shadow Edition sits at the top of the second-generation hatchback range between 2017 and 2019. Thanks to its distinctive styling elements, strong engine options and iconic M badging, it remains a highly attractive choice for buyers who want to turn heads out on the road.

What features does the BMW 1 Series M Sport Shadow Edition have?

The darkened exterior aesthetics of the BMW 1 Series M Sport Shadow Edition are key to its appeal. Dark headlights, high-gloss black detailing and sun protection glass offer curb appeal from all angles. The look is enhanced with 18-inch alloy wheels and a choice of paint colours, including the exclusive Sunset Orange hue.

The interior has a range of premium features to enhance your drive. The ambient lighting can be switched between BMW Classic Orange and Cold White LED, enabling you to set the mood for every journey. The model also features air conditioning, sports seats, a 6.5-inch navigation system and a Harmon/Kardon sound system, which delivers crystal-clear audio quality. Other technology includes cruise control, traction control, lane departure warning and rear parking sensors.
