Selected derivatives of these models will now be available with the Mzansi Edition specification pack, bringing a sportier look and enhanced features at a more affordable price than if they were to be optioned individually.
What you get
BMW has equipped its new 1 Series Mzansi Editions with a raft of stylish upgrades over the standard models, including a high-gloss black grille and surrounding frames, front spoiler, side sills, and rear spoiler.
M Carbon mirror caps, red M Sport brakes, light-alloy wheels, and black chrome tailpipes add more sporty flair – and on the 128ti specification, standard fitment also includes a carbon rear diffuser.
Inside the cabin, upgrades comprise Sports seats with Trigon/Sensatec upholstery, black M seat belts, a glass sliding roof, the BMW Live Cockpit Professional infotainment system, and an upgraded stereo.
