The latest Euro NCAP results are in and the 2011 F20 1-series has received the full 5-star rating.
The new 1 series even scored well enough to achieve the maximum safety rating under a stricter NCAP criteria being introduced next year. For the 2012 tests, cars will be required to score at least 60% (up from current 40%) in the pedestrian protection category to be awarded a full 5 stars.
We’ve posted the full results below. Needless to say, the new 1 series continues BMWs recent history of producing some of the safest cars available.
Autocar has now posted their first drive review of the F20 1-series 120d hatchback. Overall it’s a bit of a mixed review. See inside for what we mean.

The Brainstormclub and Eyetrip are responsible for production.

This new video courtesy of BMW UK showcase the interior of the F20 1-series hatchbacks and closes in on some external details. Seen clearly is the beautiful new dash with its large 6.5 inch display screen. Also of note is a look at the ambient lighting located on the F20’s B-pillar (at 30 seconds).
The video also features some close looks at the exterior as well. The frontal shots show the sculpting in the front fascia which seem to be easily lost in photos, but which improves upon the often criticized “empty” space between the headlights and kidney grilles on the F20.
