The BMW 1-series is a Unicorn

In this week's show, Ariff and Daniel mull over the automotive points in the Budget 2022 - in particular, the government's big plans to make electric cars (essentially) tax free. After that, they discuss several new cars such as the space-aged Hyundai Staria Premium, the localisation of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and GLA-Class, the debut of the 7th Generation SL-Class, and Toyota's new electric car - the bZ4x

Finally, Ariff shares his notes on the 2012-2019 BMW 1-series in the Used Car Buying Guide. As the only rear drive hatchback in its class, it's a unique car that offers stable and agile handling with sports car-like thrills in a small and relatively economical package.
