2012 1 Series

BMW has taken the 1 Series to the drawing boards and back to give us the re-designed and re-engineered 2012 model. The 1 Series is in its 2nd generation and this new-release 5 door has been designed to make up for the lack of legroom and boot space of its predecessor. Five engines have been planned for the 1 Series, namely 118i, 116i, 120d, 118d and 116d. Only time will tell what engines will hit middle eastern shores.

Swept-back design

BMW is the only company to offer a rear wheel drive platform in this segment, which is a big plus for handling and the optional 8 speed automatic gearbox is the first of its kind in the premium compact market.

Expect variants such as the 3 door hatchback, the coupe and the 2 door convertible to follow.
