BMW 1-Series Sedan [render]
The designer – Theophilus Chin has created two nice render images of BMW 1-Series Sedan, which is only a rumor for now. The entry-level BMW is now offered only in 3- and 5-door hatchback configurations, while the 2-Series offers coupe and convertible models.
Besides the possible 1-Series Sedan, there is another bothering news – the model will come with front wheel drive as the recently announce 2-Series Active Tourer and the 2nd generation X1.
"The NES (New Entry-Level Sedan) is integral to our growth plans," commented unknown source.
"It will be an important pillar in the future 1-series lineup, particularly in the U.S. and China, where sales of small premium-brand four-door sedans are on the rise.", he added.
BMW 1-Sereis Sedan is going to compete versus CLA and Audi A3 Sedan. Probably, both of them will be slightly bigger than the BMW, but they are in a same segment of FWD small saloons.
The engine range of the future 1-Series Sedan will be carried over – three- and four-cylinder direct-injection (with or without turbocharger) petrol and common-rail diesel units. A hybrid version will probably emerge, too because of the demanding on the market.
