First unveiled in July 2016, the BMW 1 Series sedan has been spotted in Spain. Covered in heavy camouflage and featuring Mini Cooper-style alloy wheel design, this all-new entry-level luxury sedan will be sold only in China for now.
The 1 Series sedan is underpinned by the UKL1 platform that forms base for all the new Minis and the X1 crossover. Interestingly, what this means is that the 1 Series sedan will have front-wheel drive configuration and a range of three- and four-cylinder petrol engines.
BMW first previewed it via the Compact Sedan Concept shown at the Guangzhou Auto Show last year. Meanwhile, the development and testing of the car was in full swing at the BMW headquarters with the involvement of Chinese engineers.
The 1 Series sedan will be built under the BMW and BMW Brilliance Automotive joint venture in China. Sadly, BMW currently has no plans to sell it in India or even Europe for that matter.
