China-exclusive BMW 1 Series saloon spied in Germany

China-exclusive BMW 1 Series saloon spied in Germany

Sources have stated that the sighting of a BMW 1 Series saloon in Munich has raised questions about whether the smallest saloon from the BMW stable is being considered for Europe.

The dilemma is born out of the fact that the BMW 1 Series saloon was originally built exclusively for the Chinese market as a competitor to the likes of Mercedes-BenzCLA. It recently debuted at the Guangzhou Auto Show in November 2016. Furthermore, only the badges of the otherwise undisguised car were camouflaged, and reports identify the model to be a 120i.

Could BMW be analysing if this saloon for Europe despite initially denying it? It’s obvious that the brand may be checking out if the car’s dimensions will actually get serve the automotive requirements of a European user. While the 1 Series saloon is underpinned by the UKL architecture which allows the car to have front-wheel drive capability, a majority of the engines and transmissions have been borrowed from the current Mini line-up. 

Stay tuned to CarWale to know if the 1 Series saloon deviates from the Chinese mainland, and makes way for other countries.
