Next BMW 1 Series spied

Next BMW 1 Series spied

We reported spotting the next BMW 1 Series last month, and time around, we’ve caught the brand testing their 1 Series once again, but the test car seems to be different.

Unlike the last prototype, this one is believed to be a more performance-oriented version. And that’s because it has bright blue brake callipers for the front wheels, a twin exhaust setup at the rear and the more obvious roof spoiler. It is possible that the camouflage around the lower front bumper is actually masking a large air dam. Sources add that the biggest differentiator between the current and the next generation 1 Series is the UKL platform that will underpin the new car. And that forthcoming engines will be able to hook the car up with a front-wheel-drive setup. 

The car you see in the pictures does not show the true design as you can see dummy body panels overlapping the real body using rivets. However, what’s for sure is that the next generation 1 Series will be a significant departure from the current car, both in terms of design and mechanical updates. It certainly looks larger than the outgoing model, and this undoubtedly points to more cabin space.

Sources report that the next 1 Series may see the light of the day sometime in the last quarter of 2018. Stay tuned.
