Production ready BMW 1 Series sedan spotted in China

Production ready BMW 1 Series sedan spotted in China

A production ready version of the BMW 1 Series sedan has been spotted sans camouflage in China. The car was showcased as the BMW Compact sedan concept car at Guangzhou Auto Show in 2015 and was given a web unveil in July. This is a China only model at present but will be launched in other markets over the course of 2017.

Firstly, this is the first BMW sedan to be offered with FWD and is underpinned by their latest UKL-2 platform found in other models like the Mini range as well as BMW X1. The Chinese market will get the car in the 125i, 120i and 118i variants but for other markets across the globe also expect at least three diesels.

The design is typical BMW with signature elements like the grille, tail lamps as well as the headlamps which are full LED units. The cabin is also expected to be understated but will have all the luxuries of this segment like a free standing display, leather seats, climate control and electrically adjustable mirrors. It is 4.5 metres in length and has a wheelbase of 2.67 metres.

This is a BMW model that will come to India and be locally assembled at the German automaker’s plant outside Chennai. It will take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Volvo V40 and the Audi A3.
