The drive-train layout, using a longitudinally mounted in-line engine at the front and rear-wheel drive, is unique in the compact segment. This improves the handling of new BMW 1-Series, and can also be reflected in its styling, with its distinctive BMW proportions: extended bonnet, wide wheelbase and a set-back passenger cell. The new BMW 1-Series is the embodiment of responsiveness and innovative elegance within a compact vehicle, using a youthful, lively style and high-quality capabilities adding to the excitement.
Compared with its predecessor, the new BMW 1-Series is really a auto which has done some developing up, and that is certainly reflected in its larger dimensions. It truly is now 8.5 centimetres longer and 1.7 centimetres wider. Even so, the height has remained unchanged, and the outcome is usually a more sophisticated, elongated profile. Seen from the front and rear views, the powerful stance of this compact model immediately catches the eye.
The front: striking looks with bold curves.
