A render for the new BMW 1-Series 2019August 31, 2018
It is already known that the German car in its new version will receive a revised look, another platform, and a significantly expanded list of equipment. So far there is no data on the prices for the car.
The current generation of compact 3-and 5-door hatchbacks BMW 1-Series, which have an in-factory index F20 and F21, is sold from 2011. Agree that the German engineers have long been time to introduce the next generation of the model. And so, as our friends tell our insiders, the long-awaited novelty should appear already this year.
The recently published render for the new 5-door hatchback 1-Series gives us an idea of how the novelty can look. We’ll start, perhaps, with a radiator grrille, it got a proprietary form for all models of the German automaker. According to the “spy” photos that we received during the last month, the LED headlights will receive a new 6-carbon form.
On that computer visualization of the car, which was published a few hours ago by foreign media, the version with the “package” of the M Sport Package is shown – rather large air intakes speak about it.
The side mirrors were decorated with artificial carbon fiber. The distance between the front wheel arches and the front edge of the door is now shorter than before. Through the door handles there is a convex body line, and the roof line gently “falls” on the back of the car. As before, the rear B-pillar is painted black.
From a technical point of view, the German novelty will change quite strongly. First of all, the rear-wheel drive will be replaced by a drive to the front wheels. The new BMW 1-Series will be built on the UKL platform. It is expected that the wheelbase will be 2,670 mm. As for the engines, it is likely that the car will receive only 3 and 4-cylinder power units. The most powerful gasoline engine will receive 258 hp. power. Also, in due course should appear and a hybrid version of the German compact car.
Not long ago, there were official photos of the BMW 8-Series convertible.
