BMW 1 Series

Mon, 06 Jun 2011

BMW has just revealed the all-new 1 Series. The German automaker's second generation B-segment contender has grown 83mm longer, 14mm wider and has had its wheelbase stretched 30mm over its predecessor.

Though the 1 Series is the smallest vehicle in the range, the new car retains proportions typical of BMW, with a long hood and wheelbase and a set-back cabin. The premium compact car's design is dominated by the large kidney-shaped grille at the front, which is tilted forwards and flanked by all-new headlamp units. In profile, the new car loses the sagging sill line – a visual identifier for the outgoing car. The revised rear end design also appears more generic.

Inside, typical BMW design features combined with innovative treatments and high quality materials give the cabin an 'organic look and feel', the company says. The cabin is driver focussed, with a central IP canted towards the driver. A freestanding, high-resolution 6.5 inch flatscreen monitor is also fitted should satellite navigation be specified. Interior space has also been enhanced to benefit rear seat passengers.
