Fans of the BMW 1 Series will be excited to find out that BMW will be launching the next generation of the 1 Series at the Frankfurt Motor Show hosted in September next year. Because that the present BMW 1 Series has been on the market for quite a long time, BMW thought it would be better to unveil the next step in the model’s evolution.
Changes to the BMW 1 Series will be made not only physically, with increased dimensions to allow more room for the passengers in the back, new engines featuring three-cylinder and four-cylinder versions (the 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine with power ranging from 75 hp to 185 hp and the 1-5 litre twin turbo diesel engine with power ranging from 95 hp to 177 hp). A new driving platform using rear-wheel drive will be installed (the L7).
The new BMW 1 Series will have the same three-door and five-door versions and the convertible and coupe ones to which a family version will be added and according to rumors it will be a Gran Turismo.
