BMW seems to be littering the streets with prototype recently as another upcoming model has been spotted on public roads, just days after the 2 Series Convertible was scooped. This time the 1 Series Sedan came out to play, for the first time.
The long-rumored 1 Series Sedan is set to take on the Audi A3 Sedan and Mercedes CLA. It will utilise the brand’s versatile front-wheel-drive UKL platform that also underpins the 2 Series Active Tourer and MINI Cooper.
The entry-level sedan is expected to share the same four-cylinder engine line-up as the larger 3 Series. This includes the 2.0-litre turbo four with 135kW and 270Nm and its high output version rated at 170kW and 350Nm. The 2.0-litre turbodiesel developing 110kW and 330Nm will also find its way under the bonnet, so does the 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol with 100kW and 200Nm.
The 1 Series Sedan is expected to debut in 2015.
