    A lightly camouflaged M-Sport edition of the third-generation BMW 1 Series has been caught on camera lapping the Nurburgring
    Ahead of the official reveal of the new BMW 1 Series, the German firm has issued a fresh batch of teaser images. These latest shots give us our best look yet of the production model’s styling, as well as our first official glimpse at the 1 Series’ interior and digital gauge cluster.

    BMW’s third-generation Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf rival has received a substantial rethink over the outgoing model. Following in the footsteps of its competitors, the new 1 Series hatch has ditched its rear-wheel drive layout in favour of a new front-wheel drive platform, borrowed from the latest MINI.

    Despite this, the German brand has chosen to evolve the hatchback’s styling rather than give it a dramatic overhaul, so not to discourage loyal buyers. The 1 Series is one of BMW’s biggest sellers, so styling changes are modest and restrained for the new model, being limited to an updated face, revised rear end and a more cab-forward design.

    Another car that was first available for under 25’s and will be pushed out as well. Same way the A Class and the A3 have been removed for younger drivers.

    New BMW 1 Series revealed: specs, pricing and full details

    BMW’s new 2019 1 Series targets the VW Golf, going front-wheel drive for the very first time. On sale now priced from £24,430.
    This is the all-new BMW 1 Series, a thoroughly re-engineered version of the German manufacturer’s entry-level model. It’s on sale now priced from £24,430, with first customer deliveries due in September.

    For its third generation, the 1 Series has undergone its most dramatic transformation since the car was launched in 2004. Based on customer feedback, BMW has focused on increasing practicality, so the hatch is now larger than before, while the brand’s compact car line-up will see the three-door 2 Series Coupe morph into a five-door Gran Coupé.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the new 1 series at the moment. I like the new interior and it that was definitely due for a change. However, the exterior now looks very similar to an a class, golf, i30 etc etc. For me, the 1 series used to offer something a bit different in that class. Long bonnet, rear drive and now they’ve taken those things away I feel like the 1 series has lost some of its identity. There’s no chance I’d ever get a 1 series myself but I always liked the fact it was a little bit different. Maybe I’ll change my mind when I see one in real life but at the minute it’s almost as disappointing as when I saw the mk3 Seat Leon and they’d scrapped the hidden back doors and the windscreen wipers that wiped the other way
