The hatchback version of the 1 series is being redesigned for the 2012 model year. And I must say it does look quite good. A very nice evolution of the current model. That means the coupe and convertible versions, sold over here, will follow about a year later. This is the current 1 series. So you can see the difference. I usually am not crazy of evolutionary designs, but I think this one works. The new car looks sportier and more upscale as well.
