And it will be based on a FWD platform (Sure to be blasphemy for the BMW purists) shared with the new Mini Cooper. (although obviously a stretched version )
Since we never get the 1 series hatchback to begin with, I doubt will will ever be getting this in the US.
Which is too bad. It does look better than the Mercedes B-Class (Also FWD)
Or did they change it just enough to make it more boring, softer?
More pictures of the real thing very soon...
