Just look a this.
This is the car BMW swears is "exclusively for the Chinese market".
Caught testing in Europe.
And you know it's coming over here too.
There is quite a market for these small sedans with big badges.
Like the FWD Mercedes CLA or the Golf based Audi A3 sedan.
And it doesn't matter how cramped they are inside, as long as that expensive badge is outside.
Again, I predict it is only a matter of time until the 1 series sedan makes it to the US as well.
