Lightbulb BMW 1 Series Sedan (F52) Emerges (updated with first video)

BMW 1 Series Sedan Emerges!

First video:

Updated March 18, 2015 with first Nurburgring testing photos.

Updated March 2, 2015 with cold climate testing photos.

Updated November 7 with new photos.

We've finally spotted BMW's answer to the Mercedes CLA and Audi A3 sedan. The F52 1 Series Sedan is built upon the FWD platform which will also underpin the the next generation 1 Series hatchback and 2 Series Coupe/Convertible to follow after this sedan. It will also be offered with AWD xDrive.

BMW has previously gone on the record as saying that it "sees little need for a sedan smaller than the 3-Series," but it seems that the company has either reversed course, or were masking their plans from competitors until now.

Engine offerings will top out at 4 cylinders. The U.S. will get 120i and 125i (the latter with available xDrive) - source (ynguldyn).
