Why not launch it as a "Gxx" already? We are almost on the 1 series facelift, until this thing gets to the market BMW will be lauching the next gen 1-series..this is gonna be like the X4 to the X3. A new car with dated interior and underpinning.
Too bad it is more of a sedan than a four door coupe like the CLA.
Edit: can you elaborate more on this sport hatch variant? We will have the 1 series hatch and another one based on this car or they will be the same thing?
