The first patent images of areas of the upcoming BMW 1er Gran Turismo nee Active Tourer have been found.
And as you can see what you see as a concept is very much the reality.

As you can see there will be LED lights and even side cameras available as optional equipment.
Like the equivalent B-Klasse , BMW expects the GT to be also a second car or a weekend hauler for the customer that may have an X5 etc so the emphasis is on downsizing a luxury car into a more populated and growing segment. And yes that is US style side reflectors on the wheel arch as BMW do have plans to eventually sell this car to US customers.

The M850i is evidence that BMW have got their mojo back when it comes to dynamic sports cars...
