The E36 318ti hatchback actually sold pretty well in the US, despite rumors it was a flop. BMW dumped it because a 4 cylinder, cheap hatchback wasnít in line with its desire to be a true luxury brand in the US. Probably the same story with a 1 Series hatchback.

I owned a 318ti for 12 years and would love a 1 series hatch, but itís not in BMWUSAs game plan. I liked my 318ti better than the E46, E90 and E61 Iíve owned.
