We would have liked to see the 1 series hatch with a 4 cylinder diesel come over here, even though it wouldn't be a huge seller. My wife wound up buying a 2013 A3 TDI, even though it is a glorified Golf and the last year of the old body style. There just isn't anything else like it on the US market. To my eyes, it looks better than the current 1 series hatch, but a if it came here equipped with one of their ED diesels and BMW build quality, the styling could be overlooked.

It seems like BMW would get their act together and make their 1-series and X1 better looking, as it costs just as much to make an ugly car as it does an attractive one.
