Post BMW 1 Series Sedan (F52) - Live photos from Shanghai

The BMW 1 Series Sedan was developed exclusively for the Chinese market, with nearly no chance to come to other markets (yet).

The sedan saw its market launch already back in Mid-February 2017, but for a lot of people from inside and outside of China, the Shanghai Motor Show will be the first chance to put hands to the new car.

Since the new car is technically based on the UKL platform, it shares front wheel drive, engines and clues of the interior with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and X1.
Buyers have a choice between a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder with 136 hp, which is mated to six-speed automatic. And there’s the boosted 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 192 hp, which features an eight-speed automatic transmission. Drivers can choose between three driving modes — Comfort, Sport, or Eco Pro — to adjust the ride and save on fuel.

In terms of dimensions, the 1-Series sedan has a length of 4,456 mm (175.4 in), a width of 1,803 mm (70.9 in) and a height of 1,446 mm (56.9 in), while its short overhangs, long bonnet and wheelbase give it an elongated sporty look.

The market for everything premium-compact is booming in China, with SUVs leading the way followed by sedans and even MPVs. The main competitor for the BMW 1-Series sedan is the Audi A3 sedan as well as the Mercedes CLA, both are already available in China.

The price of the compact BMW ranges from around 180,000 to 260,000 yuan ($26,100 – 37,720).

That gear selector looks so out of place and a last minute thought....

Exterior looks alright, but too bad for the fwd and China exclusive.

I love sedans as dayli drivers and I love small cars due to their nimbleness. It's just a shame that it's FWD. I would love to have it in a 130i or 140i version with RWD.
