BMW recently revealed the controversial second generation 1 Series. This 5-door BMW offers a sportier look and is roomier and more fuel efficient than its predecessor. The 1 Series is the only rear-wheel-drive premium compact.
While many BMW enthusiasts were outraged by the design, the new model features some stylish updates and a lot of opportunities for personalization. The cockpit is driver-friendly and offers all of the high quality materials and luxurious feel BMW drivers have come to know. An iDrive system is also available as an option.
All of the engines on the new 1 Series are four-cylinder and feature the new BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The new model is also the first car in its class to offer an optional eight-speed automatic transmission.
