BMW 1-Series sedan in the works, will arrive in the United States in 2017

Article by Christian A., on November 17, 2014

Vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz CLA or the Audi A3 Sedan are quite popular and BMW knows this fact very well. As a result, the Bavarian carmaker is preparing a sedan version of it 1-Series, which will arrive in the United States in 2017. The new model will use the same front-wheel-drive architecture from the smaller MINI Cooper, which means it will be close to its competitors.

There are no details regarding an M version of the upcoming 1-Series sedan, but taking in consideration that Audi offers the S3 Sedan, while Mercedes-Benz sells the CLA 45 AMG, we believe that we will see a sporty version of the sedan.

Nothing is official yet, but we might see the same engine used by the MINI lineup and this means that the 1-Series sedan might receive the 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines as well as the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine found on the MINI Cooper S and delivering 189 bhp and 280 Nm of torque.
