According to a company source it appears that Bmw plans to introduce an entry-level front-wheel-drive sedan. The new model will be slotted below the 3-Series sedan and ill arrive in 2017. The 1-Series sedan will take on the Audi A3 sedan and the Mercedes-Benz CLA and just like its rivals the new Bavarian sedan will be developed to support FWD and four-wheel-drive.

Dubbed NES (New Entry-level Sedan), the new car is part of a range of fwd models scheduled for the BMW lineup. Moreover, it will use company’s new UKL, for "entry-level," structure, same used by the 2014 MINI Cooper, which will be unveiled in November at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

According to the same source, the new entry-level sedan is integral to Bmw’s growth plan and it will be an important pillar in the future 1-Series lineup, especially in the United States and China.
