Launching in the UK on 17 September 2011, the new 2012 BMW 1 Series continues its marketing campaign. BMW UK releases a new video that gives us a closer look at the exterior and interior design of the new 1er.

In the UK, the new BMW 1 Series is available in a variety of different trim levels, each providing a different level of standard specification. ES, SE, Sport and Urban models are all included.

At launch time, the F20 1er is offered in a variety of exterior colors: Black Sapphire, Alpine White, Crimson Red, Mineral Gray, Midnight Blue, Deep Sea blue, Glacier Silver, Mineral White, Liquid Blue, Valencia Orange. In the fall, the M Sport package becomes available and among the usual exterior and interior upgrades, will also include the historical Estoril Blue paint.

Styling wise, the F20 1 Series follows the design language initiated by BMW back in 2009 when the new 7 Series came to market. The car features a bold front that aims to stand out with what we believe are a pair of oversized headlights surrounding a flat and smaller than expected kidney grille. The hood sports the creases seen on all the new BMWs and facelift models.

The car continues to feature a similar hatch-look as the previous generation with a lower positioned trunk and a a more emphasized trunk-lid.

Pricing is expected to be announced later this summer.

    The interior LED light color change gimmick is tacky.  That stuff belongs in a Scion or a Ford.

    Terribly bad design, even worse than the 1st generation, because it’s more bland. A bit like a Toyota, or a VW, you feel nothing except you know it’s a reliable machine, nothing more.

    As the guy says in the add “I am getting use to this car”. I nod in agreement. I do not know what it is but I decided to look at it again today and I really like it especially in the blue with the silver grill. I would buy. I think BMW has managed to do it again. Challenge my opinion on what i think is pleasing to the eye and the change my opinion. BMW pushes boundaries and I like this. While the 5series is beautiful, at the moment it is too safe… i like the hard sharp edges and lines. Anyway my point is i am starting to like the 1 series and cannot wait to see it in person.
