BMW UK releases new media of the 2012 BMW 1 Series. The Black Sapphire Metallic 1er features the aggressive M sport package that will be available starting this fall.

In the London area, BMW UK held a photoshoot session of a 118i model with 17-inch light-allow wheel start spoke 379.

The interior shots showcase the new, luxurious design with the freestanding 8.8-inch infotainment screen. The Dakota leather in Coral Red provides a beautiful contrast with the metallic black.

Video & Photos: 2012 BMW 1 Series in Sapphire Black

As seen in the video below, the new 1 Series features a bold front that aims to stand out with a pair of large headlights surrounding a flat and smaller than expected kidney grille. The hood sports the creases seen on all the new BMWs and facelifted models.

From the side, the usual character line flows from the rear to the front end, and on its way it creates a series of convex and concave shapes. In the back, the taillights feature integrated LED with the usual L-shape. 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.

The F20 1 Series remains an European-only model and there are no indication that BMW will bring it across the ocean.

    it actually looks pretty good in black. i must admit, when i first saw the new design, i thought it was the ugliest thing i’ve ever seen.. now, it’s actually growing on me and looks pretty good.

    I’ve warmed up to the exterior design. Black Sapphire is definitely my favorite color (with M Sport pack).The headlights look more aggressive while in motion. Two thumbs up for the interior. I’d love to trade my ’11 E82 135i coupe interior for this one (maybe in Terra color though). Gets me excited to see the new 3er saloon unveiled. Thanks for posting the video and photos!

    Are you sure this is in M Sport kit BMW Blog?
    It doesnt show the M sign on the wheels or steering wheel, plus is doesnt look as good as the other pics you had of a black 1er M Sport a couple months back.
