New renderings of the BMW 1 Series Sedan surface on the interwebs.

The new four-door compact sedan will join the BMW fleet in 2017 as a response to the popular Mercedes-Benz CLA and Audi A3 Sedan.

BMW’s 1 Series Sedan has been developed to support front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive and it is built internally under the name NES (New Entry-Level Sedan). It uses the front-wheel drive architecture which will be used in many models by BMW, including the new 2 Series Active Tourer and second generation X1.

Front-wheel drive will be standard, but select variants will be available at an additional cost with an xDrive system. 6-speed manual and 8-speed Steptronic gearboxes willbe offered.

BMW aims to bring the 1 Series Sedan to the same proportions as the E46 3 Series with a design featuring the angular and sleek headlights seen on recent BMW cars, which extend into the kidney grille. The nose sits more upright whole the front bumper sports the usual air intakes. In the back, the F52 sedan gets the L-shaped taillights.

    If it comes out in 2017 on a new platform, I kinda doubt it will have the same front fascia as the 2015 1-series hatch as these renders suggest.

  2. Icebreaker says:

    china only?

  3. jason bourne says:

    Looks like what the old 3-series used to be… Less the front-wheel drive (bleah).

  4. Jan Nissen says:

    I hope that nobody buys these cars, so BMW doesn’t do shit like this again. I was a bit shocked at the announced shared platform, but this is just another level. This was BMWs chance to make a small RWD saloon, and they fucked it up…

  5. Ivan Neri says:

    Look Great? Look simply Fat!

  6. Matt Stokes says:

    Front bumper doesn’t seem to match latest spy photos at all. I don’t think it will look that much as the current F2x 1-er.

  7. Sinnapappa says:

    Tragic. I got to take good care of my E87 or grab a face-lifted F20 before it is too late to enjoy a propper RWD compact.
