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.
