German magazine Auto Bild delivers a new rendering of the upcoming BMW 1 Series Sedan. Built under the codename F52, the 1 Series Sedan will take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLA and the Audi A3 Sedan, which are also front-wheel-drive-based. The sub-3-series model is underpinned by BMW’s first front-wheel drive platform which also drives the wheels of the 2 Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer, and the new X1.

The rendering shown here uses design cues from the current 3 and 4 Series family with some influences from the BMW Concept Compact Sedan. The headlights are still connected to the kidney grille, while the lower front fascia takes some inspiration from the BMW M2.

BMW aims to bring the 1 Series Sedan to the same proportions as the E46 3 Series, therefore filling a gap between the 1 Series Hatch and the F30 3 Series Sedan.

Under the hood, the 1 Series Sedan will carry either three- and four-cylinder inline direct-injection petrol and common-rail diesel units. 6-speed manual and 8-speed Steptronic gearboxes will be offered.

The 1 Series Sedan is expected to debut in 2017.

    Why do new BMWs all look so angry? Are BMW owners not happy in life?

    The joining of the headlights to the kidneys is a design mistake.
