The small four-door previews the upcoming 1 series compact, BMW’s first front-drive sedan. The concept car is built on the ULK front-wheel drive platform which also underpins the new X1.

BMW is expected to launch the 1 Series Sedan in 2017 and will take on the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and Audi A3 sedan.
