^ Agreed, the white M-Sport 5 door looks quite nice.

They made the back of a 1 look like the space of a 7! That's hilarious. Did they use a fish-eye lens?!

No it's not! Because with a tiny 4'6" driver, the front seat has to be all the way forward in order for them to reach the gas and brake pedals... in turn, leaving enough room for basketball players in the back seat

Technically, shouldn't the 1-series be a 4-door anyway?

1 series is a 4 door..

I also saw the 2 series FWD Tourer while i was in Japan 1 week ago... It was very cheap looking and the proportion reminded me Chevy Sonic....

BMW's smallest sedan arrives in North America with three- and four-cylinder gasoline engines.

Remember when BMW said the 1 Series Sedan would only be offered in China? Scratch that. The front-wheel-drive sedan riding on the same UKL platform as the 2 Series minivans and the Minis is being launched in Mexico where it joins the RWD 1 Serieshatchback offered in both three- and five-door flavors. Available exclusively as a Sport Line version, the FWD sedan starts off at 489,900 MXN ($24,561) and that makes it roughly $2,256 more affordable than the base 3 Series Sedan.

The entry-level 1 Series Sedan known locally as the 118iA Sedan Sport Line is motivated by a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine developing 136 horsepower and 162 pound-feet (220 Newton-meters) of torque. The three-cylinder mill is hooked up to a six-speed automatic gearbox to enable a sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in 9.4 seconds and an electronically governed top speed of 132 mph (212 kph).

If that seems a little bit slow, you’ll then have to step up to the 120iA Sedan Sport Line with its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a starting price of 569,900 MXN ($28,571). The four-cylinder unit is good for 192 hp and 207 lb-ft (280 Nm) channeled to the front axle through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It needs seven and a half seconds to complete the sprint and tops out at 146 mph (235 kph), also electronically capped.

Upgrading to the four-cylinder model will also have a positive impact on equipment as the 120iA Sedan Sport Line has some extra features over the 118i model. Additional goodies include LED headlights, panoramic roof, and a practical 40:20:40-split folding rear bench that will come in handy whenever carrying more voluminous cargo.

The fact that it’s being launched in Mexico doesn’t necessarily mean the 1 Series Sedan will be available in additional countries. That being said, it goes to show BMW has had a change of heart and is now open to the idea of selling its smallest sedan in more markets.

BMW has been graciously stretching out the death of the rear-wheel drive BMW 1 Series for years now, thankfully, but it’s nearing the end. The BMW 1 Series Finale Edition is anticipated to be the last rear-wheel drive, six-cylinder version of the model ever, and it’s only for the Australian market.

Since it’s not in America, the Finale Edition has the benefit of being the hatchback bodystyle, too, which I have to admit I’ve always liked slightly more than the old coupe and Chinese sedan, so I’m extremely jealous.

The Finale Edition will be sold for $3,000 Australian dollars over the sticker price of a normal M140i, which translates to roughly $2,119 U.S. dollars at current exchange rates, for a total price of $62,990 Aussie, or roughly $44,500 U.S.

This special edition of the M140i will only be available with the 8-speed automatic (how hard could it have been to give the manual one last shot in this car, BMW?), and gets the choice of three 18-inch alloy wheel designs, a black kidney grille, darkened head and taillights, and black chrome exhaust tips.

Otherwise the car is basically spec’d out with the other package options already available, including blue brake calipers, adaptive M suspension, leather interior, LED headlights, upgraded audio, and a sunroof.

The powertrain is also the standard but outgoing rear-wheel drive layout with a 335 horsepower turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder with 368 lb-ft of torque, and a limited top speed of 155 mph.

The 1 Series is suspected to return as a front-wheel drive model in the next couple of years, and a front-wheel drive sedan is already marketed as the 1 Series in China. The new car in the Western market is expected to at least have the option of xDrive all-wheel drive, according to Motor1, so maybe it won’t be all bad.

Knowing how the 340i drives with the same motor, i can only imagine how much better the M140i drives.....
