BMW 1-Series Sedan: There Is Still Hope For The US

By  | 

When BMW first took the covers off the new BMW 1-Series sedan in China, they made it clear that the vehicle will be offered in China exclusively but things have certainly changed now as BMW announce that the BMW 1-Series sedan will be offered in the US as well.

The BMW 1-Series will come in with a 1.5-liter TwinPower three-cylinder engine that will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and will be offering about 136hp and 162lb ft of torque. This will allow the vehicle to go from 0-60mph in 9.4 seconds with a top speed of 131mph.

Other features include leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control system, LED DRL, rain sensing wipers, 17inch alloy wheels and more. The base model will be offered at $24,607 right now.

While there is no news on whether this model will be heading to the US, it does look more promising now since BMW is willing to offer it outside of China.
