Drive Wire: Is This BMW’s New 1 Series?
In luxury car news, what appears to be the new compact BMW 1-Series has been spotted undergoing testing. Although there’s some skepticism about having standard front-wheel-drive with an all-wheel-drive option, we feel this spunky little BMW will hold its own. BMW needs a car to compete with the Mercedes CLA and the Audi A-3, and there’s no reason this car couldn’t be the fun one in the segment. The compact sedan is expected to start around $30,000.
