The BMW 1 Series is quite similar to the 3 Series but, the short overhang is giving it a more sportier look over an executive sedan. The interiors are yet to be revealed by the manufacturer but, it can be inferred that the styling will be oriented more towards a sportier touch with a touch of premium-ness. The premium compact car segment is catching up pace across the globe and specially in China, and BMW’s step of introducing the 1 Series Sedan in China first looks quite a smart step.
