Coming Stateside: BMW 1 Series

BMW 1 Series will arrive to the U.S. next year.

It's also believed that the 135i will come with the 300-hp TT I-6. The worst part is that it won't be the beautiful hatch pictured below. It will be avialable as a sedan, coupe, and convertible only.





I think the coupe will still be secks though.

Too bad Americans don't generally appreciate the bodystyle, and think hatchbacks are only for economy cars. People were OK with the mini, and I hope that that goodwill will extend to the 1 series, but I'm just not too confident that people will give this car a chance.

I don't really like the look of the exterior. It just doesn't flow for me. I doubt I'll fell the same way when I see one in person. I think the A3 must be doing well. I see them everywhere up here.

Wow that thing's pretty sweet! I'll look forward to its arrival... is that what it'll look like for us, or is this still the Euro one?
