The sharply styled Concept could be the replacement for the 1 Series and 2 Series, the smallest models in the BMW range. The Concept Compact Sedan has front-wheel drive, marking a major departure from the norm for BMW. The German manufacturer has focused on rear-wheel and all-wheel drive cars until this point.
The concept is likely to be a preview for the design of a new BMW model. BMW has been dropping hints recently that suggest its smaller models have a front-wheel drive future. The 2 Series Active Tourer and the X1 are both very successful models with front-wheel drive so it seems likely that BMW will expand its range of models that use this platform.
If a production version of the Concept Compact Sedan was produced, it would be a strong rival for models such as the Audi A3 Saloon and the Mercedes CLA. The clean, fluid lines of the bodywork and its recognisable BMW silhouette create a modern and appealing aesthetic.
The Concept would be powered by a range of refined and efficient engines, with both petrol and diesel options. There would also be the option of a high-performance M model with more power and a sportier setup.
