I have been patiently waiting for the next generation BMW Kompakt (as I called my previous car) and here it comes. BMW finally revealed photos of their upcoming 1-Series. It is confirmed that it will be sold in the American Market as well.

The car will feature 2 engines so far. A 128i with the well known 230 horsepower inline 6, and A 135i with the 300 horsepower inline 6 cylinder twin-turbo from its big brother the 335i. I’m sure BMW will plan for an //M model as well.

Expect a base price ranging between a fully loaded Mini Cooper and an entry level 3-Series.
