To launch globally early next year.

AutoBild has rendered the BMW 1 Series Sedan (codename – BMW F52) that will reportedly arrive in European showrooms early next year.

The 1 Series sedan will be based on the UKL1 front-wheel drive platform, but will share powertrains with the current 1- and 2-Series variants.

Though BMW is late to the entry-level premium sedan segment, the company has been knocking the doors of this segment with other models such as the Active Tourer and the 2 Series variants.

Reports say that the 1 Series sedan will feature the front-wheel drive layout (UKL1 platform) and share powertrains with the 1 Series and 2 Series vehicles, which range from a 1.5L three-cylinder petrol/diesel engine to a 2.0L four-cylinder petrol and diesel, with power outputs ranging between 109 hp to 224 hp. At an additional cost, the xDrive AWD could also fitted.

The 1 Series sedan is late to the party as the Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA have already made in-roads in the entry-sedan market.

The design of the 1er sedan should be recognizable, with cues coming from the forthcoming 3 Series facelift and the recently unveiled 1 Series facelift.

Other reports say that the 1 Series sedan will make its world debut in September at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Expect the model to launch in India 6-8 months following its global rollout, to battle with the Audi A3 sedan and the Mercedes CLA Class.
