The new craze with luxury automakers is building compact luxury sedans. Audi has a new A3 sedan and Mercedes-Benz is working on the new CLA. Now, BMW is joining the craze with a new 1-Series sedan.
Autocar reports that BMW has begun planning a new 1-Series sedan to come out after the new 1-series coupé and convertible.
The sedan will be the spiritual successor to the E30 3-Series.
The report says the sedan will utlize a RWD platform using some bits from the new 3-Series. This seems a bit odd since BMW is working on a new FWD platform.
Powertrains will include four and six-cylinder engines, with an electric powertrain under consideration. AWD will be an option.
