BMW 1 Series is a 5-door hatchback coded as F20 will soon to be launched in Indian market and will be a rear wheel drive hatchback. It has many similarities with the earlier BMW 3 series as it shares the same platform and was first unveiled in 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was released in International market in 2011 and is now coming to Indian market in a hope of attracting the crowd here which likes a class, luxury and brand name and not hesitant to spend some extra cash for it.

In International markets, BMW 1 Series 5-door hatchback will be available in total 13 variants out of which six are petrol which are 114i, 116i, 118i, 125i, M135i and M135i xDrive and seven are diesel which are 114d, 116d, 116d EfficientDynamics Edition, 118d, 120d, 120d xDrive and 125d.

It is available in total of nine shades in International market which are: Metallic Black Sapphire, Metallic Deep Sea Blue, Metallic Glacier Silver, Metallic Sparkling Bronze, Metallic Midnight Blue, Metallic Mineral Grey, Alpine White, Simple Black and Crimson Red. Overall, this hatchback seems like a perfect blend of supreme luxury, comfort, space, safety, performance, eco-friendly features, speed, class and mileage and nothing beats it in price as it is expected to be in range of INR 20-25 lakhs and thus around a couple of lakhs less than X1 Crossover and will give direct competition to Mercedes A-Class in Indian market.
