The 2015 BMW 1-Series is rumored to have its premiere at the Detroit Auto Show next year. Since the model is not available in the USA, this information, although unofficial, made many wonder whether the new 1-Series will return to conquer the American soil. We find this quite unlikely to happen, since its place on the USA market is taken by the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, which hold a big market share and seems as though it won’t let go of it. Regardless of that, the new 2015 1-Series will bring novelties to all the markets it will be present on. To start with, the new model will receive a facelift. As the current automotive trend demands, the new model will have to prepare a new, more aggressive and futuristic face for the show if it intends to keep its customers. That’s exactly what the new 1-Series have in store for us. The new model will come with a new, bold exterior, but the changes won’t end there. The new 1-Series will also have its interior redesigned. This particular redesign might be a bit smaller in scale, but it will make the difference and it will bring some new equipment along. In addition, the 2015 BMW 1-Series will offer two new engines. All these changes will surely attract more customers, and with a good reason, since this means that the current fantastic model just got a bit better.
2015 BMW 1-Series Refreshed Exterior
The 2015 BMW 1-Series will have a new, refreshed appearance. The changes will not be drastic, but they will certainly give the car a new feel. The design will follow the current BMW trend, which is included in all its models, so expect a well-balanced, sporty and a bit aggressive look typical for this manufacturer. The new 1-Series will, however, stand out of the crowd with some styling details of its own. The new model will feature a slightly refreshed grille with new restyled headlights and front bumper. The rear end will be just as modern and it will complete the overall design perfectly. As for the interior, the new 2015 BMW 1-Series will have its cabin redesigned, but there are no reports or photos of its future design yet. However, some sources claim that the new cabin will be more comfortable and that it will feature more gadgets and equipment. One of the sure novelties will be the latest generation of the iDrive infotainment system.
Specs Of New Engines
The 2015 BMW 1-Series will offer two new engines. One of them will be a 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged unit, while the other, more powerful one will be a brand new turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine. The latter belongs to the Cooper lineup and it will be capable of generating 189 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, which is an impressive output for a car this class. However, this will not be the most powerful option. There will also be a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that generates an amazing 320 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 BMW 1-Series will offer two possible transmission options: an eight-speed automatic and a six-speed manual gearbox.
2015 BMW 1-Series Release
The 2015 BMW 1-Series will probably have its premiere at the next year’s Detroit Auto Show. Its release should happen shortly after. However, there are still no announcements regarding its possible comeback to the American market, but in our opinion, this is highly unlikely. The 1-Series were withdrawn in order to make place for the 2-Series, which had a great impact on the USA buyers. Now, that the 2-Series have accomplished their goal as a beloved vehicle in the USA, one simply must wonder what are the chances there is still some room left for the 1-Series.
