Ok. I joined to say this. FWD? Please no. But, I think this should have been the paired hatchback with the 1 coupe. Personally, I think the 1 coupe looks great and the hatchback looks aweful. I do NOT understand why everyone loves the hatchback. It has a ridiculously sized hood that makes the car looks awful and incomplete. Like someone just chopped a coupe in half.

THIS car should have been the hatchback version. Except for FWD, I love it. THIS car could have competed with the VW hatchbacks.

I like the way it looks, but don't understand what they mean by the gap between the Mini and the 1 series. But if it drove well and was fuel efficient, I'd consider it as a commuter car.

I find the 1 Series hatchback awesome and the coupe hideous myself. You should ask yourself the question why is it that you seem to be the only one who likes the coupe but hate the hatchback. Just kidding. To each his own. Nevertheless, it seems apparent that BMW is losing sales in NA by not having the 1 Series hatchback for sale here.

I am a beautiful and unique snowflake...


I'd prefer to have the hatchback option than none. But, given the choice between these two, I would take the 0 series over the current design. I'm glad there is choice in the world b/c we can disagree


Edit: The dislike stems from the hood. I just can't get past a fullsize hood on a little hatchback

Why not. Mercedes have had the A series in Europe for over a decade.

It certainly hasn't diluted the prestige of their larger cars.

Bmw has introduced ANOTHER line of vehicles shortly after the announcement of the 0 series. The new line of production vehicles will be All Wheel Drive and be equipped with bi-turbos much like the current 1-5 series cars. The numerical label for this new fleet will be dubbed: The '-1' series because they have no other direction to go.

"Hey guys, i just bought a negative one thirty five i."

^a friend of mine at work, who isn't into cars, saw my 135i loaner in the parking lot one day and asked me what it was. I told him it was a 135i. He goes 'oh, I thought it was like a negative 3 series or something."
