New BMW 1 Series 2019 Interior Facelift and Release Date
To say that a new car is attractive or not, it is very subjective. Some may love the design while others may hate it. In this case, 2019 BMW 1 Series can be one of the examples. Some of us perhaps disagree to say it as an attractive hatchback. It sounds the company is playing safe to improve its design. It is true that they have been working since 2011 to present the vehicle. Back in 2015, they provided the major redesign for the vehicle. Sadly, their work is still not enough. We hope that BMW does not give up giving something special. Fortunately, we have the first spy shots of the vehicle.
What you can say to a vehicle that has a heavy camouflage from the roof to the ground? Well, forget that point. Here, new BMW 1 Series 2019 is possible to get a new design language with the sleeker appearance compared to the outgoing model. BMW seems push all their effort to change everything, including the shape of the taillights, the headlights as well as the size of the vehicle.
The highlight will be the platform. BMW is going to provide a new UKL platform to replace the RWD for the FWD as the standard. Even though this information is still according to rumors, we hope it comes to be true. This platform is the same as the one in the 2 Series Active Tourer and the Gran Tourer Minivan. The company decided changing it to FWD after they have done the study back in 2010 where 80% of people believed that the company would offer the FWD setup.
We cannot speak many things when it comes to the cabin design of the 2019 BMW 1 Series. It is because there is no spy shot that can tell us their work inside. When they change the shape and the size of the vehicle, surely it will give a big impact inside of the vehicle. Therefore, we hope that they can make the interior is roomier than before. In addition, they are going to offer a new platform that will surely change some parts of the cabin. What we expect is the cabin of the vehicle has something better to provide, such as the higher quality level and the ultimate comfort.
There is no clear information we can tell you when it is all about the powertrain of the new 2019 BMW 1 Series. Even though they are going to offer the FWD setup, not all variants will receive it. The base model will get this setup. Meanwhile, if you purchase the high-end model, it has better equipment. Probably, BMW will support it with the xDrive setup. One thing you should know about the UKL platform is that it is able to handle some options of three and four-cylinder turbocharged engine. It means that they can remove the six-cylinder unit.
BMW 1 Series 2019 Release Date and Price
The spy shots cannot tell us the significant information of its arrival. We believe that the new 2019 BMW 1 Series will not come too soon. It seems they are going to introduce the vehicle in the end of 2018 or in the beginning of 2019. The price should be as competitive as they can to attract the potential buyers.
