• Officially Official - Pictures of the new F20 BMW 1 series hatchback, gets 247 horsepower N20 turbo 4 cylinder

      Turns out the photo leaked early was not a joke. There is going to be a lot of controversy over this design, that is for sure. There will be a plethora of diesel models in Europe but what is interesting is the car is getting the new turbo four cylinder N20 motor putting our 247 horses. A sedan and coupe version have not been confirmed so it may be that the US will get the hatchback and the coupe/sedan will be the rumored 2 series.

        Maybe the 2 series will be less ugly, let us pray.

        Now I think 5GT is a pretty car.

        You got my words, 5GT with this one stays on on the top shelf of BMW most UGLY cars ever produced. Can't wait to see one with 3 cyl. transverse mounted engine delivering power to the front wheels. Click here to enlarge

        I now know that the worst part is this: it's a shame because the interiors are getting amazing, whilst the exteriors are just no match for them.

        The flat front and oversized grills don't work for every car...

        everyone thought the 135 was ugly as $#@! until they drove one... then they became beautiful all of a sudden, give it a chance; i like this little N20 and the car doesnt look that bad.

        Look at it again when you are sober.

        Do like that it will have the N20.

        I will for sure take the new VW R20 over this. I would probably even take my GTI over this. I just don't like how it looks. It's not pleasing to the eye like the new 5 series. 247 hp, I think they could have done better but we'll see when some tuners get their hands on this.

        well, I need to get used to the front. I think i might like it after some time, but it's looks kinda strange to me now...

        The rear of the car looks like a VW Golf, the front looks like... actually, it doesn't look at all. Those headlights are hideous.

        Why would they go back to the pop-up navigationscreen? Seems like a step backwards.
