Fifth Gear takes the new 1 for a spin
5 words: I am not a fan.
The automotive crew at Fifth Gear review BMW’s latest model, the new, redesigned and somewhat controversial 2012 BMW 1 Series. To make it even more interesting, Fifth Gear filmed the review with an….iPhone 4.
As we wrote prior to the official press launch, Styling wise, the F20 1 Series follows the design language initiated by BMW back in 2009 when the new 7 Series came to market. The car features a bold front that aims to stand out with what we believe are a pair of oversized headlights surrounding a flat and smaller than expected kidney grille.
In the back, the taillights are a bit too busy for our taste with an integrated LED L-shape. The car continues to feature a similar hatch-look as the previous generation with a lower positioned trunk and a a more emphasized trunk-lid.
Inside is where the new F20 really shines. The interior upgrades are bringing back the premium feel and touch, along with the usual driver oriented position. The Sports line of the new 1er stands out even more, with beautiful red accents inserted and gorgeous dashboard and gauges.
