Thanks to "Dackelone" for this translation of AutoBild about the future 1er.



In this week’s issue of AutoBild they have an interesting article on the new 1-er’s coming our way. I posted the pictures bellow my post.

The biggest news - I think is a new SportsVan based on the ONE. The magazine says it might be FWD or even AWD.

Some highlights:
* 2011 - three door, RWD
* 2011 – five door, RWD
* 2012 – coupe, RWD
* 2012 – Cabriolet, RWD
* 2013 – Sports Van, FWD or AWD
* 2013 – GT, FWD or AWD

Gasoline engines
* 116i – 1.6L Turbo, 136 PS
* 118I –1.6L Turbo, 156 PS
* 120i – 2.0L, 177 PS (NA)
* 125i – 2.0 Turbo, 218 PS

Diesel engines
* 116d – 2.0 Turbo, 122 PS
* 118d – 2.0 Turbo, 150 PS
* 123d – 2.0 Bi-Turbo 204 PS

One interesting point they say is that the top performance models (ie: 135i) will always remain RWD!

MINI’s
The magazine also states that the new Mini will have some three cylinder engines coming out. 1.2L to 1.5L engines (100 PS to 184 PS). The top Mini engine will be a John Cooper Works 2.0L turbo 220 PS to 250 PS versions.

1GT looks really mean! I like.

I vote the FWD sports van project be banished though. DO NOT WANT.

When you said "coming our way" I assumed you meant NA (since your location is Boston). Our choices are often very limited. For instance we can't get any of those great 1 series hatchbacks I see in Europe I don't see anything here that indicates these cars are going to be available in NA.
