The next BMW 1 Series is the first of six upcoming models due to switch to new front-wheel drive underpinnings called FAAR (Frontantriebsarchitektur).
Each will come with either two or all-wheel drive. We run through what to expect in the list below.
1 Series hatchback
The first model to benefit from the new FAAR platform. Insiders indicate that it will again be offered with the choice of three and five-door layouts.
2 Series Gran Turismo
Instead of the China-made front-driven 1 Series saloon, BMW will offer Europe a FAAR-based model that's likely to be a saloon-cum-hatchback.
2 Series Active Tourer
