This is the next generation BMW 1 Series, which was caught testing by our spy photographers.
Our latest pictues show both the interior and exterior of the car, shedding more light on how it will look when it goes on sale in 2011, with the five-door hatch the first model in the line-up.
It will be followed by a three-door, coupe and convertible, while performance M versions and a mini-MPV derivative have also been mooted.
Although the car ran in the much used, swirl-based disguise employed by BMW, it is possible to make out many of the new BWM 1 Series’ new lines.
The design doesn’t appear to have deviated dramatically from the current model, although standout features include a redesigned front end, with the bigger and more upright kidney grilles taking styling cues from the BMW 5 Series GT.
