We’ve finally spotted BMW’s answer to the Mercedes CLA and Audi A3 sedan. The F52 1 Series Sedan is built upon the FWD platform which will also underpin the the next generation 1 Series hatchback and 2 Series Coupe/Convertible to follow after this sedan. It will also be offered with AWD xDrive.

So this year’s show was held at a much larger parking lot. Metro is kind of the German version of Price Club. :D

We even had some crazy BMW lovers(nuts) come all the way from Moscow, Russia! Some 5K kms one way! Now that’s some RESPECT! … CONTINUED

CAR recently undertook a premium hot hatch comparison, featuring the M135i against the Mercedes A45 AMG and the Audi S3 (full review). Here’s how the trio stack up on paper:

The M135i serves up 320 HP and 332 LB-FT (450 Nm) from its 3 liter turbo N55 engine, mated to the 8 speed automatic ZF transmission and is RWD.

The Mercedes comes with the most power, but is also the most expensive out of this group, powered by a 360 HP / 332 LB-FT (450 Nm) 2-liter … CONTINUED

In this video review Autoexpress tests the BMW M135i against the Mercedes A45 AMG – with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it’s going to be a stern rival for the BMW.

The BMW gets a six-cylinder engine, revs to 7000rpm but peak torque is at just 1300rpm, so it has instant power. It does come in manual, but we’ve got the eight-speed automatic gearbox. Autoexpress took it around our track in just 1 minute 14 seconds.
