Third attempt in rendering the 1-Series sedan; attempt one (RWD) and two (FWD). fourth, if you include that Fiat Aegea-based BMW sedan. I still hope BMW sticks to RWD format for its small sedan. And likewise for the next generation 1-Series hatchback too.
Giving the 1-Series a much needed facelift, with reference to the 2-Series. I think this looks better.
The BMW Concept Active Tourer is likely be called 1-Series GT when it enters production, and as the first FWD car to wear the BMW badge. Next generation BMW 1-Series Hatchbacks will switch to FWD too, and I was inspired by that for this rendering.
Will this variant see the light?
With Audi building the A3 Sedan, and Mercedes with their CLC (A-Class Sedan), I think the second generation of the 1-Series should spawn a 4-door sedan variant. I’ve previously rendered a 1-Series Sedan based on BMW’s first generation compact, back in November 2009.
It’s obvious when the BMW 1-Series pictures were leaked, the styling raised many eyebrows for the wrong reason. Here’s my revision. Do you think it’s better? Do check out my earlier BMW 1-Series impressions here.
Which do you think is a nicer colour? Thanks to the suggestion by my friend Porsche-Power. I like a black BMW 1-Series M Convertible. By the way, below is an additional black 1-Series M Convertible, a rendering I did for submission to Carspyshots.net Photoshop Contest 37.
Since there’s a BMW 1-Series M Coupe, will there be a convertible version? Would look cool don’t you think?
When this blog was new, I posted renderings of the Toyota Corolla 2010 facelifts on 10 February. It was around the same time the renderings were uploaded to my flickr page (here and here). What puzzles me still, they are consistently the daily most viewed photos from my flickr uploads. And as of 21 May, both have […]
Nothing to shout about this, the front obviously uses the Lexus IS grille. The headlights are part Corolla and part IS. I rendered the slimmer rear lights to resemble the IS too, and added two exhaust for that extra bit of sportiness.
