BMW is immersed in the process of fine-tuning the new 1 Series in its 2023 range. Here you have the last hour of the update of this premium compact.
The current BMW 1 Series that is being marketed dates from the year 2019, at which time the German firm decided to make a notorious change of course in the history of this compact by technically developing it under the platform that the specific brand has for front-engine vehicles. and front-wheel drive. Soon, the German firm plans to update this model, a car that will premiere renewal throughout 2023.
In recent days, several prototype vehicles of a more than likely BMW 1 Series have been sighted on some roads in Northern Europe. According to unofficial information to which we have had access, the main changes in this upcoming renewal of the German compact will focus on the aesthetic chapter. In this way, the refreshed 1 Series could take certain styling cues from the new 2 Series Active Tourer, starting with a slightly enlarged grille and body color instead of black front air intake trims.
On the other hand, the headlights could look sharper and sportier, with which the German firm would provide a somewhat more aggressive style to your vehicle. At the rear, changes could be limited to restyled bumpers or even a new signature for the headlamp cluster.
Like other models like the recently redesigned X3, X4, and 8 Series, the 2023 Series 1 could see its range reduced during this update. The number of combinations of engines, transmissions, and finishes would be somewhat less than the current commercial offer. In this way, everything indicates that the entry-level variants in the range would be better equipped, which would be accompanied by a significant increase in prices.
Inside, the digital instrument panel behind the steering wheel and the large central screen (10.23 inches) of the multimedia system could already be offered as standard in all finishes, all accompanied by an improved multimedia system for information, entertainment, navigation, and connectivity. On the other hand, the occasional novelty is also expected about safety and driving assistance systems.
Finally, at the mechanical level, there will be no relevant news, although some of its versions could slightly improve their efficiency levels thanks to the incorporation of 48V mild-hybrid micro-hybrid technology. At the top of the range should remain the M135i xDrive of about 306 hp.
