But it's just another FWD hatch. There is plenty already.

BMW is the German Toyota, about time they got some FWDs. They're 35 years behind the competitors!

Hate to break it to you Dan but the 1 Series are all FWD Hatches now.

I think it might have been mentioned somewhere on the Internets, but you might have missed the e-mail. (I nearly said memo - showing my age!!)

Unfortunately emissions controls and fuel consumption over-ride every other consideration these days.

as long as it is a competent machine (unlike the Merc A-Class sedan which is dynamically flawed) any drive is alright.

Oh I know.  Conforming to boring.  I'ts now the car your Nanna buys.  I expect to see many Green/Cream color combos with zero tech options.

You'd have to really want the roundel on your steering wheel to buy this over an A250 AMG Line.

I thought only bad-taste charlies bought those.  Screams "I want a faaaaast hot hatch, I don't care how ugly it is as it has the right badge".
