2012 BMW 1 Series Hatchback Leaked Well Ahead of Frankfurt Debut

Details and photos of BMW's next-gen version of the 1 Series have leaked onto the net, showing a larger and more functional 5-door premium hatch that sports the company's snub-nose grille.

According to the leaked info the car has a longer wheelbase, which helps adds 7 cubic feet of cargo room, while the interior gets a 6.5-inch (or optional 8.8-inch) iDrive display screen.

Numerous engines are offered in Europe including a three turbocharged 1.6-liter engines with 134-hp, 168-hp and 247-hp. Diesel mills makes 114-hp, 141-hp and 181-hp. With a standard 6-speed manual, the new 1 Series will reportedly get the same 8-speed automatic that will arrive in the new 3 Series.

While the previous generation 1 Series hatchback was not available in North America, after the introduction of the Lexus CT200h and plans by Mercedes to bring the A-Class to our shores, we may just get this front-driver as a close cousin to the 1 Series (or possibly renamed 2 Series) coupe and convertible.
