BMW 1 Series Saloon Emigrates To Mexico After USA Refuses Entry
Auto News

We really do not know how BMW get away with it but time and again they do, if the BMW 1 Series Saloon wasn’t as over priced as it is utterly pointless (it isn’t a real BMW) we would have flown to America, entered illegally via Mexico and gotten deliberately shot by US border patrol, or as they really should be known, US neo-Nazi border patrol.

But enough about the US of A and the rise of neo-Nazi politics, the BMW 1 Series saloon (sedan) is due to enter the North American market, not illegally via Mexico to the USA but legally offered in Mexico. The BMW 1 Series Saloon was originally intended as a China only model, and it will retail from £16k or 489,900 MXN for entry level models. BMW 1 Series Saloon, Mexic Edition, interior, Dailycarblog The engine range consists of 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder variants already shared across multiple small BMWs, so nothing new there. So, the entry level 118iA makes do with the 3-cylinder, TwinPower 1.5-litre turbo engine, 6-speed auto which sends 136bhp and 200Nm of torque to the front wheels. Ultimate driving machine this is not, the performance figures are too pathetic to reveal. And a Front wheel drive BMW is sacrilege. BMW 1 Series Saloon, Mexic Edition, Dailycarblog The 569,900 MXN (£22k) 120iA, 4-cylinder, 2.0-litre 192bhp turbo engine sounds more uplifting, the extra power allows for an 8-speed auto and can rake in a 0-62mph time of 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 146mph. Standard equipment is OK, entry-level cars get fake leather interior, re-branded as Sensatec upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 6.5-inch infotainment system, a real leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED-DR headlights, 17-inch alloys and front sports seats. BMW has no plans to introduce the BMW 1 Series saloon (sedan) to the European market, which is fine by us because it’s too small to be considered a proper BMW. If you want a properly small BMW that is offered at a cheaper price but looks way more stylish, with equally as good premium fit and finish, then why not go for the Mini?  BMW 1 Series Saloon, Mexic Edition, side view, Dailycarblog
