Five-door 1 Series to get a three-door and cabrio sibling

The three-door model will reflect the five-door's engine line-up but rumour has it that a hot M1 is on the cards too, which will compete against hot hatches such as the Golf R32.

A cabriolet 1 Series is also slated for introduction later this year. It could be shown in concept guise at Geneva too while the production model is due for introduction at the Paris Motor Show in September.

Whereas the new 3 Series cabriolet will get a retractable hard-top the 1 Series drop-top will feature a conventional canvas top.
