For the third generation, the BMW 1 Series has gone front-wheel-drive for the first time.

It's available with a range of petrol and diesel engines, as well as a sporty 225kW 2.0-litre in the range-topping M135i.

The 1 Series is bolder, more sportier and will arrive in South Africa later this year.
