FWD, no kink, it's a corolla

They managed to make an awesome series and then ruin it in record time

Rory gives a better overview in this video of the interior. Looks like they let folks come have time with the car in the UK

A perfect replacement to the e46 I use to have but with 118hp more than the 325. Sign me up. This fills the slot where the e46/90 use to be. The f30 got bigger and the g20 even bigger. All this hate from people that won't even be a buyer for this. This is a smaller sporty entry BMW for the young professional in their first job out of college. It gets them hooked on the brand and they move up to the 5er etc..

So BMW is officially making a front wheel drive automatic 4 cylinder car with no manual option?

Woah ...

Interior is probably the best in its class.

Exterior is probably the ugliest in its class. But people who can not afford and new BMW will buy the badge anyway.

BMW design team has been losing so bad as of late!!

A perfect replacement for the E46? It's front wheel drive and based on a mini platform

Young professionals won't buy a car like this in today's climate. They'll look at the other cheaper and equally bland options and go for them instead.

This is an absolute embarrassment to BMW

I absolutely love it. Every time I look at it, I can almost physically see the resale value of my M2 going up.

Bmw ///M, please do your magic on this GC & I'll take a test drive one day. I really want a four door at this size. I'll even forgive you for making it FWD if you can boost the power, keep the weight down, and make it handle like an Evo VIII.
I currently have two RWD two door coupes, and an M Roady in my garage. I really, REALLY want a four door GC. Oh, did I already mention that?

I thought the same thing. They gave the rear the X6 treatment. If I just saw this view, I would assume it's a Sports Activity Coupe or whatever they're calling them now.

Disappointing, no ridiculous grille like the upcoming 4 series!!! I cry foul, if big brother has to wear stupid looking pants, so should little brother.... This really hurts, first they put the S55 into the M2, now this one gets a normal looking grille... it's back to the bottle for me.

I couldn't disagree more. Within a year of my first job out of law school I bought a new e90 335i. I only considered vehicles with rear drive and there weren't many, now even less.

This car with a front transverse mounted engine would have never been considered. That engine configuration puts it on the same field as any other compact fwd based vehicle.

It's a travesty, but we should all be used to it after a few years with the X1/2. Maybe BMW determined that today's yuppies don't care about drivetrain layout, but I would argue you can always tell the difference in looks and feel.
