2018 BMW 1 Series F20 Rear-Wheel Drive.Officially - BMW has never expressed himself to the technology of the F20 successor, but for many observers, it was nevertheless clear: the BMW 1 series 2018 uses just like the recent MINI models, the four-door versions of the 2-series and the BMW X 1 F48 BMW UKL architecture and is therefore converted to front-wheel drive. Now, there is new reason to hope for all followers of the tail drive system, because in an interview with MotorTrend BMW development Chief Klaus Fröhlich expressed surprisingly clear for the upcoming series drive concept. Front-wheel drive is therefore the right concept for cars "mini up to the X 1", but the BMW's typical rear-wheel drive belong to all models of the 7 - up to the 1-series. Literally, Fröhlich said: "the one front-wheel drive is from the X 1 to the mini. The cars require only a different axle positions, bulkhead heights, hip points. Then we have the RWD cluster from the 7 series down to the 1 series.

The words are still not meant as a definitive statement to the drive concept of the BMW 1 series 2018, because on demand addresses Fröhlich of the advantages associated with the respective concepts and disadvantages: should you stay with the rear-wheel drive, you could offer less space inside compared to all competitors. He adds, however, that search customers can access the 2 series after lots of space to the tourer models.

But if one sort Customers expect space, he can get two active series tourer. The 1 series is about conquest sales, so it has BMW'S party to be right. We don't have to decide until the end of this year.

The bottom line, the statements by Klaus Fröhlich in any case are suitable to get the flame of hope on a rear-wheel drive third 1er generation alive. Which decision is ultimately made in Munich, is likely but not least depend on the cost - and larger quantities for the components of UKL architecture were certainly no downside here. If the BMW to remain "a real BMW" 1er but, the classic BMW concept is here to stay regardless of the cost.
