Video capping the BMW highlights of the 2016 Beijing Auto Show:




And here's a look at the attractive BMW Concept Compact Sedan [more details / photos] in a new color Sunglow Metallic. It's currently on display at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show and previews an upcoming BMW 1 Series Sedan. Unfortunately, BMW is not expected to introduce this model outside of China.

Wow no 1 Series sedan outside of China seems like they're giving up a huge potential market no? So many A3's and CLA's on the road

BMW should produce this car. It looks amazing. Much better than the A3 and the CLA. What are they waiting for?

This could be like a base for an M2 GC !!

Edit:

What color is that? It's like sunburst gold metallic and Austin yellow had a baby. I like it!

I don't understand the reason why BMW wouldn't introduce such model outside of Chine if we have the A3 sedan and CLA selling like big macs, and we don't expect a 2er gran coupe until next gen, if at all..thats wierd.

Such a shame that there's no plans to bring it to North America.

If this truly isn't coming to the US, then we are at least five years from a sub-3 Series four door here (next generation 2 Series in Gran Coupe form). As others mention, with the CLA and A3 selling so well, it's hard to comprehend quite what BMW is waiting for.

Not sure if I like the shark looking front, but I like the concept as a whole.

If they had it in the US they would probably stick in a super small engine, stripped interior and lease it for $199/month.....
So we probably don't deserve it. ...

I agree, this car looks perfect as is, great proportions, reminds me of a modern E46.

They give us cars like the 3 GT and the 5 GT which while they have a market in Europe they don't sell well here, this car would.

On a side note my friend bought a 3 GT and he loves it, said its still awkward to look at lol but the versatility is awesome.

The Sunglow metallic is a cool colour. I see a lot of S3 sedans where I live.... This would sell like 'hot cakes'. Agree with everyone above. It is also the right size for the UK market and would do well in Europe!

I love the large panoramic sunroof. Reminds me of the all glass roof of model 3

I hope this doesn't turn out to be like the X7. For years Lexus and Mercedes were running away with full-size SUV's and it's only now BMW is going to enter this segment. I get it, $100k SUV's aren't exactly high sellers. But with a car like this which would compete with entry-level cars (A3, CLA) which from the looks of it are selling quite well, I don't see why BMW would pass up the opportunity - it's not like they would have to do any market research, Audi and Mercedes have already done the work.
