Not a fan at all. Seems way to small. Especially if it makes it to the US

i like it. I like the look of the A3 sedan much more than the standard hatch and I think this is the same.
Wife is fancying an A class for her next car and I'd much rather her get this instead.

Only thing I'm not so keen on is the gear stick and centre console

If you're talking about the two in the front by the doors, those are the microphones for the Bluetooth phone connection, my car has the same thing.

Gosh it looks worse than I thought. Instead of looking like a BMW product, it looks more like an imitation BMW design by some mainstream brand.

It is so coming here. Maybe not now, but soon. Bmw will claim Chinese success of the car is the driving factor, reality is bmw wants to eat audi's lunch, or mazdas lunch, somebody's lunch

I understand like the new X1 this is not using the ZF transmission and can't have the electric shifter but does that thing need to be so tall??? It looks ridiculous.
