    As with most BMW #-series models... I think it's safe to say this 1-series will be proportionally less in size, options, performance and price than the 2-series above it.

    Well I dont mean "a lot" but the top forward "shark like" front fascia. The top tips forward as if charging, \. Not sliding backwards like /

    The back taillights also tend to fan out like the CLA.

    But in the end there is only so much design one can put into a basic shape of a car.

    I like the back design and taillights. But the front is awful, it looks like a sleepy person's face. Interior also is not a looker, classic (boring) Beamer interior.
