What can be smaller than the BMW 1-Series? Well apparently the 0-Series. BMW’s future baby will be a front-wheel-drive supermini, placed between Mini and 1-Series. The BMW 0-Series will debut in 2012 in both three and five-door versions as a competitor for the future Audi A1.
It will be built on the next-generation MINI platform, becoming the first-ever front-wheel-drive BMW. But besides dropping the rwd system, the 0-Series will crealy be a BMW: twin kidney grilles, front apron inspired by the 1-Series, a sweeping tailgate and subtle spoilers.
It will be offered with a wide choice of petrol and diesel engine, including a new version of the 161bhp 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbodiesel, which debuted as a range extender on the Vision EfficientDynamics Concept.
