New 1 Series will be available first in three and five door variants, featuring a longer wheelbase and wider track than the current model when it arrives later this year.
The styling will be similar to the rest of the new BMW range. The squared-off angel eyes look very similar to those found on the 5 Series GT and the bonnet is more upright than on the current model, reminding us the new 5 Series. The new 1 Series will also have side indicators mounted in the side mirrors.

CRASH TEST BMW 1-Series 2012
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy
readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of driver and
passenger. BMW showed that a similar level of protection would be provided
for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating
positions. In the side barrier test, the car provided adequate protection
for the chest and good protection for other body areas. In the more severe
side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak protection
for the chest area. The front seats and head restraints provided marginal
protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Based on dummy readings in the frontal and side impacts, the 1 Series
scored maximum points for protection of the 3 year infant. Forward movement
of that dummy in the frontal impact was not excessive and, in the side
impact, both dummies were properly contained within the shells of their
restraints, minimising the likelihood of dangerous head contacts. A switch
is available as an option which allows the passenger airbag to be disabled,
allowing a rearward facing restraint to be used in that seating position.
Information provided to the driver about the status of the airbag does not
meet Euro NCAP's requirements. The dangers of using a rearward facing seat
in that position without disabling the airbag are clearly explained in a
In all areas likely to be struck by a child's head, the bonnet offered good
protection and the car scored maximum points for this part of the
assessment. For an adult's head, protection was predominantly poor,
although some areas tested were good. The bumper offered good protection to
pedestrians' legs in all areas, and scored maximum points. However, the
front edge of the bonnet was poor and scored no points.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the 1 series and met
Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is provided for the
driver, passenger and rear positions. A speed limitation device is
available as an option but did not meet Euro NCAP's fitment requirements,
so was not assessed.

hatchback that's fun to drive."
► Ferrari FF at the top of Plan De Corones at 2 350 meter
Maranello, 10 March 2011 -- Only a couple of days to go for the start of
the FF tests by the press, where journalists from all over the world will
drive the new V12 Ferrari for the first time on the roads of the Südtirol
region: two Ferrari four-seaters with four-wheel drive have been taken to
the top of Plan De Corones in the Dolomites at 2,350 metres, where a
special ice and snow track has been prepared for the cars, located at the
start of the vast ski area, where the journalists will test the cars under
The cars have been taken to this area, which can only be reached by the
ski-lifts, with a CH-47 Chinook transport helicopter from Viterbo's 1st
Regiment Antares and the help of three Agusta 205 helicopters from the 4th
Regiment Altair from the Italian air force in Bolzano. The cars were loaded
into the transport helicopters and flown around the Dolomites, before they
were carefully unloaded. In this much-anticipated event, with headquarters
in Brunico, almost 200 journalists from the world's most important
publications will participate over the next four weeks. After the great
feedback generated by the FF at the Geneva car show now this revolutionary
12-cylinder from Ferrari is finally debuting on the road.
Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race - autocar.co.uk
Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8
track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in
a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders?
There's the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the
most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne
power-to-weight ratio. Then there's the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with
748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but
all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it's wet?
Autocar, the world's leading motoring magazine and website, delivers
industry-leading news, the most in-depth car reviews and opinion from our
team of experts. Our presenters include some of the world's top motoring
journalists who have unrivalled access to the world's fastest, rarest, most
exotic and most exciting cars on some of the world's best roads and race
Can a supercar beat a superbike? Can a Audi A1 outrun a Nissan GT-R on a
wet circuit? Can a Porsche 911 slay a Corvette on the drag strip? Autocar
pitches the giants of the performance car world against each other to
deliver the all-important verdict.

BMW 1 Series hatchback 2004 - 2011 review - CarBuyer
Launched to prove that BMW could build a car to compete with the Volkswagen
Golf, the 1 Series is a car with styling that you'll either love or hate.
It's quite cramped in the rear and the boot is smaller than most rivals,
but cabin quality is good, the driving position excellent and the range of
engines is the very best available. It's the only rear-wheel-drive compact
hatchback available, which means it has more focus on driving fun than its
rivals. Diesel versions are particularly impressive, as they are quick and
