BMW he is working on the restyling of his BMW 1 Series which should be presented early 2023. The current generation was launched in 2019 and, therefore, it is time for an update. The new model was intercepted on the road during some tests and obviously the car still looks disguised. In any case, it is possible to notice some aspects of the design such as the tweaks to the bumpers, the grille and the headlights.
As in all restylings, there will be no major design changes but only a series of refinements, especially at the level of the front. In addition, new body colors and alloy wheels with an unprecedented design should arrive.
But if the exterior does not change much, the restyling will bring several new features to the interior. The new spy photos they also allow you to take a look at the interior. Although the dashboard is covered with sheets, it is understood that the new BMW 1 Series will be equipped with the BMW Curved Display we have seen in the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer. The panel will include the 10.25-inch display of the instrumentation and the 10.7-inch infotainment screen that will be able to rely on the iDrive 8 platform. Therefore, there will be multiple digital services available to the driver that will exploit the connectivity of the infotainment system.
