Car | BMW 1 Series Car

BMWBMW 1 Series has created a new niche for a new 2 door compact car known as the new BMW 1 Series, critics always say that there weren't any place in the market that is right for this car, but of standing for the second year it looks like BMW is proving them wrong, as a matter of fact this BMW 1 series attracts more peoples attention than the lineup of cars which is to be its competitor such as the Infinity G37, VW Eos, Mazda RX8 or even the Lancer Evolution, just take a look at the exterior and interior designs of this car then you'll see that it is far more superior than the said lineup, and you definitely won't be disappointed in its power for it uses the same powerful engine as of their 3 series, I guess the only downside of this car might be just the price.
