    I drive a BMW, I will buy classic BMWs from now on, no new ones. This thing is a dog (no offence to dogs meant as all dogs are nicer than this thing, which goes to show how badly inter bred the BMW design is) a dog with fleas. And even the fleas can't stand it. Why O why have BMW sunk this low???? Where is the pride in their cars now? Such a shame

    How is this ugly? I think it’s starting to look slightly futuristic.. you guys probably just like cars that are boring and average on the road.. you guys probably don’t like futuristic cars lol

    Why do BMW have so much trouble with the 1-series, when this 2 and the 3/5/8 look so good? The front end of this is basically what I thought the 1-series would look like if all the little imperfections in lines and proportion corrected. Not surprised that most people in the comments can't appreciate the looks though, it's not the typical lazy sports coupe design you see these days with no character lines anywhere

    BMW made their 3 series oversized & totally screwed up 2 series with front wheel drive. Oh BMW...

    The front and back had to be lower and sleeker. It looks more like a BMW Gran Turismo model then a Gran coupé

      You know you have to be able to afford one before making stupid comments... I hear the aygo is cheap.

    My god this is so so ugly. Its as if they've hired the entire design team at Chervolet and placed 100% determination in overhauling for Americans and pissing off the rest of the world. Stomach churning side profile of a brick and a fridge.

    "27k, 15k more than a 1 series hatch". A 1 series hatch is 12k?

    You lost me at FWD. Sorry, BMW will definitely lose my business if they begin doing FWD. Not to mention you have to pay a subscription for Android Auto

    It doesn't suit the 2 series at all. Too bulky and looks squarely (pun intended) aimed at the Chinese market

    Not as obnoxious as the X5, but damn that is overdone! The bulges, creases, fake vents; what happened to simplicity, good proportions and clean lines? And those vents as the rear bumper! Looks like someone's stabbed in with a knife!

    This BMW designer's brain is definitely his second favourite organ.

    £15 grand more expensive that the 1 series? (making it start at £12000?) and £15000 cheaper than Merc CLA? (making it start at £42000?) 2:56 in the vid?????

    Am i the only one who quite likes it? I think in more modest colours like grey or black, white etc it looks quite good, especially with the 19 inch wheels, even in the base model. I think it will make the rear look a bit smaller, but i think its something that will look better in person as well. The m sport model looks good as well. Ill make my final judgement when i see it in person. HOWEVER, BMW really needs to get their act together with the tech integration, cause now its only apple car integrated but the doors can only unlock with android phones?? And tbh there should be a hybrid version. Todays world requires fuel efficiency, so who really cares how many cylinders it has as long as it provides good power. All these "BMW fans" lamenting bmw for coming out with a smaller model to capture a very popular market need to fuck off. They still make beasts like the m2, m3, m5, m8 and so on, which is all car people really care about anyway. The m235i still has a 4 cylinder with 303hp and 0-100 in 4,8 which is far more than the bicycles most people have commenting on youtube about how shit BMW is. People talk about all the old M cars from the 90's and early 2000's forgetting that BMW has been making small low power cars its entire history. Not to mention the Isetta. Sure i think BMW had its downs recently but I think they have been picking up again, but you cant just look at any new BMW and compare it to the E90 and cry about how it doesnt have RWD.

    I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that, but - how come the new 3 series looks good and the rest of line up look crap?
    They’ve got it so wrong at BMW lately.

    I love how people just blindly hate anything new. The new 1 and 2 series are completely fine, actually, they are quite impressive in terms of fwd handling. Better cornering speed than a Civic Type R due to it's advanced power distributing system. And looks are subjective.

    I’m jumping off the wagon of comments here.
    I love it and much prefer it to the CLA.
    The only thing I don’t like is the FWD. Even with the ARB control it’s gonna torque steer like mad.
    I have an X1 18d and even that does it. Overtaking in sport is almost dangerous.
