Unfortunately, the downside to this is cramped back seat accommodation, due to its rear-wheel-drive layout. To get around this packaging stalemate (and let’s face it, to spread costs for its FWD-based platform), BMW has switched to front-wheel-drive. But will it handle as good as its predecessor? Many skeptics have cast doubt, yet BMW is giving its best shot by using the automaker’s latest FAAR platform. Mind you, this … [Read more...] about New 2019 BMW 1-Series Hatch: What It Will Look Like And Everything Else We Know
