1 Series US-bound with sub $30K price tag

If you’ve long been a fan of BMWs but never really had the cash to step into one, there’s good news for you. The new 1-Series coupe, already confirmed to be US bound will now reportedly start out at under $30,000. While past “entry level” offerings from brands like BMW and Mercedes (remember the old 318 ti hatch?) haven’t been too succesful, the 1 seems to stand much more of a fighting chance. The 128i will cram a respectable 230 horses under its stubby nose, while for $5g’s more, the 135i will give you all the 300 HP of the 335 in a smaller package. And to top it off, the car don’t look that bad either- start saving!
