WorldCarFans.com short description:
The fourth variant in BMW's 1-Series model range has now arrived with official details and photos being released today. But while the pictures speak for themselves, oddly enough only German-language information has surfaced. So forgive what might be a poor translation of the Cabriolet's German press release - official information in English is bound to surface very shortly.

BMW describe the newest edition to the marque's Cabriolet line-up as having characteristics typical of the brand and sporting a youthful, but elegant design, made so by its sleek profile, muscular wheel arches and pronounced shoulder-line.

Dubbed by the firm as the 'first premium cabriolet in the compact segment', the new soft-top 1-Series features an electro-hydraulic roof, capable of automatically opening and closing in 22 seconds - at speeds of up to 40 kph (25 mph). Exclusive options for the 1-Series' soft-top roof are also available. An anthracite grey option with glossed filaments allows for an interesting silver effect on sunny days, while the cabin is adorned by high quality materials and upholsteries. A 'class-first' in its stowage capability also allows for the safe transportation of golf clubs, or even two snowboards.

Touted as an authentic first rung onto the ladder towards the 'world of BMW Cabrios', the new 1-Series Cabriolet offers four petrol models ranging from the 118i's 143 hp 2.0-litre unit to the 306 hp 3.0-litre six-cylinder 135i, while a 177 hp four-cylinder turbodiesel will also be available.

An official English-language press release will be published very shortly, so stay with us for all the details. The Cabriolet hits showrooms next year.

And if you can't get enough of it - heres a video :p

I don't care if its a BMW and drives good. Its ugly as sin, that interior bores me and its ugly as sin. Horrible.

Good lord, who 'designed' that rear? It's ghastly. The rest of it doesn't really appeal either - it just seems awkward and high-sided.

From the front it looks like Hitler, yelling "Weeeeeeeeee!",
from the back, it looks sad, I don't want to upset it any more.

That's not saying much. It's about as exciting as a piece of celery, the 3-series cabrio.

Why would you have that when you could have the 3 series version? It's so long it's defied the point of it being the smaller BMW
