2012 BMW 1-Series Wagon

I love Spy Shots because it shows the progress of an automobile before progress is seen to the public eye. Or maybe it's because we can talk about something that nobody else knows and it makes us feel important. But doesn't driving a brand new car, or the first one in the showroom, and off the lot when not a single person has seen it on the road yet make you feel really cool inside? Well BMW wanted to give someone on a different driving level that satisfaction now by coming out with a 1-Series Wagon.

My fience last year wanted a wagon to tote the puppies around and our future son so I found an Audi A3 6-speed manual transmission because that is what she wanted. But when I showed her what this was, she said "I want one of those!!"
The style is there, the practicality is there, and with just under 200hp out of a 1.6liter engine, this little thing should pack a quick punch.
This second gen 1-series is almost 3 inches wider, 1 inch taller, just over 3 inches longer than the first gen and still rear wheel drive!
This is some steep competition between Audi, Acura, Cadillac and Mercedes for the Best Avant. I am really excited to go drive one from BMW now!
