BMW’s CLA & A3 Competitor To Start Production
BMW’s Concept Compact Sedan is a handsome small car that could very well penetrate a corner of the market that BMW has somewhat strangely ignored up to this point. This is the segment that is now dominated by the Mercedes CLA and the Audi A3 sedan.
“The BMW Concept Compact Sedan reveals the potential we see in a compact sedan,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, vice president of BMW Group Design. “The quality and intrinsic value…are clear signals of our premium intentions for the car.”
BMW needs this new car to keep some of its current customers who are looking at a 2nd smaller car in the garage or even customers looking to downsize as we have seen in Europe and even China.
Possible engine lineup will for sure start with the 3-cylinder 1.5 Twin Turbo and also a range of diesels and we look forward to a ‘M’ version which will target directly with the CLA45 AMG.
