Main article: BMW 1 Series (F20)
The 2nd generation BMW 1 Series range comprises 3-door hatchback (model code F21) and 5-door hatchback (F20) models. Like its E87 predecessor, it uses a longitudinally-mounted engine, aluminum multi-link suspension and a rear-wheel drive chassis (however some models are available with all-wheel drive).
The F20 5-door hatchback was unveiled in 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and released later in 2011.
The M135i was named "The Sports Car of the Year 2012" by Top Gear (magazine).

The coupé and convertible of the F20 will be called the 2 Series.
