BMW this week unveiled its all-new 1 Series.

Riding on a transverse front-wheel-drive architecture, the new 1 Series will likely rankle the cankles of the BMW elitists who believe everything should be rear-drive.

But looking at the whole of what's offered, the new 1er looks to be a proper Bimmer with the latest tech and some decent looks.

On the tech front, the new 1 Series picks up the latest iteration of BMW's iDrive infotainment system.

Both screens can be optioned as large as 10.25 inches, and a 9.2-inch head-up display is available, too.

Check the right options boxes, and the 1 Series will be able to navigate parallel and perpendicular parking itself.
