BMW officially announces the 1-Series coupe and convertible are dead after 2014 model year

In a recent press release covering all of the 2014 model year changes for BMW, the Munich-based automaker has confirmed that production for the first and last rear-wheel drive BMW 1-Series coupe and convertible ever has ceased production as of August 2013 for the coupe, and June 2013 for the Convertible.

Replacing these two in the US market and all over the world is BMW’s all-new 1-Series lineup, which is based off of the brand’s first ever front-wheel drive platform.

Though it will be succeeded by the 2-Series coupe and convertible, though details on that successor are limited. The 2-Series, unlike the new 1-Series, will directly continue the mission of the original 1-Series coupe and convertible, by being a sporty subcompact coupe and convertible. Though the 2-Series isn’t expected to debut until the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, next January.

Updated design and new equipment: Fresh contour lines for the surround of the BMW kidney grille and redesigned lower air intakes reinforce the sporty appearance of the 2014 BMW 5 Series Sedan. The accentuated width of the rear end is underlined by an extra crease in the apron, as well as slim, sharply contoured and therefore more striking rear lights.

The 2014 BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo receives a modified front apron exuding presence and solidity. Its redesigned rear end creates a longer and lower visual impression. A three-dimensional surface design for the area around the license plate holder and a chrome strip in the rear apron add further depth to its dynamic character.

Xenon Adaptive headlights are fitted as standard on all 5 Series models, while Adaptive LED Headlights join the options list for 2014. Elsewhere, the side indicator lights are now integrated into the exterior mirrors. Also new in the BMW 5 Series are the Luxury Line and Modern Line, in addition to the popular M Sport choice, each containing select design and equipment features.

Customers can use the touchpad anytime the speller wheel is used.  It can be used to write letters or numbers for address input, dialing a phone number, searching for points of interest, etc.  By utilizing predictive stroke recognition, the system can interpret the user’s intended letter/number and will confirm the input with an audible response, making it even easier to keep your eyes on the road.
