After we brought you both a set of spyshots and a pack of computer-generating images showing the future BMW 1 Series, here are some new photos with the new generation BMW model. Expected to arrive sometime in 2011, the car will feature several exterior enhancements, including the front fascia which is now boasting restyled foglights - no longer under the spoiler as in the current version.

Overall, there's not much to talk about the exterior look of the car as BMW has always used this annoying camouflage that manages to hide the most important parts of the car. Nevertheless, the future 1 Series will rely on an upgraded line of engines, with smaller displacements units a very likely scenario.

Especially introduced to tackle the economic recession and to meet people's demand for better efficiency and reduced emissions, the future powerplants, likely to range from 1.4-liter to 3.0-liter, will be manufactured through an alliance between the German manufacturer and the PSA Group. Turbocharged units will join the series too. Besides these green engines, hybrids are also on the table.

Additionally, the new BMW 1 Series will feature a shooting-brake two-door wagon or hatch architecture that would also allow the parent company to bring the car in the United States as well.

A new thing worth mentioning is that these new spyshots are also the first sign that the 2011 1 Series might also include an xDrive version as the car shown in the pics feature some kind of caps on the wheels, similar to the ones we've seen on other spied xDrive vehicles launched by BMW.
