The smaller BMW models will eventually move towards front-wheel drive power.

BMW’s upcoming 1-Series is the first of six future models that will make the switch to a front-wheel-drive underpinning, called FAAR (Frontantriebsarchitektur). Some of the cars will be two-wheel-drive while some will be all-wheel drive.

1-series hatchback

The 1-series hatch will benefit from the new FAAR platform. The car will be available in three and five-door layouts.

2-series Gran Turismo

BMW will offer a FAAR-based model in Europe, which will most likely spawn a sedan-cum-hatchback.

2-series Active Tourer

The earlier car was the first dedicated front-wheel-drive model and it will make the switch from its existing UKL platform to the new FAAR architecture in 2021.

2-series Gran Tourer

This car will hit markets in 2021. There are plans to make the car more luxurious. BMW will also offer it with improved comfort and space.


The FAAR platform is key for the company’s electric car line-up. The car could come here in 2022 and is a junior SUV model, which will eventually replace the i3.


Having switched from the rear-wheel drive platform to BMW’s UKL platform in 2016, it’s natural that the X1 will now use the FAAR platform.
