The new 1 looks so much more approachable now, finally a match for the A class I'd say.

BMW should bring manual versions of the 25 and 35i to India for those clamoring for a hot hatch.

Even the base 20d would be ample.

Minor visual updates, but quite effective IMO, especially the headlights. That said, I don't think the facelift is going to make any difference in the Indian market - unless they get the 120d within the current price range (which is quite unlikely).

To sum it up - small changes but with good impact.
