BMW 1602 & 1502
BMW noted that its saloon range (the Neue Klasse) left room beneath it for a smaller, cheaper model, especially as its engines were getting larger. So a shortened Neue Klasse platform was developed, using the smaller engines from the larger car, with similar styling. It worked well as an entry level introduction to BMW life, and was later developed into the racier 2002. Rare cabriolet was a bit of a trial version, the 2002 update was much better.
Standard tyre fitments were a 165HR13, with the option of 185/70HR13 on some models.
