The X1 was lunched in 2010 and is available in a 2-litre diesel and petrol engine. there is no 4WD option and this Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) Is the cheapest BMW in the country. Its competitors are
the Honda CR-V, Chevrolet Captiva and the Mitsubishi Outlander.
If during the last photo session the spy photographers couldn’t get a complete shot of the future X1, this time BMW made it easy for them during what appears to be a commercial shoot. Of course the picture comes at no surprise: the production version remains faithful to the concept that was revealed last year at the Paris Auto Show.
The production BMW X1 will make its official debut this autumn at the Frankfurt Motor Show and be in showrooms by the end of the year.
Do you really need to cover up the X1 BMW? We all saw the concept at the Paris Motor Show . We all pretended to be impressed, even though we were all thought it looked like a slightly smaller version of the X3 (which looks like a slightly smaller version of the X5 .) So we also all know that by the time the car is on the U.S. market in 2011, it won’t look much different from what we saw in Paris.
BMW has released an "official" spy video for the upcoming X1 . So while we know anything we see in the video is genuine; we also know the we only get to see what BMW wants us to see. Either way, its still fun to watch the little SUV have some fun in the snow, and the engine noises are great.
BMW previewed at the Paris Auto Show the future X1 with the Concept version of the SUV. The concept is a four-wheel drive model and that makes sense because all current BMW SUVs are four-wheel drive only. But now BMW announced that the production X1, set to be revealed in 2010, will be offered in both four-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive configurations.
The decision has been made because the company believes that weight savings and efficiency gains will persuade buyers to accept a rear-drive only version of the X1. The company is expected to offer the rear-drive X1 with four-cylinder 2.0-liter gas and diesel engines.
To differentiate it from the four-wheel drive X1, BMW is planning to introduce a new ‘sDrive’ badge. This will lead to a complicated naming structure, with model names like the BMW X1 18isDrive.
Larger-engined versions of the X1 will have four-wheel drive as standard, and will wear the same xDrive badge as the X5 and X6.
