• BMW X1 - official teasers revealed

BMW has just revealed the first teaser images of the long awaited X1 compact crossover. This can mean only one thing: the official launch will be happening sometime soon.

As you can see from these images of the grille, headlights and the taillights, BMW has stayed true to the shape of their concept, and the production version of the X1 should be everything we fell in love with back at the Paris Auto Show.

We don’t know much about the future X1, except that it will be rear wheel driven and that BMW will offer a variety of four cylinder power plants. Now the German automaker has already teased us with some official spy shots of the X1 wearing the elusive swirly camouflage. So when will this torture ever, we might just have to wait until the X1 hits the dealers on June 23 to find out for ourselves.

The disadvantage of a rear wheel drive is that the faster one goes, the more prone the driver to oversteer or to fishtail. It also takes so much interior space.

I think that X1 would really fit as a rear wheel drive because this means that it would be able to accommodate a more powerful engine. Its also safer because it has a better handling especially in dry conditions and an even weight distribution.
