The Nurburging is open for manufacturer testing and the X1 has returned for more performance development.

The F48 X1 rides on BMW’s UKL platform and will come in both FWD and AWD models while engine offerings will range from 3 to 4 cylinders.

Our 2016 model map shows that the US will receive both a sDrive25i and xDrive25i. Production of the sDrive25i begins in November 2015 and xDrive25i in July.

It doesn’t seem like the X1 gets much love in the aftermarket tuning department, but this one certainly did from its owner.

Increasingly, China has become a source of undisguised new BMW models. The last F48 X1 exposure revealed the front end and headlights, but now we have the full monty. These new photos reveal nearly the entire car.

The X1 has been slowly dropping its camouflage over the last year and it may finally have lost all its front end covering in this purported image of a production X1. Seen here is half of the front fascia, giving us an unobstructed look at the final bumper and headlight design. An interior photo was posted along with the exterior pic, matching the X1 interior we’ve previously shared with you, and providing further credibility to the exterior photo being that of the upcoming new … CONTINUED

BMW X1 (F48) Drop Heavy Camouflage

The upcoming 2015 F48 X1 has dropped its heavy camouflage to reveal much more exterior styling details, as well as much of the production headlights and tail lights.

As the previous spy photos previewed, the F48 X1 front end looks more sport-utility than the current X1 and the high cutline of the current X1 now meets the kidney grilles, a trend we’re seeing in all future models we’ve spied (G11 7 Series / G30 5 Series).

The F48 X1 will make a switch from RWD … CONTINUED

The F48 X1 will also make a departure from the current X1 by making the switch from RWD to FWD. It’s been built on BMW’s FWD “UKL” platform and should be offered in both FWD and AWD models. The UKL platform will also underpin the next generation 1 Series.

Why the switch to FWD? Typically, FWD allows for better packaging, less costly production and more interior space.

There are rumors that the X1 will be xDrive only in some markets, including for North America. Engines will … CONTINUED

It all started with an X. This letter was first used as a model designation for a BMW automobile as early as in the mid-1980s to indicate that it featured four-wheel drive technology. The car’s dual symmetry was the ideal allegory for the transmission of drive torque to all four wheels. 15 years ago, the letter X became the symbol of an entirely new vehicle category and, at the same time, of a very special form of driving pleasure. The BMW X5 made its … CONTINUED

We just got the first camouflage-free look at the next BMW X1′s front fascia (minus headlights) during hot-weather tests in the California desert.

Up until now, all X1s have had their entire front fascias covered in plastic panels, hiding all signs of its true front-end design treatment. Those panels impede airflow, however, so the test team wanted to get an accurate reading on the cooling performance of the production front-end in the 120-degree heat. They thought they could get away with a quick, camo-free run….but … CONTINUED
