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

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

Development continues on the next generation (F48) 2016 BMW X1, slated for a 2015 release.

Compared to the E84, the F48 X1 features a shorter front end, shortened overhangs and a taller and more upright greenhouse. While some may mistaken the E84 X1 for a larger wagon, there’s no mistaking the upcoming F48 X1 as a compact SAV.

For Americans, it may seem way early to see next gen X1 prototypes, but here it is. As the current X1 has been in production in Europe since 2009, the next generation model should come in 2015-2016.

On the outside, the F48 X1 adopts a brawnier and stockier look, owing to a significantly shorter front end, shortened overhangs, and a taller and more upright greenhouse.

The next X1 will make the switch from RWD to FWD by riding on BMW’s FWD “UKL” platform, which will also underpin … CONTINUED

Time flies. Only 2 years after its introduction, BMW is apparently already preparing a facelift (AKA “LCI”) for the popular X1 SAV. As these images show, BMW sticks to their usual facelift approach.

The front bumpers will be reworked significantly for a more sporty and wider appearance, similar to the existing M Sport package. The rear bumpers will follow the same lead with a more ‘diffusor style’ appearance. Head and rear lights will get new graphics (updated rear lights not yet shown in these images).

It’s hard to … CONTINUED

This looks to be a Deep Sea Blue BMW X1 which was fit with an engine sounding like the new turbo inline 6 cylinder engine from BMW that is making its way through the entire -35i lineup (aka the N55). … CONTINUED
