BMW is working hard for next X1 model. If current model was not loved by some due to design or hard ride then there is a reason to wait for next X1 model.
Among new design BMW prepared some surprises for customers well at least these are rumors and we will talk about them today.
I like the modern BMW design, they are going back to aggressive manly look and this is good and will attract many new and old customers.
All curent renderings are speculations on how next BMW models may look like. Here are some renderings which at least show us where BMW is moving with design.
New interior design is expected as well.
X1 will get new B47 engines with 3 and 4 cylinders. B series engines are more powerful, for example the previous N47 xDrive 20d had 184Hp while new B47 will provide 190Hp.
The maximum torque for the B47 remains at 360 Newton meters, but it is now available between 1500-2250 rpm (previously 1750-2500).
Another important fact is that B47 meets Euro 6 emissions standards.
There are rumors that BMW will make a hybrid version borrowing some tech from i3 and i8 and as a result engine power will be bigger getting additional 100 hp from electric motor.
WHERE IS XDRIVE?
Some sources say that BMW X1 will be available as front wheel drive like 2 Series. This option will be available for Europe countries. For USA only xDrive option will be available.
It is planned to present new X1 (F48) in 2015 at the IAA at Frankfurt in September. Launch date is planned to be 2016.
