The fellows at BMW-web.tv have just put up a video with the BMW X1 undergoing testing at the Arctic Circle. Back in December, we had another article on the X1 being winter tested in Arctic Driving Center in Rovaniemi, Finland.

Judging from the video below, I must say the BMW X1’s handling is quite exceptional and it certainly seems to keep the assertiveness spirit that defines a bimmer. As you recall, the car will go on sale later this year and it will only be available for the European market.

There are four models available xDrive20i, xDrive20d, xDrive30i and a hybrid version, with the high-end xDrive30i being powered by 3.0L I6 engine with 272HP, and a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Pricing? Unknown at the moment, but it will be somewhere between the 3 Series Touring and X3.
