We’re probably just hours away from the full set of the official BMW X1 photos hitting the web, but in the mean time, the BMW marketing machine released some “teaser” photos of the X1 on their Facebook page.
As a refresher, with the X1, BMW offers a new perspective as a compact premium Sport Activity Vehicle. It will be oriented towards younger BMW fans and most important, as an urban vehicle. Even though initially there were no plans to release the car in the U.S., sources close to BMW speak of the possibility of seeing this car sometimes next year.
BMW is going for a broad reach with the X1, which will come with the option of three petrol and three diesel engines from the outset. The petrol engines include two 2.0-liter models with 141 horsepower and 168 horsepower, and a 254 horsepower 3.0-liter six-cylinder unit. On the diesel side there will be three of 2.0-liter common rail fours producing 141 horsepower, 175 horsepower and 201 horsepower.
The first models will feature the BMW xDrive system, but in the future, a rear-wheel drive option will be offered as well.
Stay tuned for more photos and information!
