In just a few months, BMW will unveil their second generation X1 SAV. With lots of test mules running around, the X1 has been slowly starting to show its design lines and proportions. Lately, there have been several occasions where the BMW F48 X1 was caught in full testing wardrobe, cleverly disguising the design elements. Earlier this week, the Munich-based photographer Christian Wimmer caught an X1 with full test camouflage on the streets of Munich. Recently some leaked images from China fully revealed the X1.

The new F48 X1 will make use of BMW’s first front-wheel drive platform which can be configured to offer an all-wheel drive option as well. To gain space and also to feature more attractive and well proportioned design lines, the BMW X1 will take advantage of the FWD setup which offers more interior space and versatility. While the first X1 was mostly popular thanks to its attractive price point and fun driving dynamics, the second-gen X1 will stand out on the road with its sporty and muscular stance, along with a series of standard features seen in other BMW series models.

BMW designers have worked hard to give the car a more premium look by using the latest design techniques as seen in the F16 X6 or even the new X4.
