SPIED: BMW X1 facelift

NOT MAJOR: BMW's mini-SUV will be subjected to a slight revision in 2013. Image gallery

A prototype of the facelifted BMW X1 was recently caught by our spy photographers at a BMW facility near Munich, Germany.

Although the whole car is heavily camouflaged, no sheet metal parts will be changed.


Only plastic parts such as the front bumper and rear bumper will benefit from the new styling, as well as the headlight cluster, which can be recognised by LED daytime running lights instead of normal light bulbs currently being used.

The rear lights are also expected so change slight, although this prototype still uses the old ones.

The X1's engines, as well as its prices, are expected to remain largely unchanged.
