Snapped again! BMW X1

2009-01-22 09:17

Here are the latest spy shots of the BMW X1, which will be a fulltime all-wheel-drive vehicle sharing its underpinnings with the upcoming Mini off-roader.

With the X1, BMW will take aim at SUVs such as the Toyota RAV4 and VW Tiguan.

The cabin will share a high degree of commonality with the 1 Series, complete with the latest iDrive and BMW’s signature swan-necked gearlever.

Like all new BMW models, the X1 will feature the Efficient Dynamics technology – the intelligent system that utilises stop-start systems, intelligent alternator control and other green initiatives to boost economy and slash emissions.

A full hybrid version is unlikely to get the green light on cost grounds – expect that system, based on that already under development, to be reserved for the new 7-series.
