More Info on the Forthcoming BMW X1
First of all, the tested X1 boasted a 3.0-liter engine that developed a maximum output of 272 horsepower, but there’s no word of other engine choices that may reach the future lineup. However, BMW will produce four different models, namely the xDrive20i, xDrive20d, xDrive30i plus a hybrid version, which suggests that BMW may consider rolling out a number of different other engine options.
The transmission came under the form of a 6-speed automatic unit which, with the help of the aforementioned engine, provided a driving experience much like the one of the 1 Series and 3 Series, the same source wrote. In addition, a bunch of features of the new models are basically inspired by these two models, including the dashboard, the steering wheel and the navigation system that are quite similar to the ones brought by the 1 and 3 Series.
For those of you who missed the news, the first BMW X1 Concept was displayed in October at the Paris Auto Show, with the mass-production model expected to be showcased at the forthcoming Frankfurt Auto Show.
