2016 BMW X1 Coming in New Renderings

The guys from Auto Moto have recently launched some new renderings with the upcoming 2016 BMW X1, the SAV being just that close to its final production. We have no idea whose renderings are these, but they surely represent the car`s closest approach before entering production.

As seen below, the 2016 BMW X1 might seem to be a little different from the present X1 SAV, the model now coming with a rounded front, more sculpted hood and more aggressive front fascia. Concerning the headlights, these have also suffered minor changes, now being sleeker and complemented by the thicker chrome frame on the grille. The body style is also rounded up by the now widen air intakes.

Inside, the model will come with more space, as the 2016 BMW X1 SAV is now coming with a front-wheel drive layout, the same also seen on the 2-Series Active Tourer, which improves the driving dynamics and skills. Other similarities with the Active Tourer also involve the usage of the high-quality materials used on the seats, steering wheel and dashboard.

BMW xDrive Explained in Video

The news with the planning of the BMW German based carmaker of introducing the xDrive configuration on the rest of the M models, have been circulating on the web for more than a week now, and now it is time to tell you more about what the xDrive system is all about. But perhaps little words will be needed, as a video launched earlier today does the whole trick.

The xDrive system configuration is the all-wheel drive layout which sends the torque surplus at the opposite axle whenever the car senses slipping danger on the wheels. When the danger is sensed and the car starts slipping, the multi-plate clutch, which is electronically controlled, takes the vehicle back to the track.

The all-wheel drive layout uses a traction system according to which 40% of drive is sent to the front wheels,with the rest of 60% being pushed to the rear wheels, while the engine functions at its full potential.
