The upcoming BMW X1 has been caught on camera during tests. The German small crossover starts dropping camouflage as the debut date gets closer and closer.
The new model will use the UKL platform but it will be few inches shorter. Even so, BMW might offer a long-wheelbase version, therefore, you can get the bigger model if you need to.
In terms of styling, we will see influences from the current models with a more rugged exterior according to some rumors. Under the hood expect to see a lot of engines from the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer as the new BMW X1 is said to be a front-wheel drive model too.
A plug-in hybrid version is also expected to debut with an electric motor and a 1.5-liter three-cylinder unit producing a total of 190 horsepower.
The prototype in question was spied in the Death Valley but we’ve already seen spy images from Europe as well.
