Next generation BMW X1 crossover spied testing

The next generation BMW X1 crossover has been spied testing in Germany. This is the first time the X1 prototype was seen being driven on roads unlike the last time where it was spied on a flatbed truck.

The next generation X1 that has been codenamed F48 will be developed on BMW’s new UKL1 FWD platform and is likely to share its chassis with the next generation Mini Countryman. This platform currently underpins the 1 Series hatchback and will also been seen in the upcoming 1 Series GT MPV, 2 Series and few other BMW models.

This new platform will help BMW take on the Mercedes MFA platform-based GLA compact SUV and the entry level Audi Q3. It will be available in front and all-wheel- drive versions, unlike the current X1 that is offered with rear and all-wheel -drive options. The new X1 is expected to share engines with the 1 Series and will be more spacious than the current model. It is likely the German manufacturer will unveil the new X1 crossover in 2015.
