This is the second-generation BMW X1. The smallest BMW SUV. And this time around there’s been a big change. It’s based not on the natively rear-drive platform of the last one, but on the same front-drive/4WD setup as the 2 Series Active Tourer MPV, Mini Countryman and so-on. This means a transverse engine, and thus extra space inside for people and things. BMW claims the boot has grown in size by 85 litres to 505 litres, that all occupants get better head-, shoulder- and elbow-room and that rear-seat passengers get much more leg-room, too.
The specific BMW X1 M Sport line, almost completely equipped, will be soon in our showroom at a nearly new condition available for test drive and inspection!
