Said to be officially revealed at end of this year, the new X1 will be based on the brand's new UKL front-wheel drive platform. All-wheel drive will be offered too for the higher end models.
Engine and gearbox options will be expected to be quite similar to what the related 2 series Active Tourer uses. All engines will be turbocharged as usual.
Eagle-eyed readers might notice the letter 'L' in model name. It is unlikely we will get the long wheelbase variant of the X1 locally.
