1-SERIES GOES OFF-ROAD
BMW X1


BMW

It may be aimed at women, but as our exclusive images show, the X1 will be a full time four-wheel-driver, sharing its all-paw layout, raised ride-height and plastic body cladding with the upcoming Mini offroader. Not that most badge-oriented drivers will take it green-laning – although it shares the same sized footprint as Ford’s Kuga and the Toyota RAV4 – expect prices for the X1 to start around 32 000 Euros. The cabin will share a high degree of commonality with the 1-series, complete with the latest iDrive and BMW’s signature swannecked gearlever. Like all new BMW models, the X1 will feature the Efficient Dynamics technology – the intelligent system that utilises stop-start systems, intelligent alternator control and other green initiatives to boost economy and slash emissions. A full hybrid version is unlikely to get the green light on cost grounds – expect that system, based on that already under development, to be reserved for the new 7-series.
