NEXT-GEN-BMW-X1-FAST-4

What we’re looking at here is a small SUV that could very well be the next-generation BMW X1, since it looks to be of appropriate size. The first-generation X1 made its debut in 2009, and was facelifted in 2012, so we might be looking at the next-generation that will debut in 2015 or 2016.

Perhaps the most interesting bit about the next-generation X1 is the fact that there are talks about this car switching to a front-wheel drive layout, sharing a platform with the production BMW Concept Active Tourer.

BMW already has an all-wheel drive system for its front-wheel drive cars – it can adopt the system used in the MINI Countryman ALL4, but there will probably be FWD versions of this car as well, just like how the current X1 has rear-wheel drive versions.
