2016 BMW X1 (F48) Rendering and Early Info

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Autobild get closer with new BMW X1 rendering.

In some markets, including the North American market. The F48 X1 is going to be xDrive only.

This rendering is very close indeed. The front is very similar, with a dynamic sweep of the headlights. A feature on the next generation 7er, 5er and new X7.

And although it is shown as the M Sport in this render. The front fascia aligns with the new X family signature but looks more sporty to appeal to younger customers. The rear incorporates typical BMW L-shaped units that wrap around the exterior X3-like.

The shape and character sculpture on the render conforms to what is hidden underneath camouflage and vacuumed plastic paneling on the current prototype.

The kicked-up hofmeister kick and rising glasshouse is carried over , highlight more by the dynamic sweep downwards of the roofline to highlight a more sportier profile than before.

The new X1 launches next Summer and will premiere at the 2015 IAA and launches early 2016. The X1 will be built in Leipzig , Shengyang and a new facility in Brazil. As a first for the Chinese market there will be an X1L a long wheelbase model for greater passenger comfort.

Engines will range from a three cylinder to a 300+PS four cylinder. Both petrol and diesel will be offered. A plug-in hybrid eDrive model will also be available.

The interior will offer greater leg room especially for rear passengers and a new dash that fits between the new X5 and Active Tourer with surfaces and layers.

One year later will be the next X family member - The BMW X2 available for the first time as a 3dr and 5dr.

That render looks rather nice, and its good to know that those next gen BMWs will adopt a more elongated sportier looking headlight units..definitely that will be interesting to see.

Im from Brazil and would never buy a BMW that was produced here. Cant see that being a good thing..even if BMW manages to keep its quality standarts..which i doubt.

That looks 1000x nicer than the current X1. This is going to be a great entry level X vehicle.

This looks so dope! Hate to admit that this is better looking than the last gen. From what i heard earlier was that the new x1 was going to be front wheel drive, what happened? Xdrive>front wheel drive

It is front wheel drive platform. With option of awd.

Looks like in the US, awd will be the only option.

X1 launch confusion

I am confused. Scott26 says, "The new X1 launches next Summer and will premiere at the 2015 IAA and launches early 2016.'

Which is it? Does it launch next summer or early 2016? Maybe one of those should be preview date?

This is an exciting redesign for X1. I love the idea of the current model, but hate the look.

Man, I hope the hood will look like that showing the closing line as litle as possible.
I like it, if it will look like that I will replace mine.
Any news in regards with the steering wheel? It goes EPS?

I like the look. Sort of looks like a pressed down X3.

Looks good, but BMW needs to offer this with a manual trans in the USA. That is the biggest miss with the current gen X1. Love our X1, but would love it more with a 6 speed and 3 pedals. Scott26...please!!!

Aha. I knew it couldn't be long. That's a B48, so I smell an S48 for the M2.

Ahhh... The lines are all starting to blur. This looks like the Compact Active Tourer a little bit.

Too many choices....!

300 Hp with a manual/AWD and this will be my next car. Hopefully it will drive sporty too not just look sporty. I think the new X5 drove like garbage but I do however like the drive in the current X1 for the most part.

I loved driving the CX-5. Just wished it had more power and a little nicer interior... Hopefully that's the X1. Or maybe Mazda will come out with a CX-5 Speed or something, that would be cool.
