BMW has released a teaser picture for its new BMW X1.
The picture comes a day after autocar.co.uk revealed spy photos of an almost BMW X1 undergoing development testing.
The BMW X1 is the fourth model in BMW’s off-roader line-up, slotting in beneath the X6, X5 and X3. It is aimed at high-spec versions ofthe Ford Kuga and VW Tiguan.
The X1 is close in size to the X3, but is 112mm shorter, 64mm narrower and a significant 139mm lower. The next-generation X3 is also expected to grow in size, differentiating it further from the smaller X1.
The BMW X1 is virtually unchanged from the concept version first shown at last year’s Paris show, right down to the large grille and a profile that’s strongly reminiscent of the X3's.
The underpinnings for the BMW X1 come from the four-wheel-drive version of the BMW 3-series, which is not available in the UK.
