The German based automaker BMW is planning to unveil the X1 M35i xDrive on the North American market later this year.
Even if there is no official word from BMW on a possible X1 M35i xDrive model which might hit the United States later this year, the guys from xbimmers.com are saying that the small crossover is already getting ready to take on the over-seas auto market. Rumors say that the new BMW X1 M35i xDrive, which will most likely be known as the X1 xDriveM35i, will come with the same engine as the one found on the M135i hatchback, the 3.0 liter I6 turbo unit which is developing a total output of 320 horsepower.
Besides the 3.0 liter engine which might make it under the hood of the X1 M35i xDrive, the small crossover is also expected to come with an M tuned suspension system, upgraded brakes and a new aerodynamic body kit, which will make it stand out of the crowd. The same rumors which are announcing the debut of the X1 xDriveM35i in the United States are also saying that the model will most likely be launched in the fourth quarter of this year. Extra details on the crossover are currently limited.
