BMW X1 successor to debut in 2015

BMW is planning to replace the X1 crossover and its successor is expected to hit the market in 2015.

The smallest crossover in BMW’s lineup, the X1, is getting ready to be replaced, but don’t get excited just yet because the replacement is set to arrive in 2015. The German based automaker is currently keeping the successor of the BMW X1 into the shadows, but the guys at autocar.co.uk are saying that the next generation of the model will make its way onto the market in 2015. According to our source, the future BMW X1will ride on the front-drive UKL platform, the same one which will also underpin a few MINI models and the 2013 BMW 1-Series GT.

Using the front-drive UKL platform on the BMW X1 successor will dramatically cut down on production costs and the vehicle is expected to be cheaper than the current generation. The upcoming X1 will also be more spacious because BMW will use a transversely-mounted four-cylinder engine lineup and the interior space will increase. A Haldex all-wheel drive system is expected to be offered as an option because the future BMW X1 will share a lot of components with the upcoming MINI Countryman.
