New-gen BMW X1 spied image

The next generation of the BMW X1 has been spied with its camouflaged body while it was being tested out.

The German based automaker BMW is currently testing the new generation of the X1. The popular crossover has been caught on camera before, by our spy photographers, but these new images are showing it on a public road, rather than the previous ones which were shot in the cold climate of Northern Europe, a few months ago. The 2015 BMW X1 will come with an evolutionary design which will be inspired by newer models in the company’s lineup.

The vehicle in question will come with some plastic body cladding, with a sloping roof line, with a tailgate mounted spoiler or a dual exhaust system. The engine lineup is said to be shared with the 2-Series Active Tourer so we expect the 136 HP 1.5 liter three-cylinder unit, the 184 HP and 231 HP 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo or the 150 HP and 184 HP 2.0 liter four-cylinder diesel. The new X1 generation will be riding on the UKL platform, which is used on the MINI Cooper and on the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer too. The vehicle should be unveiled by the end of this year.
