Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Will be available in three variants.

The BMW X1 long-wheelbase has been spied completely undisguised in China ahead of its debut at Auto China 2016 (2016 Beijing Motor Show) next week. Needless to say, there are no special design changes for the stretched version. The 2016 BMW X1 will likely be available only in long-wheelbase version in China. The regular second generation BMW X1 measures 4,439 mm in length and has a wheelbase of 2,670 mm. Its long-wheelbase version could be around 100 mm longer.

The BMW X1 long-wheelbase range will include three models in China: 18Li, 20Li and 25Li. The 18Li will be the base model, powered by a 151 hp 1.5-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. It should have front-wheel drive layout.
