The baby Bimmer is one the most successful products from BMW’s Portfolio in India. It catapulted BMW’s sales figures beyond the 1,000 units/month mark last month. BMW, in fact, had to stop bookings last year to fulfill the current demand. Clearly, BMW X1 is here to stay in India.
Reports suggest that after the new BMW 3 Series, the company is also planning to revamp the X1 by the end of 2014. Here we have an unofficial rendering from TopSpeed of what the BMW X1 would look like.
According to the Topspeed, the X1 will focus on better aesthetics. It will draw its inspiration from the new 3 Series and the 5 Series. All equipments currently present on the SUV will remain in the new car and will and most likely the latest ConnectDrive technology will be offered for those interested. A hybrid version will also be offered in the future. In India the variant we can expect to see in 2011 is the sDrive 23d with a 2.0-litre turbodiesel inline four variant, which produces 200hp and 400Nm of torque mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
