BMW X1 also the car that the last generation It has adapted to a more versatile platform that provides greater manufacturing flexibility and more space on board With him, along with his brothers built the series 2, Active Tourer and Grand Tourer, came ahead of this German- firm traction, but therefore no mark has lost its particular DNA and sportsmanship. Another example you can find in its new generation of 3-cylinder engines, moment exclusive for X1 and that not much later sure you will see in the future and next generation X2 X3.
