Chinese BMW X1 (F48) will be a part of the BMW Brilliance Automotive JV. The novelty differs from the current version by the absence of round fog lamps, another front bumper with plastic lining, a wider radiator, which is now a single piece.

BMW X1 will be going on sale with a different motor range and more powerful units: the 1.5-liter turbo for 155 horses and the 2.0-liter engine will deliver 214 hp.

Additionally, the former plug-in hybrid X1 xDrive25Le will be available with a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbo engine, a 6-band Steptronic automatic transmission, and an electric motor. In total, an installation develops 231 hp and 382 Nm.
