vBMW unveils the next generation of the highly successful BMW X1. As you might know, this is one of the best selling BMW vehicles, exceeding 800,000 units sold. And now, with customer's needs in mind the premium automobile brand refines and upgrades the vehicle and even releases a special lineup exclusively for the Chinese market.

The long-wheelbase version of the new BMW X1 sets incredibly high standards as it comes to interior space, luggage and of course, ride comfort. With these enlarged dimensions, the whole body design incorporates the BMW X model mould and the Sports Activity Vehicle DNA. And let's not forget the completely new power units which include the TwinPower Turbo technology for further refined driving experience. These features, along with the tons of premium standard goodies shape the whole appearance of the new X1 model.
