Video: BMW X1 Prototype testing in Mallorca, Spain

bmw-x1-01The following video clip shows the upcoming BMW X1 in its familiar prototype make-up doing tests in Mallorca, Spain.

Indications are that BMW is not pitching the X1 against tougher offroad vehicles. On the clip the tiny SUV goes through its paces by firstly negotiating a gravel track with haystacks as apex points.

Later it takes a drive up a mountain pass, still on dirt. Then we see it on twisty asphalt, probably the car’s best surface. BMW always puts driving pleasure ahead of all else so that the car excels on tar is by design and not by default.

Launch models will be the xDrive20d which produces 130kW (177hp) and has an economy figure of 5.8 litres per 100km. There’s also the xDrive23d worth 150kW (204hp) and two entry level models namely the xDrive18i and xDrive18d.

BMW seems to have been battling keep the X1 away from spy lenses, so the company has decided to bare it all in public. Source: BMW via: Worldcarfans
