BMW’s X1, which has proved to be a successful vehicle in Europe, will now be coming to America. Unveiled at the New York International Auto Show this week was the American version of the BMW X1.
The BMW X1 is a smaller crossover Sport Activity Vehicle that has been selling at a great pace in European markets where gas is expensive and where most vehicles on the road are smaller compact cars. The X1 has earned a reputation of being a fuel efficient and light crossover vehicle.
There is a lot of potential with the American version of the X1. It will be one of the smallest vehicles in its class, even smaller than its sibling, the BMW X3. BMW believes that American consumers will be more willing to downsize their vehicles with the high price of gas, and the BMW X1 is the perfect combination of size, efficiency, and performance.
