2015 BMW X1 starts testing on the Nürburgring

We have seen the next-generation BMW X1 testing at various locations, from Southern Europe to Northern Sweden with its extreme snow and ice.

The testing continues Germany again and for the first time the front-wheel drive X1 has been caught on the legendary Nürburgring, where it has started endurance testing, where the X1 will be put through high-speed driving at long straights and sharp corners.

The next X1 goes through some big changes under the skin as it rides on a new FWD architecture. The AWD will be optional.

The prototype continues to wear plenty of camouflage, but it does look sleeker, longer and lower than the outgoing model, making it sportier and more attractive.
