Lexis = Lexus Was a long day.


But yea, I've got some thinking to do. I've seen pretty well loaded 328s with Xdrirve going for real low 40s, which is better.

I do like the function of the X1. We already have an MDX, so no need for a big hauler. It felt like a 328, especially with the sport seats, etc. That I can get new, with everything, 40Kish. It is interesting how some really like them, and others REALLY hate them.

Next X1 and upcoming X2 going FWD

http://autoweek.com/article/car-news...n=awdailydrive

New BMW X1 due next year; will spawn X2, plug-in hybrid and M versions

The second-generation BMW X1 is less than 12 months away, and from it will come an X2 version, BMW sources say. The X1 is a five-door five-seater, while the X2 is a three-door with a four-seat interior -- like a small X6. The new entry-level crossovers are due in June 2015 and will be the basis for additional future models on the company’s UKL1 platform. The latest Mini Cooper hardtop and recently unveiled 2-series Active Tourer use the UKL1 already. To further streamline operations, BMW is developing the new X1 and upcoming X2 jointly with the second-generation Mini Countryman and Clubman. They’ll all share the UKL1 platform, drivelines, electrical systems and chassis components.

UKL1 brings significant change in the X1’s mechanical layout; sources suggest the changes also mean more profits from the Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA fighter. BMW hopes the X2, for example, will cost $3,000-$4,000 more than the X1. Today’s longitudinal engine and choice of rear- or four-wheel drive is no more. The new X1 and X2 have a transverse engine layout and either front- or all-wheel drive. BMW shortened the hood, moved the windscreen forward and gave the roofline additional slope rearward. BMW says the new model looks less like a small station wagon than today’s models. The new X1 is also a bit smaller, while an extended version is planned for the U.S., China and Russia with a third row, longer rear overhang and bigger cargo area.

Several turbocharged three- and four-cylinder direct-injection gas and common-rail diesels are planned. Gasoline engines range from a base 1.5-liter three-cylinder in a planned front-wheel-drive X1 sDrive18i to a 2.0-liter four in the all-wheel-drive X1 xDrive25i.

The M version is meant to battle the Audi Q3 RS and Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG. Details remain scarce, though M supplier sources confirm the company is engineering a high-output version of BMW’s new B48 2.0-liter turbocharged gas engine. Horsepower should be rated at “more than 300.” It is still unclear whether the turbo four will come in the X1 or just the X2. Look for a 0-60 time of less than five seconds.

An X1 plug-in, gas-electric hybrid is in the works but probably won’t be available for the initial 2015 launch. Sources say it uses a driveline similar to BMW’s original Active Tourer concept car shown at the 2012 Paris motor show: A 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbo gas engine powers the front wheels, and an electric motor drives the rear wheels, with a combined 190 hp. The car could get about 100 mpg city/highway combined with nearly a 19-mile all-electric range.

IMO, this looks much much better than the current X1, which is x10

some interesting observations:

So based on the picture of the new headlight, it's either they included the new Angel Eyes from LED headlight equipped cars or the new LED headlights come with Projectors now?

WTF is up with the shifter? In 2015, everyone is trying to minimizing the shifter by going shorter and smaller or disappear all together. BMW is going backwards??

The new B46 4 cylinder engine has less advertised HP than the N20? (228 vs. 240). Interesting.

Navi is updated with X5/X6 style Navi. and the new 340LCI does not get it.... interesting again.

Too bad this is now based on a FWD platform. The current X1 is quite unique since it's pretty much the only one in this segment with a RWD chassis.

The Engine is mounted the wrong way.

But I think US will only get Xdrive, no FWD models. and 100% of the torque can be sent to the Rear wheels...

Also it is the Aisin 8 speed, not ZF...

It will for sure sell more than the Current X1.. that is all they care anyway.

M-Sport package in a FWD high riding subcompact crossover. Just let that sink in for a moment. It's too bad this thing will be easier to sell than water to Californians.

BMW is whoring out everything already....

M sport is least of their concerns.

The M-sport actually looks uglier. How much for just the steering wheel?

I thought of the same thing. For the very first time, i think the Sportline looks better than M sport.

Meh, even the M steering wheel is uglier than the non-M. Save your pennies and buy a Honda CRV.

I have that steering wheel!!

The problem with the standard steering wheel is the size and thickness.

The M steering wheel just feels better, not about the looks.

Well, at least it looks better than it used to. Still hate the X1, though. As my BMW service adviser stated it - "It's a $30,000 Roundel with a free car attached."

There's just no compelling reason to buy this vehicle, given the alternatives (absent an irrational desire to have a BMW branded car).

It makes more sense in your car than the X1 though. Just looks out of place in a subcompact crossover.

Beautiful, I love this thing. WAY nicer looking than the outgoing turd. Making me rethink a TLX or RDX, but I don't know how well it would hold up reliability wise. The shifter is the only thing I don't like about it, looks like a tractor compared to other BMW but I could live with it. It looks like a more premium better looking CX5 which is not a bad thing. Like a mini-X5 and better looking than a X3.

Hmm .....ya...the M sport doesn't look at much sportier than the sport line. And I don't really like the black bumper piece of the M sport at the back....may be it's just the pictures......

The black cladding along the sides of the sport line makes it look lower than the M-Sport which is flat from top to bottom, so it looks sportier. Same with the front bumper, getting rid of the black part actually makes the M-Sport look more SUV-ish. I'd take the sport line with any available M-Sport options like the wheels, steering wheel or trim.

Wrong. Bimski dildo shifters are annoying, if this is more along the lines of a conventional slush box shifter, its a move back in the right direction.

As kids, we probably all heard that urban legend about how keeping your eyes open while sneezing could pop an eyeball out of its socket. While that isn't true, a similar situation is happening with BMW SUVs that are now the focus of a recall.

BMW has issued a recall for approximately 5,920 examples of the 2018-2019 BMW X1, a small SUV. This affects both the sDrive28i and xDrive28i trims, and it covers production dates from Oct. 5, 2018 to Jan. 18, 2019. Presumably, vehicles produced after that date do not contain the defect.

The problem stems from the taillights. In the affected vehicles, the hardware used to attach the taillights to the body might not be built to the supplier's specification, and a bunch of cutting oil left on components might seep into the light housing and crack the attachment bracket. If that happens, the lights will become loose, and a strong enough bump might break the light free from its moorings entirely. Since the lights are still connected to the wiring harness, they shouldn't disappear on the road; instead, they'll flap and dangle about. Either way, it's a hazard.

BMW was first notified of a potential issue on Jan. 8, 2019, when distribution centers noticed loose taillights, and that's when BMW found that cutting oil present on the parts. Thankfully, BMW has not received any reports of injuries or accidents linked to the angle of the taillight's dangle.

The issue sounds like it's easy to fix, though. According to recall documents, "each rear lamp will be secured so that it does not loosen," and BMW did not explain the remedy further. Owners should expect to receive recall notifications via first-class mail later in March. Dealers have already been notified.
