> New 2022 BMW X1 spotted
> Likely to be combustion, PHEV and EV versions
> New styling inside and out
> Will be launched late 2022
It's the latest BMW X1, which is a premium family SUV with five seats and a decent boot behind them.
This time around the X1 will get combustion engines, a plug-in hybrid model and a pure electric version that's likely to be called the iX1.
Naturally, this new X1 will get a new look inside and out. We can see from the image below that BMW's latest interior look recently spied in the 2 Series Active Tourer plus its latest infotainment system running the newest version of its Drive software will likely feature.
Interestingly the X1's grille design remains small like the recently revealed 2 Series – BMW hasn't followed its 4 Series' look. There's probably a good reason for that.
We can also see headlights that are close to the set that'll make production, which are similar to those on the latest 3 Series.
As mentioned, the new X1 is likely to come as a combustion-engine model, PHEV and EV.
It's unlikely a manual gearbox will feature, but you should be able to choose between two and four-wheel drive depending on the model.
There has been no confirmation on when the X1 will go on sale, but we expect it to be revealed to the public at the end of 2022, which should see it go on sale in the UK soon after.
It's difficult to know what the X1 will cost at this stage given it's so far off, but the current X1 starts from just under £30,000.
We'd expect the new model to start from less than £35,000, but stretch beyond the current most expensive model for the fully electric model – maybe to around £50,000.
