Americans tend to be pretty dumb consumers, but I somehow doubt the badge on the bonnet/hood will be sufficient to convince buyers to fork out their dough for a front-drive based X1, even if it has AWD as an option.
Folks are gaga about the fwd mini . . .

So even though I know that God intended for any decent car to have power at its rear wheels, my expectations as to what can be sold to folks who will buy bmws in the future, as the brand is expanded to go from tricycles to the Goodyear blimp, are minimal.
