Spied: BMW X1 Facelift - Is the X1 Finally Destined for the US?

Face lifted BMW X1 spotted winter testing

Our cold weather spies bring us these pictures of the face lifted BMW X1 winter testing. With the X1 approaching the half way point of it's 7 year life BMW is updating the styling, interior and possibly the engine line up.

As typical with a BMW mid-life refresh, or life cycle impulse (LCI) the BMW X1 gets redesigned front and rear bumpers, upgraded interior materials and options. Unlike a typical BMW update the X1 is not getting new headlight shapes or new taillights. BMW is not changing any metal on the car so the shape of the lights will stay the same, but we expect to see some changes to the lighting. While the spy shots don't show it, an i8/F30 style cut off headlight reflector top and bottom wouldn't surprise me.

The big question remains, will BMW now bring the X1 to the US. Insiders have said BMW was holding off for the facelift to introduce the X1 to the US. That means we should be a few months away from getting the US X1 specs. An N20 4 cylinder 245hp X1 sounds like a sweet SAV to me! Who else would pick up a X1 28i?

Face lifted BMW X1 finally coming to the US?

I am actually pretty excited about the X1 if it comes in at a reasonable price point. The N20 will be a perfect pairing with the X1 and the fuel economy should be pretty good too.

Hopefully this can happen sooner than later! The US has been waiting for quite a while now!

I think the better half would really like this...she likes smaller ute's, but I'm guessing the price will be over $40k with any kind of major packages/options/etc. There's just way too many other model options out there in that price range, and cheaper, to choose from. Would love to be wrong, however...

Count me in!

With a 4-cylinder turbo and a 6-spd manual, I'd be all over it. If it's auto only, I'll hold onto my X3 another couple of years. Living in San Francisco and heading up to Tahoe regularly, this would be the ideal car. I would definitely appreciate the improved mileage that a 4-cylinder turbo and weight reduction would provide over my 2006 X3 3.0i manual (weighing in at ~4,000 lbs). No one really expects gas to get cheaper in the US, right?

This is basically the only BMW I'm allowed to buy. Wife cut me off from owning another BMW for the foreseeable future, with the exception of the X1. I need this thing to come to the US, ASAFP.

If it is a manual, I will order it for ED as soon as it is available. Of course it has been promised to the USA before.

Cheers

Chances of getting manual X1 in US is close to none (even Canada did not get it)

Manual? Diesel? Wow y'all are optimstic. Realistically neither of those is going to happen. I'll be impressed if they even bring the X1 to the US.

Correct, but no MT available - 8-speed auto is the only choice.
