BMW has recently announced that it will be performing some upgrades to its X1. This may be to do with the fact that the Mercedes GLA and Audi Q3 will very soon be reaching the US and they may be concerned about competition. The biggest change looks like it will be a new styling of the front clip which may look rather like that on the new generation X5 which has had a change to the vent and bumper on the front of it.
There are some other style changes as well. There will be the addition of a new paint colour in a Sparkling Brown which seems like it could be between the colours of chocolate brown and seal brown. There will also be changes to the running lights as well.
It is expected that the changes to the telematics kit will be available globally as well but are unlikely to reach the X1’s in the USA.
