Video: BMW X1 Prototype goes dashing through the snow

With Bangle gone, BMW continues work on the X1 very-compact SUV. Of course, we’re guessing that design was finalized before Bangle’s departure so you expect the production model to look very similar to the concept unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.

BMW has just released a video of the X1 prototype undergoing some cold-weather testing under very low temperatures and snow everywhere.

The BMW X1 will make its production debut later this year. BMW is expected to offer all-wheel and rear-wheel-drive versions of the X1 with the same engine choices as the new BMW 1-Series.
