It seems like automakers are getting the hang of using social media to spread the word about their products. As such, the BMW X1 Facebook page has 926 fans, which is why BMW decided to release teaser shots of the upcoming compact SUV on the people-connecting website to keep fans excited.
When you think of BMW X1, think of Volkswagen’s Tiguan in terms of size. It’s slightly smaller than the X3 and will seat 4 individuals comfortably (although a 5th can be cramped in somewhere in the middle).
While we’re not sure which model year designation the X1 will carry when it hits markets early next year (most likely 2010), we do know that it will be offered in three different variants.
Kicking of the lineup is the xDrive20d, which is powered by a 177-hp diesel engine. Second is the xDrive23d, which is powered boy 204-hp turbodiesel. The xDrive28i gasoline model is powered by a 3.0 6-cylinder making 231-hp and a 199 lb-ft of torque. It will be the only model offered in North America.
We’re expecting BMW to drop all the high-res shots and details very soon.
