BMW's small X1 is coming in for an update, with a 2012 debut likely to reveal a light refresh for the crossover's exterior styling and new interior features.
Caught testing in Germany, this test car reveals that while the X1's main styling features will remain largely unchanged, restyled front and rear bumpers are likely to be the standout exterior changes.
With BMW's new 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine recently added to the international X1 range, new engines are unlikely to star - although improvements to fuel consumption and carbon emissions could be on the cards.
In Australia, the X1 has been one of BMW's success stories, with 2071 sales so-far this year making it the third best-selling model in the brand's local fleet, behind the larger X5 and the strong-selling 3 Series midsized sedan.
