With the BMW X1 proving to be a resounding sales success, it is no surprise the company is reportedly considering an X1 M.

With the BMW X1 proving to be a resounding sales success, it's no surprise the company is reportedly considering an X1 M.

While nothing is official, the car would likely feature an aggressive body kit, a sport-tuned suspension, and a high performance braking system.

Power would reportedly be provided by a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops 315 hp (235 kW / 320 PS) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. It would be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission which would enable the X1 M to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in approximately five seconds.

No word on when the crossover could be launched, but BMW is currently focused on introducing the redesigned M5 and M6.
