BMW front-wheel drives models: won't negatively affect sales or perception, company claims

BMW believes the move to more front-wheel drive models will not negatively affect the brand’s overall sales or perception.

On the same day, our spy photographers spotted the next-generation BMW X1 out testing on both the Nurburgring and in snow-covered Scandinavia.
