<p>Alongside a new PHEV model, the X1 range will benefit from minor styling revisions to bring it into line with more recently launched X models, such as the X2, X3 and X5. Such changes are likely to be subtle, as this prototype sports minimal camouflage and appears broadly similar to today's car. We know it's the PHEV because of the mandatory &quot;hybrid test vehicle&quot; stickers visible on each side.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Expect more significant changes to the cabin, with a more up-to-date range of infotainment technology reflecting that of BMW's latest interiors. An increased feature tally should also mean the X1 will benefit from&nbsp;a greater breadth of driver assist functions, alongside refreshed materials and the option of digital dials.&nbsp;</p>
<p>It's not yet clear if the X1's existing line-up of two petrol and two diesel engines will change, but engineers will seek to squeeze out efficiency improvements wherever they can. Expect more information on the updated X1 to emerge next year, with a likely debut in the second half of 2019.&nbsp;</p>
