MINI and the X1

Looks like the next gen BMW X1 is going to be based on a MINI just like the 2 sereis Active Tourer.

Quote:
The second-generation BMW X1 will debut in 2016. Built under the codename F48, the new X1 Sports Activity Vehicle moves away from the rear-wheel drive platform to the new BMW UKL front-wheel drive. An xDrive variant will continue to be offered as well. The BMW X1 will take advantage of the FWD setup which offers more interior space while retaining the driving dynamics.

Makes sense, it saves them overhead costs and any initial costs. Sharing platforms is the new mainstream way to produce cars. as long as they keep everything else just as good as the past i'll be happy.
