The Bavarian automaker is no longer using the RWD and switched into AWD for their SUV models. So, what does the 2014 1-Series Gran Turismo have to offer?
Although most fans and automotive enthusiasts are not in the same page with BMW’s decision left the RWD, but perhaps the 2014 1-Series Gran Turismo SUV could change your vision. Okay, we mentioned earlier that the Bavarian carmaker is choosing the AWD, but for the 2014 BMW 1-Series Gran Turismo, much likely featuring the FWD a.k.a front-wheel drive.
One thing that makes us a bit surprise because the 2014 1-Series Gran Turismo SUV could be expecting share the modular platform with the upcoming MINI Cooper. This was hinted by BMW’s Chairman of the Board – Norbert Reithofer.
As we quoted from autoevolution.com, the Norbert Reithofer commented on the sharing platform with MINI on last year’s Geneva Motor Show, “We will be extending the BMW and Mini brands into the small-car segment with new models and variants. For these new vehicles we could envisage developing a common architecture for both front- and four-wheel drive.”
