ACC BMW, the exclusive distributor of BMW vehicles in the Philippines, is poised to bring in the all new X1 compact crossover, slotting just under the BMW X3. The official launch of the X1 is set for January 28.

Meanwhile, back in Germany, BMW AG has announced a host of improvements and changes to the 3 Series coupe and convertible including a new range of petrol and diesel engines with more power and torque, reduced consumption and emissions thanks to EfficientDynamics, as well as subtle design changes and interior enhancements.

The revised Coupé and Convertible feature new front and rear lights, a revised kidney grille, a new front air dam, rear valance and side rocker panels. At the rear all red light clusters feature LED light bars and the re-styled rear bumper visually reduces the perception of height, again giving a more dynamic stance.
