All-new BMW X1 Concept revealed early
BMW seems intent on diluting its brand image further with every new model they create. As if the X6, the X5 and the X3 weren’t enough, the German company has now created an X1 soft-roader, to be shown in near-production trim at the 2008 Paris Auto Show.
Most likely based on the equally-daft 1-Series platform, the BMW X1 is trying to break into a segment that didn’t ask for any luxury treatment. The sub-compact SUV genre is currently occupied by ultra-cheap offroad-capable Japanese machines with tiny engines. The X1 will no doubt combine a cramped interior with all-wheel-drive and a range of 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engines from the BMW parts bin.
Expect to see the X1 in production as a 2010 model by next year.
looks much better than X3…though small it looks muscular…

at least it doesnt look like some other make’s model. And doesnt look as bad as the 7 series. Beemers always look different. and its not a boring design either. flashy? yes maybe. boring and without emotion? no deffinately not.
dnt like its shape love x5 and x6 only
I think it’s crap. On top of that you’ll have to pay top dollar for it…not worth it…
its a concept. dont have to pay for it.
LOL! Thanks for pointing that out Boris. What I meant was if this car ever made it as a production model here…
that hood is so long, it could probably fit a V10!!! looks like it will have a V8 option if the production model’s hood looks like that.
