Eventually we will see X1's X3's X5's and even an X7... The way things are going now they are aiming for smaller SUV/ Crossovers which are more economical. To me the X1 to X3 is something like the Rouge to the Murano... X5 to X7 would be the CX-7 to the CX-9...

The X1 looks much better in real life: http://www.autoblog.com/photos/bmw-x1-live/1070450/

I'm really liking it now. The profile--and polarizing opinions--reminds me of the M Coupe when it first came out. I hope they give this car enough power--I can totally see myself lowering it and creating a more wagon-like vehicle.

WOW, now that is a REALLY nice crossover. It doesnt look as girly as the X3, and much sportier. Or is it only me?
I like it a lot!

That's really too bad, because the older silver prototype looks interesting but the live pictures on Autoblog of the golden one look like arse. It's like they were determined to shave off any personality, it's even more boring looking than a Lexus!

It's not bad. Maybe the production model will have added molding ala X5 to give it a beefier appearance.

I hope it does make it over here, as this is the first crossover vehicle I could conceivably see myself driving (in a couple of years, if/when we start having kids.)

Of course, diesel engine would probably be essential to make this one a winner.

If the silver one is the actual car and not the gold one, I keep my X3. Other way around, sign me up for ED of a X1.

The X7/V7 is dead. BMW announced they were discontinuing work on the big crossover months ago. They foresaw lack of demand.

I don't know where you're getting your info from, but the BMW comments from Paris were extremely vague about the details and launch date about this car. Also, the car in Paris is the gold one, NOT this silver early study. The way has been been presented (a concept car with no interior) suggests that the brakes have been applied and BMW will go very slow if not defer this product until it's primary market recovers. There are many millions at stake and no amount of marketing is going to help sell SUVs right now. It should be noted that Audi seems one step ahead with showing their new mini-SUV at Paris which will be a plug-in hybrid. Timing isn't great for them either, but the hybrid part gives them an angle.

I drove beside one of these on the A9 near Munich headed north last Thursday. I was covered in that black and white swirl camo that BMW seems to be using lately. It's chase vehicle was an X5. I couldn't make out which engine it had but guessing that since it was here in Europe it was probably a diesel. It's bigger than I thought it would be, not as tall as an X3/5 but almost as long as the X5. Nice looking car, from what I could make out with all of the blakc and white swirls all over it. It was funny, after I spotted and caught up with with then slowed to have a good look at it, the driver gave me a smirk and then slowed down. I couldn't slow with him because of the traffic.

I also had what looked like one of the rumored X5M's blast past me on the same road, heading south today. I was doing about 180 kph and it flew past. but I got a glimpse of the exhaust and it was the one seen in some of the spyshots. It's chase vehice was a black 7 series.

BMW has been figuring on a November 2009 sale date with deliveries starting in North America in early 2010.

At least that is the current rumor floating around.

We'll see.

13 cm lower, about 11 cm shorter and a couple cm narrower. Mainly it's just a lot lower than the X3, making it more like a BMW Allroad for the 1 series. See the attached review of a recent road test

Mein Auto: '07 black X3
I want one

I love my current X3 but when the lease expires in fall '09 I hope this X1 in diesel is available in the states. I think the size and engine options can be attractive for those that are eco friendly not to mention the BMW driving mechanics and some hauling utility. The pictures are hitting my sweet spot.
