With the Paris Motor Show being just around the corner, the BMW X1 is undergoing more testing, getting ready for its official launch in October. Sporting the same black-white camouflage, the X1 seems to be almost production ready. And to use the information on the FEP that we just posted today, I’m almost certain that the car is in FEP Stage 2, of the Final Evaluation Pilot stage, so basically, minor tweaks are performed on the car, before it enters the final phase.

With the Paris Show starting next month, within the next 2-3 weeks, we should definitely see the car with less camo and then we will have a better idea of what this X1 is all about.

Before I posted the photos, I actually went back to our previous article, that compared the next generation BMW X3 to the X1 since I wanted to make sure that we don’t have them mix up. With all this pattern camouflage on it, I still have a hard time identifying them and I am still not sold on this whole X1 idea, nor I see the point of it.

    So basically, it’s a 1-series wagon?

    It’s more like a 3-series touring (wagon) with increased height and probably cheaper — I mean: more like 1-series — interior. Price-wise it should be around a 3-series touring.

    anyone noticed that the rear end in the last pic looks a little like the porsche cayenne? but seriously why does bmw need a X1?? doesn’t the X3 fulfill the market of the smaller 4×4? x3, x5m and x6 seems more than enough!!!

    i really think they should be focusing on other cars like the M1, and a new 8 series, and THE CS concept.. honestly the CS and the M1 concepts are depressing, it is like BMW is teasing us!! (oooh look at this, yup but sorry u have it!!) the new 7 series was a disappointment at first (to me) but it is kind of growing on me.. but come on!!!!!!! am sure u all agree with me when i say the new 7 is nothing compared to CS concept (lookwise)!!

    BMW PLEAAAAAASE i love u… give us a new M1 :’(( lol

    @kafkef: It will be based on the 3 Series E91 touring platform and it will be placed in between the X3 and the 3er Touring.
