The German fellows at had the opportunity to test drive the BMW X1 xDrive23d in Mallorca, Spain. As expected, plenty of photos were taken, but the most interesting one to us is the interior design shot.

There were many speculations around the interior design of the X1, many believe that it will be a combination between the 1 Series design with the navigation part from the 3 Series. Well, judging from these photos, while it share some common elements with the other models, the interior of the X1 is unique in its own way.

It features similar controls, but with the buttons arranged differently, also inside air vents have a more angular shape and the navigation screen is built into the dashboard. Overall, a simple, but stylish layout.

    It seen that it is the same one in my E92 (Not sure but is a 3 series sedan, with automatic transmition)

  3. Gil says:

    Nice fuel economy from the diesel version.

  4. Lance says:

    interiors of new BMWs are really nice. Makes me wonder why people admire Audi’s VW interiors. Don’t you have more pics please? I don’t really like the exterior though!

    Well, if they won’t bring the 1-series hatchback over to the USA, this will do nicely.

    But please, PLEASE BMW, bring it over with the 4-cyl 204 HP/296 TQ diesel engine in it! If you do, I promise we’ll do another European Delivery and I’ll always refer to as an X1 xDrive23d and not an “X123d”.

    the shifter looks just like the one on my E90 3 series.

  7. CPE says:

    to much plastic front bumper and rear. Inside looks okay, but the plastic on top of the dashboard looks cheap, we have to wait to see it en person before we can judge it, but from these shots it looks that way.
