Well, the BMW X1 is not officially here yet, but that doesn’t stop BMW to still test the smaller SAV. Nothing surprising there of course, but when the X1 is spotted almost with no camouflage, then you start to wonder when the “real” official photos will be revealed.
But that’s another story, so let’s go back to the BMW X1 seen in these photos. First impression: looks pretty good. While the X1 Concept split my opinion 50-50 or gave me a hate/love feeling, the final product seems to be more appealing.
Could it be the classic BMW silver color instead of the “funky” yellow?
Looking at it from the front, it gives the impression of a 3 Series Touring sitting a bit higher, but that maybe just a false impression, since the X1 is truly a Sports Activity Vehicle with overall dimmensions close to the X3 and a raised-up rear-end.
The front-end is aggressive enough for me and anything more than that, will just make the X1 odd looking. In the end, this is supposed to be a fun car and not a “monster” on four-wheels.
That’s all we have for now and we do sense that the end of these silly spy photo games is near.
