This year, the BMW X family has added a new member: the new entry-level SAV, X1. With the upcoming launch of this new model, BMW releases a series of photos showing the members of the X-family.

While the X5 and X6 are not due for a redesign for a few more years, the first generation X3 is ready to retire. The new, redesigned and improved model, will be launch early next year and will leave its entry-level spot to the X1, a vehicle available in the European market.

As you can see in these photos, the X5 and X6 front-end already share some common elements and even more when the X5 facelift is unveiled. The X1 is part of the latest BMW design language and some design cues are imported from the new 7 or 5 GT. Following the same path, we expect the new X3 to have a front-end close to the X1.

Group Photo: BMW X FamilySo let us leave you with a question: if money would be no objection, which one of the following X models would you choose?

  • Edox

    X5 right here! The perfect SUV from the X family

  • shinseiki

    great color!!!

  • Josh B

    X5 would be my preferance

  • Matt Stokes

    X6 of the M variety!

  • Petko

    I would choose X1. When comes the new generation of X3, I suppose it will be the X3.
    X5 and X6 are great cars, I admire them, but they’re too big!

  • dennis

    for me it would would be the one and only X6. and maybe the x1 after that… but overall beautiful pictures, beautiful colours and beautiful CARS.

  • Matt Stokes

    I’ve still got no love for the X1. It is still along way down the list of BMW’s that I’d want to own, roughly the same level as a E36 316ti. Not that the X1 won’t be great.. it’s just so damn ugly!

  • Radu Muresan

    Hy, I have been following your blog for some time, I really like the X1 it’s just the perfect size, small enough for crowded cities, and large enough to take the snowboarding equipment :) Hopefully one day I will buy one.

    • Horatiu B.

      The X1 will do fine in many markets. It will be a great urban car…

  • Parker

    X5M! I love that car.

  • Vaybach Khan

    x6 is freak…but more realistic i would like x1 from entire bmw crew…

  • Prussian

    in the side view the X1 looks much bigger than i had thought

    • Horatiu B.

      Merritt, yes, it’s bigger than it looks. Think of the X3, same size, but more muscular, better looking, more aggressive

  • Michael


    • Horatiu B.

      In my case….X6

  • Steve Vincent

    X6 3.5 diesel thankyou.

    • Horatiu B.

      We drove the X6 3.0d and that was a great car also…plenty of power and decent MPG

  • Ehsan

    I think that in top view x6 is very nice……….

  • Lance

    The most modern is the X6 and X1. Considering the fact that X6 is so much upper class, X6 is the one for me.

  • Ramon Juarez

    Tough….but I’m sure the new X3 will be great so an X3!!!!

  • TheLip

    X6 – TT8
