And now to our beloved subject when it comes to new BMWs: the styling. Well, let's put it this way; the X1 does stand out but for all the wrong reasons. The X1’s concave body surfacing and fussy detailing bring to mind the X3 and X5 while the front end with the large headlights and oversize kidney grilles are apparently inspired from the new 7-Series. Overall the X1 is no beauty when it comes to design.
There are no pictures of the X1's cabin as we speak, but we’re guessing the interior styling will mix elements from both the 1-Series and X3. Technical details are also scarce for the time being and the only thing we now for a fact about the X1 Concept is that it is loosely based on the underpinnings of the 1-Series and that it is equipped with BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system.
Stay tuned on Auto Cars 2011 as we'll add more details as soon as we get hold of them. In the meantime, check out the gallery below or click here to view the official BMW X1 Concept teaser video.
