BMW unveiled the X1 Concept at the 2008 Paris Motor Show to our bewildered eyes, and spy photographers have just surfaced with photos of the production version that do little to address our concerns for this littlest of soft roaders from Munich. As you can see, the production version will hardly differ at all from the concept, which means the swollen nose from the new 7 Series remains, along with all the surface pinching and odd details that we were so not fond of in Paris.

Styling aside, we question whether there's a market for another BMW sport or crossover utility vehicle, considering that the brand is already loaded with the X6, X5 and X3. The X1 also appears just plain redundant being so similar in size to the X3. That said, it will be built on the same platform as the 3 Series and offer a heaping helping of BMW gas and diesel engines, so it should be the Ultimate Driving Honda CR-V.

Yea, this one I don't get at all. But if it sells, that's what they made it for.

I have to say the new Merc GLK is a sexy truck for the price. I would take one anyday over the ugly X3 or even this X1

100% truth. I love the GLK and it's cheaper + more optioned out than the Q5. The X3 isn't in the same league with those 2. If this X1 can come in at under say $34K then yes, I'd say you have a contender... but knowing BMW... I don't see that happening.

I think the Q5 is by far the nicest of the 3.

Sad, Another ugly offering from BMW, once a company that stood different from others and focused on a driver experience, now just cranking out copy cat models relying on the brandname. I imagine it will be over priced as well, in a market with too many crossover, mini SUV type vehicles.

I disagree. Q5 looks like a raised A3. GLK > Q5 > >>> X3 >>>>>>>>>>>> EX35
