BMW X1 Caught completely undisguised

BMW's upcoming 2010 X1 crossover has been caught completely undisguised during a photo shoot thanks to a member of

Looking virtually identical to the X1 Concept which debuted at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, the low resolution photo shows the biggest change to the production model is a slightly reworked grille with additional chrome detailing which likely signifies this particular X1 boasts a high-end engine.

Speaking of engines, the X1 will be powered by a variety of naturally aspirated and turbocharged petrol engines as well as several diesel units. Eventually a hybrid version is expected to be launched, but nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet. Base models will come equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and sDrive (rear-wheel drive) while an eight-speed automatic and xDrive (all-wheel drive) will be optional.

The X1 will ride on the E90 3-Series platform which results in a longish 2760mm (108.6") wheelbase and an overall length of 4457mm (175.5"). While this should result in a roomy interior, it puts the X1 perilously close to being the same size as the X3 which is just 108mm (4.3") longer.

Look for the X1 to go on sale in Europe this fall with a base price somewhere in the neighborhood of £20,000.

I'm still not sure where BMW thinks the market for this vehicle is. Curious to see who they think there target market is for each. I'm not sure if there's room for the X1, X3 and X5. Unless they grow the X3 a bit. I thought the next gen X3 was out in 2010???

I think it looks good. I don't think they'll have any trouble selling them.
