The BMW X1 is an upcoming compact SUV manufactured by BMW. It will extend the current BMW Sports Activity Series model lineup, currently consisting of the BMW X3 (which will be moved upmarket), BMW X5, and the BMW X6.

Production will begin in Europe at the Magna Steyr plant in October 2009. It will not be sold in the United States until 2011, after production of the second generation X3 begins in South Carolina.

The BMW Concept X1, a concept SUV , was revealed at the Paris Motor Show in October 2008. The X1 is based on the same platform as the AWD BMW 3 Series Touring. It will be offered in several gasoline and diesel variations. North America will only get the 3.0-liter inline-6, the same engine as the 328i xDrive sport wagon. The naturally aspirated engine produces 231 hp and 199 lb-ft torque, and will accelerate to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds.

Now check out the first official pics of BMW X1.

I think the X3 won't go upmarket coz it's already quite pricey for what it offers. So may be this one will go head on with the SUVs like the Nissan Xtrail or the new (soon to be manufactured) Q3 from Audi.

The interior design is fabulous- just the combination of elegant and sporty!
