For example, Giorgi Tedoradze, a Georgia-based industrial designer better known as tedoradze.giorgi on social media, has imagined a fresh style for BMW's X-series. And, naturally, the automotive virtual artist decided to kick off the proceeds from the very beginning, starting the new CGI series with the unofficial third-generation BMW X1.
We already know the latter is coming for sure, as prototypes were spied on just recently while undergoing the usual Nürburgring Nordschleife trials and a little later (in May, in the middle of spring!) BMW itself teased the all-electric iX1 version during its final cold-weather attempts. Alas, based on the twerp, camouflaged facia, it might not look even remotely anything like this.
For better or worse, the first representative of this pixel master’s “alternative design language” X-series, the 2023 X1, now has trapezoidal kidneys, comma-styled headlights, and full-width slim LED taillights. Interestingly, the CGI expert not only presents us with the traditional front and rear three-quarters POVs, but also set his unofficial X1 design into the proper perspective by comparing it with the second-generation Mercedes-Benz GLA.
So, which one of them looks better, the rather extreme, sci-fi X1 treatment or the curvy high-riding hatchback-like GLA?
