Spyshots: BMW X1 Undisguised

If you got bored by now of seeing spyshots, official or not, of the new addition to BMW's X range wearing that annoying cammo, here's something that may lift your spirits up a bit. As you can see in the adjacent photos this X1 is cammo-free, if you don't take into account the black stripes on the sides of the X.

Yesterday, when we presented you the teaser video of the X1 released by BMW, we wondered what does the German manufacturer has to hide underneath swirling clothes. Nothing special, apparently.

Being a combination between the 1 Series and the X range, the X1 boasts some elements which are reminiscent of both those lines. As you can see the headlights, fully visible in these photos, as well as the shape of the cabin to point to a 1 Series ancestry.

From its X3 bigger brother, the X1 borrows elements such as the positioning of the fog lamps and the overall aspects of the front spoiler. Unlike the rigid X3, the X1 looks a bit more "round" and boasts a swept forward position.

Looked at from the back, the differences between the X3 and X1 are obvious. It doesn't resemble the 1 Series either, as some may say the back of the X1 looks more like a not-so-edgy X5 behind.

The new addition to the X range is said to make its world premiere at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September. It is very likely thought that the German manufacturer will detail the X1 sooner than that. One of the most sought after piece of information, the price of the car, is still in rumor stage. According to some sources, the X1 will be priced in the 30,000 – 35,000 euro range.
