Photos of the BMW X1

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 front view

The face is clearly that of a BMW.

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 front quarter view

The new BMW X1 a thoroughly conventional compact crossover with BMW cues. What more is there to say?

The transverse powertrain forces some additional front overhang, but not much. Taller.

BMW X1 Photos: 2013 BMW X1 side view

The proportions of the 2013-2015 BMW X1 were those of a rear-drive hatchback with a slight lift.

Another compact crossover with BMW cues--from Hyundai.

BMW X1 Photos: Audi Q3 side view

The Audi Q3 looks much like a Q5 with the proportions of a cartoon car.

BMW X1 Photos: Mini Clubman side view

The new Clubman is a foot longer than the old one. Same wheelbase as the X1, but 7 inches lower.

BMW cues abound. Plenty of glass for outward visibility.

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 interior

Light beige doesn't do the X1's interior any favors. Arfully U-shaped center console trim.

If you've been inside one recent Audi, you've been inside all of them.

BMW X1 Photos: Mini Clubman interior

The new Clubman's interior is the best designed, best finished yet in a Mini. Very nice.

Could you tell this was a BMW interior without the roundel on the steering wheel? Of course.

The X1's display perches atop a slender instrument panel, where it's safest and easiest to view.

Good support from seat back. Cushion on the small side, and looks odd. Get the sport seats.

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 rear seat

Plenty of room for heads and feet in back seat. Slides, reclines, returns to fully upright position.

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 cargo area

Class-leading cargo space with the rear seat up. Ten more cubes than the old X1.

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 cargo area seats folded

Class-leading cargo space with the rear seat down.

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 under floor storage compartment

Plus a large storage compartment beneath the floor.

BMW X1 Photos: BMW X1 engine

The cover lets you know this isn't the identical engine in the latest JCW Minis.

Horrors: a sideways powertrain, in a BMW. Brand loyalists are aghast.
