In today’s day and age, the Internet has become the best place to advertise your products. It’s free, it’s got tremendous traffic, and communication travels so fast you can reach somebody from halfway across the world in a matter of seconds.
One car manufacturer that has taken advantage of the many booms the internet provides is BMW, and it has done so by invading social networking sites. That’s right. If you think Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube are just means of wasting time on-line; guess again.
BMW will bring the X1 SUV to the Frankfurt Motor Show, but for now we can only admire images of the small SUV. Looking identical to the X1 Concept, the production version will go on sale in Europe by the end of the year followed by sales in the North American market to begin in early 2011.
Placed below the X3 in the lineup, the BMW X1 will be powered by a wide range of engines, including a 2.0 Liter four cylinder making 143 HP or 170 HP and a 3.0 Liter straight-six pumping out 265 HP. The diesel line-up will include a 2.0 Liter 4 cylinder engine producing either 143 HP, 177 HP or 204 HP.
The smallest SUV in BMW’s line-up made today its official debut. Set for a first appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the new BMW X1 will go on sale in Europe by the end of the year, while in the USA it has been confirmed for 2011.

We’re not sure what BMW is trying to do here; first they released a series of official spy shots and then a few official teasers, but what are they trying to do with this image? At least before BMW was giving us a glimpse of the future crossover, but this is just ridiculous. Not that there is anything beach going blonds posing in front of the camera.
When the BMW X1 CUV finally goes on sale, it will be available with four-wheel drive followed shortly after by a rear-wheel drive model. The base power plant is expected to be a 2.0 Liter four cylinder making 177 HP. BMW will also make diesel powered versions available as well. When the X1 does hit showrooms, it will be competing directly against vehicles like the Mercedes Benz GLK.
After teasing the world with their “official spy shots”, the German automaker, BMW has just released an official video of the familiar camouflaged X1 compact crossover that was seen having some fun in the mud in Majorca.

BMW has just revealed the first teaser images of the long awaited X1 compact crossover. This can mean only one thing: the official launch will be happening sometime soon.
As you can see from these images of the grille, headlights and the taillights, BMW has stayed true to the shape of their concept, and the production version of the X1 should be everything we fell in love with back at the Paris Auto Show.
We don’t know much about the future X1, except that it will be rear wheel driven and that BMW will offer a variety of four cylinder power plants. Now the German automaker has already teased us with some official spy shots of the X1 wearing the elusive swirly camouflage. So when will this torture ever, we might just have to wait until the X1 hits the dealers on June 23 to find out for ourselves.
Journalists from around the globe have been invited to Majorca Spin in order to get behind the wheel of the new baby Bimmer crossover, the X1. So now Top Speed finally has the chance to show you the "official spy shots;" even though you may have seen it somewhere else before.
When it goes on sale, the BMW X1 will be available with four-wheel drive; rear-wheel should come shortly after. The pictures show a 2.0 liter four cylinder model making 177 HP. This xDrive23d prototype is most definitely having some fun in the mud with its M Sport Package.
It will be interesting to see how the smallest BMW SUV will fare against luxury compacts like the mini G Wagon, Mercedes Benz GLK. It will also be interesting to see if the box car craze can carry over into a higher price range.
BMW will unveil the production versions of their X1 crossover and 5-Series GT performance machine at the BMW Plant in Leipzig, Germany on June 23rd. Although most of the press materials for the 5 Series GT is already widely available, the car is awaiting an official debut.
The X1 CUV has most recently made a public appearance for a photo shoot. From what we could see, the production version is faithful to the concept from back in 2007.
If during the last photo session the spy photographers couldn’t get a complete shot of the future X1, this time BMW made it easy for them during what appears to be a commercial shoot. Of course the picture comes at no surprise: the production version remains faithful to the concept that was revealed last year at the Paris Auto Show.
The production BMW X1 will make its official debut this autumn at the Frankfurt Motor Show and be in showrooms by the end of the year.
Do you really need to cover up the X1 BMW? We all saw the concept at the Paris Motor Show. We all pretended to be impressed, even though we were all thought it looked like a slightly smaller version of the X3 (which looks like a slightly smaller version of the X5.) So we also all know that by the time the car is on the U.S. market in 2011, it won’t look much different from what we saw in Paris.
BMW has released an "official" spy video for the upcoming X1. So while we know anything we see in the video is genuine; we also know the we only get to see what BMW wants us to see. Either way, its still fun to watch the little SUV have some fun in the snow, and the engine noises are great.
