U Spy: BMW’s New X1 ‘baby’ Crossover Caught Strolling in Long Beach, California


While BMW is still keeping mum on when it will bring its smallest crossover model over to the States, Carscoop reader, Nick K., who is always alert for new models on the road, snapped this picture of the X1 dressed in an M Sport outfit during his daily maneuvers in Long Beach, California. “I saw this BMW X1 driving in Long Beach today followed by 3 5-Series BMW's. It had specially marked plates and it was beautiful,” Nick told Carscoop.

Besides the fact that BMW Canada recently confirmed that the X1 will go on sale in the country before the end of the year, we don’t have any other news on the Bavarian automaker’s plans for North America. That said, your guess about what the BMW X1 was doing in California this week is as good as ours.

Kudos to Nick K. for the scoop!

It was bought in Mexico, that could be an explanation due to the fact that California is near the border. BMW has sold the X1 over here for about 2 months or so.

If it was "beautiful" then it clearly wasn't a BMW X1. The BMW X1 we get in Europe is an awkward, ill-proportioned and gangly hash-up of the already ugly 1 series...

Agree with anonymous earlier: X1 is neither new nor beautiful
