BMW To Launch Sub-X1 Model By 2017, Says German Report

BMW will cap off its crossover and SUV range with a unique-looking sub-X1 model that is said to go on sale in 2017. The model will reportedly share its underpinnings with other FWD-biased models in the range, but come with bespoke styling and a headroom-impeding coupe roofline.

It won’t be a practical offering by any means, and for that you will have to opt for the next X1 (pictured); with this model, emphasis will fall on style and individuality, rather than maximizing passenger and cargo capacity.

Actual details provided by Auto Motor und Sport are sparse to say the least, but the model is presented as kind of a sure thing.

So basically, this will be the BMW equivalent of the MINI Paceman, a model that was so successful they’re considering pulling the plug less than two years after its launch.
