Though we doubt the X1 will be as heavily influenced by the Concept CS as this rendering suggests, there will be some similar features such as the enlarged grille, wrap around headlights and aggressive bumper. According to earlier reports, development has been carried out on the new model although final production plans are yet to be confirmed.
Production numbers are expected to be around the 100,000 mark with prices starting around €30,000. It will be tough market as rivals Mercedes and Audi are preparing their own versions, with the new GLK and Q3 models.
With the introduction of the new X6 crossover and now this X1, the door is left open for even more ‘X’ variants including the possibility of an X4 crossover based on the X3 and an X7 SUV flagship complete with an air suspension system and V12 power.
