    That's not bad at all. I really like it because it doesn't use the weird connected headlight and grille thing they've been using on their newer models.

    Definitely better than the previous one, which was to my eyes the worst offender in the 'Luxury race to the bottom' crowd.

    Seeing the RWD X1 live on here in the states gives me hope of a direct competitor from GM.

    Re: The All-New 2016 BMW X1

    The X1 has gone fwd/awd. Will the BMW faithful balk? I don't think so. Proportionately it looks right. I think they added to the exterior design of it and increased the interior dimensions. This will broaden the appeal of it to more people.

    The one issue i have with BMW X series is the fog lights. They just dont seem to be integrated to me. Hopefully, the X7 will not have two random circle holes in the middle of the bumper for fog lights.

    Re: The All-New 2016 BMW X1

    I think it's stupid for BMW to move to FWD, thought I understand why they need to -- beyond compliance and packaging issues.

    Ultimately, if BMW can deliver near-cutting edge performance on a FWD platform (they can, as they've proven with Mini), then I think BMW will be OK.
    THey're also not stupid enough to bring FWD to cars larger than the 2-series either. So, don't expect a FWD 3-8 series anytime soon.

    That looks awesome. Much better than the awkward looking Q3.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.
