i still don't get why bmw needs 4 SAVs but ok. looks better than x3 thats for sure, i hope they are going to stop making the x3, its just ugly and doesn't accomplish something that the x1 or x5 can't.

I like it, styling wise its years ahead of the X3 which looked old the day it came out. Should be a popular car.

Is the X1 a replacement for the X3? Kind've like how the Z4 replaced the Z3. Or are they still going to refresh the X3 so that they have X1, X3, X5, X6?

Is this going to be smaller than the X3 then? I don't understand why BMW needs this either. But eh i'm sure they will sell just fine. It looks decent.
