When BMW introduced its first sport-utility crossover, the X5, in 1999, some were excited, while others lamented that the Bavarian automaker had lost its touch. In either case, the company's roster of X series crossovers has continued to grow since to include the X6, the X3 and now this, the X1. The smallest crossover in the line-up, the new X1 is based on the compact 1 Series, and while the dimensions may be somewhat similar to the X3, its styling marks a significant improvement. But don't take our word for it, see for yourself in the photo gallery below, straight from the Frankfurt show floor where the new crossover was introduced to the public for the first time.
