Anyone seen the pictures of the new X1? They've updated it quite a bit and it looks pretty good, a lot better than the first version, certainly.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px; : rgb251, 251, 253;">

BMWs always used to look much more sportier than Mercs; these days the reverse seems to be true.

I notice they are still pushing out dashboards with the same black-and-horizontal-alloy-bar look. To me, that started to look dated about eight years ago! ...that said, I guess it's part of their recognizable brand image, and maybe they just can't come up with anything better for the time being.

I've always liked BMW's and was never a fan of Merc's until their recent styling changes. Once they dropped the wood trims and wood steering wheels and made them look sporty I started to really like them.
Not a fan of the current BMW X1, I'll reserve judgement on this one until I see it in the flesh. Hard to judge the sizing of it.

Some angles it looks like raised hatchback size, other angles it looks the size of the X3!

It's actually getting really good reviews, saying it's vastly improved over its predecessor.
Personally I like it and would consider it when I'm due to change.

I'm coming from a BMW, I really like this and had it been released earlier I would have went for it. BUT my lease is up for renewal and I needed a car quicker than what BMW could deliver.
