BMW X1: One Tiny Bimmer Soft-Roader

Take a peek at the BMW X1, the newest and littlest soft-roading crossover Bimmer to leak out of Munich.

Here's what we know about the BMW X1 so far — The little SAV (Sport Activity Vehicle) will be derived from the BMW 1-Series with full-time all-wheel-drive (xDrive) and will feature the following roundup of engine choices:

* BMW X1 xDrive20d - 177 horsepower - 8.4 seconds 0-60 MPH - Max Speed 132 MPH (213 km/h) - 40.5 MPG (5.8 liters / 100 km)
* BMW X1 xDrive23d - 204 horsepower - 7.3 seconds 0-60 MPH - Max Speed 138 mph (223 km/h) - 37 MPG (6,3 Liter / 100 km)
* BMW X1 xDrive28i - 6.7 seconds 0-60 MPH - Max Speed 142 MPH(230 km/h)

Sadly, we're told that only the BMW X1 xDrive28i will make it stateside, so give up those hopes and dreams for a high mileage diesel. We'll get the short end of the stick... again. (Hat Tip To Cameron!)

Why? I mean, just frickin' why?

This makes no sense. Considering the backlash against things that are perceived to be SUVs (and let's face, that's how BMW is marketing it), it just makes no sense to arbitrarily add another SUV to their lineup, particularly in light of CAFE.

If they were looking to downsize their car line by getting rid of the X5, which, as it is, is only slightly bigger than the X3, and allowing the X1 to take the position of the X3, then this would make sense.

But as a random addition to the lineup, this makes no sense.
