Just a few hours after BMW has taken the wraps off the new X1 generation, the guys from AutoExpress have managed to get closer to it and this is how this walkaround video was produced. Don’t expect your average review because this is just the start of a lot of things which will eventually form your opinion on whether you should go for the new X1 generation or choose an Audi Q3 or the Mercedes-Benz GLA.
