The preLCI looks a lot better.

I donít like all this recent mess with the kidney grilles design.

Itís very simple: grilles have to be wider at the top. Thatís all. Not wider at the middle, like the 8 series or this X1 LCI, nor wider at the bottom, like the X2.

About time.
Facelift LCI looks promising.
Glad they changed the rear lights.

Question

I was in assumption the pos X1 was replaced by the X2. Is that not correct? If so what the heck the difference?

The X2 looks way nicer and drives better.

Looks good, I don't know though that this is enough to compete with the new Q3/XC40, could definitely use a full refresh

Those grills have increased in height a lot. It's ruining the look of BMWs in general.

Next car I might be out

Big screens aren't inherently bad, but they have to be integrated into the design, not just stuck on top of the center stack. It looks like an afterthought, like they just said "oh crap, we forgot the screen" and slapped it on top. BMW does do the whole slap it on top better than other companies, but it still isn't a great look imho. If I were designing their interior, I'd ditch the dedicated media controls/cd/dvd player to make room to integrate the screen. Of course that would screw up the lines of the wood/chrome trim pieces, but that's for smarter people than me to figure out lol

This interior was a joke even when this X1 debuted..now its borderline ridiculous.

The exterior however has some nice changes..makes it look like a baby X5..for what they had to work with, id say they did a good job.
Fancy and ultra modern interiors look outdated after a couple of years as technology progresses.
X1s interior is classic and will last for years.

It is actually the cheapest SUV a luxury brand makes. Also the most practical and drives the best. So who cares that the interior looks dated, it is at least functional, unlike Audi and Volvo where you have to press 5 buttons to adjust your AC.

Yeah, looks like BMW is going all in on this "let's join the grilles together so we can look more like Kia" design.

Ha, actually, I came for the X1 was exactly for the interior - functional and classy. Physical buttons any day of the week over touch screens. The new breed of car interiors full of LCDs are just hideous and will definitely get old in just a few years.

Don't know who their chief designer is with these grills. Somebody needs to pull him/her aside and set him straight. Like now!

Ehm, the X1 in the video is totally different than the X1 from the first post. Which one is it? The one in the video is hideous.

This is not a facelift but a complete redesign a year later. It looks less suv and more saloon.
