Default BMW X1 + RUMORED "SAV" Sibling The X2

I searched through the forum and wasn't able to find any posts about the BMW X1/X2. Mods please correct me if wrong.

BMW X1 Details:

"In November, the first prototypes of the all-new BMW X1 crossover hit the road. "

"The newest X1 also appears to take several design cues from the BMW X6, especially from the B pillar back. Despite the X6s coupe-like inspired lines, the X1 should offer plenty of rear-seat head room and cargo space."

"The X1 is expected to hit the market in 2010 with full time all-wheel drive. Its overall size is also said to be comparable to the Toyota RAV4. "


BMW X2 Details:

"Just as the X6 is the SAV version of the X5, the X2 will be the X1s fun-loving sibling. "

SAV=Sport Activity Vehicle

"With Audi's Q3 rumored to have a three-door configuration, the X2 might end up being its nearest rival."

"Specific details regarding powertrains and availability remain unclear. The most likely scenario is BMW will borrow engines and transmissions from the 1-Series lineup."

Why do all BMW SUV's/MUV's have to be so painfully ugly?

Do they even have a design department in place or not?
