Interview Opportunity - BMW Group Canada unveils important firsts in Montreal.

All-new BMW X1 shown for the first time in North America, and MINI's first all-wheel drive vehicle unveiled.

RICHMOND HILL, ON, Jan. 11 /CNW/ - BMW Group Canada will present several major firsts at the Montreal International Auto Show this week. The all-new BMW X1 Sports Activity Vehicle has its North American premier, the completely refreshed BMW X3 will be shown for the first time in Canada, and the all-new MINI Countryman - MINI's first all-wheel drive vehicle - will be unveiled as well.

Each of these products sit in a rapidly rising segment in the Canadian market - the SUV category. Having increased 21 per cent in 2010 over 2009, this category is one to watch in 2011. The BMW X1 and the MINI Countryman are unique; each product has carved out its own subcategory within the overall SUV market. 

To learn more, speak to the experts at the BMW Group stand at the Montreal International Auto Show.  With representatives from both Germany and Canada, information about the company and its products from a global, Canadian and Quebec standpoint are readily available.
