If that's truly the case it kinda bums me out that I got a '13 X3 for the wife a couple months before the X1 was available. Granted, the X1 is probably too small for our needs. I still may take one for a spin to see how it feels compared to the reviews I've read.
Steering feel between the two is very noticeable, and you are correct that the X1 is much smaller inside than the X3 and a lot of the little details like the tie down rings in the trunk were skipped. It's a lot of fun though.
