With the upcoming launch of the X1 sub-compact SUV in the U.S., BMW has released a pack of 100 photos of the face lifted vehicle that will be available in multiple models with a long line of options and trim packages.
The official press release states that “The talented Sport Activity Vehicle of the premium sub-compact segment will make its US market debut armed with state-of-the-art powertrain technology, innovative features, selective design modifications and extensive interior refinements.”
The first choice one has to make with the new X1 is between the four cylinder or six cylinder engine. The two-litre, turbocharged four cylinder engine offers 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and is available exclusively with an eight-speed automatic with rear-drive (X1 sDrive28i) and all-wheel-drive (xDrive28i) also available.
The N55 inline-six cylinder delivers 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque and is available exclusively with a six-speed automatic and all-wheel-drive.
In terms of packages, BMW will be offering two separate lines for the X1, xLine and SportLine, as well as an M Sport package.
The exterior has undergone only minor changes and includes a new front bumper, slightly remodelled headlights and side mirrors.
The X1 also offers a number of additional features including BMW’s Servotronic steering, iDrive, Xenon headlights and LED taillights, a panoramic sunroof, a rear parking camera, and BMW Apps compatibility.
Available in authorised BMW centres, the BMW X1 will sell for a starting price of $31,545 (approximately R306, 891 at the current exchange rate).
