Engine options for the BMW X1 include petrol and diesel. The 1,998cc in-line four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine produces 189 bhp and 280 Nm of torque as a starting point. A 1,995cc in-line four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with 400 Nm of torque and 188 bhp is the second option. While the diesel engine is combined with an eight-speed transmission, the gasoline engine is connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The X1 embodies BMW's distinctive design aesthetic, which is also true of all other X series SUVs. It has the classic kidney grille, which has been enhanced with a shiny chrome finish. It also has tail lights, fog lamps, and headlamps made entirely of LEDs. Additionally, BMW offers three different versions of 17-inch alloy wheels, while the Tech Edition comes with a pair of 18-inch wheels.
The Sensatec synthetic leather upholstery for the seats inside the X1 is available in two color schemes: Oyster/Black and all-Black. An analog instrument cluster with a TFT multimedia display is also present. The X1 comes with innovative infotainment touchscreen displays that range in size from 6.5 inches to 10.25 inches, depending on the version.
Six airbags, attentiveness assistance, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), electric parking brake with auto hold, side-impact protection, electronic vehicle immobiliser, crash sensor, ISOFIX child seat mounting, and an integrated emergency spare wheel under the load floor are just a few of the advanced safety features that come standard on the new BMW X1.
