New BMW X1 Features
An exceptional small-to-medium sized SUV, the new BMW X1 is a fantastic introduction for customers looking at the established BMW X range.
Unmistakably BMW, the new BMW X1 features a distinct design and state-of-the-art technology to ensure each and every journey is of optimal enjoyment. A variety of engine choices provide superb economy and performance, while excellent practicality allows you to tailor your BMW X1 to suit your lifestyle.
The interior of the car looks every bit as good as the exterior, and is constructed of the finest materials to deliver an experience that is truly BMW. Discover the features of the BMW X1 in more detail below.
Design and Practicality
Sharp and sophisticated, the BMW X1 is the perfect entry-level expression of the iconic capabilities the superb BMW X range offers.
Easily identifiable as a BMW X model, the X1 promotes sleek styling with iconic details such as a larger one-piece kidney grille, accompanied by a redesigned front bumper that incorporates a smart and dynamic LED headlight and fog light design.
Contrasting details ensure the style of the X1 appeals in an eye-catching concoction of sharp characteristics and crisp lines. Various specifications ensure you can tailor your own unique style to your personal taste. No matter which model you choose, the BMW X1 will not disappoint.
Technology and Safety
A slim and frameless BMW Curved Display with touch and voice control gives the interior a cutting-edge vibe, complemented by a switch/sliding central console incorporating unique features such as wireless charging.
Voice control allows the new X1 to be very minimal with its buttons, providing you with more time to focus on the ever-changing external environment. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come as standard, allowing you to stay connected when on the move and become one with the innovative vibe that BMW My Modes allows for.
BMW Maps - Connected Navigation means you will always be able to find a way, whilst BMW ConnectedDrive allows your car to keep up to date via the Remote Software Upgrade feature, too.
Engines and Performance
Diesel engines offer up to 57mpg, with varying levels of power, while petrol versions are also rather efficient, achieving up to 42mpg. Both petrol and diesel choices are impressive considering the nature and size of this premium SUV.
Alternatively, the cutting-edge plug-in-hybrid choices utilise a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine, accompanied by electric technology that allow for up to 55 miles of pure electric range. Plug-in hybrid versions are also able to achieve up to 353mpg combined, meaning the new X1 is a properly impressive economical SUV without leaving its textbook practicality and performance behind.
The range-topping model is undoubtedly the M35i xDrive with 296bhp, which takes just 5.4 seconds to get from 0 to 62mph.
If you opt for the plug-in hybrid variant of the new BMW X1, which is titled the xDrive25e or xDrive30e, there will come a point where the batteries need to be recharged in order to maintain optimal performance and economy.
Charging times will vary depending on your specific make or model, as well as the type of charging point used, but you can expect to have your vehicle fully rejuvenated within 2.5 hours when using the BMWi Wallbox.
A full charge will see you enjoy an impressive all-electric driving range of up to 54 miles, which will be enough for the daily commute for most.
