BMW introduced the X1, first in 2011, then a facelifted version, in a few variants in 2013, and now has just one X1, having phased out all the earlier variants. Theoretically, the current X1 remains almost similar to the earlier ones, except for some cosmetic changes.
This new X1 has small differences from the earlier one, mainly due to the M Sports package, which has been integrated, under which, both the front and rear bumpers get body colored bumpers, making it look athletic. The front has a smoothly sculpted headlight cluster, with strong bi-xenon head lamps along with LED daytime running lights and turn indicators. Additionally, there is a bean shaped radiator grille, with vertical bars in high black and chrome. The front bumper also has an air dam with two air ducts, for cooling the engine. This model gets a chrome waistline and black window sills, which accentuate its modern look. The rear end also looks equally inviting, and shows the increasing importance given to the security, considering that it is fixed with a pair of reflectors, as well. you can also check out the new Hyundai Creta Price in India , specification, Images, Reviews
The X1 is almost similar to its predecessors, except for some small changes, like a new M Sport steering wheel, and updated leather upholstery and contrast stitching. Another change is the use of dark aluminum, which brings grace to the cabin. The front seats are electrically adjustable, with memory function for the driver’s seat. Its dashboard is designed in beautiful layers and has a central console, which has AC unit, infotainment unit and control switches. A microfilter is provided, which ensures hygienic conditions inside the cabin. Other features include sliding front armrest with storage compartment, floor mats in velour, interior mirrors with automatic anti-dazzling function, split folding rear seat backrest and sports seats for front passengers. It looks compact from outside, but is roomy inside. It has a boot space of 480 liters, which can be extended more, by folding the rear bench seat in a 40:20:40 split ratio.
X1 has a 2 liter turbocharged diesel engine, and an eight speed steptronic automatic gearbox, which gives power to the rear wheels. The displacement is 1995 cc and the engine comprises 4 cylinders and 16 valves. This helps to pump out power of 184 bhp and a torque of 380 Nm. The approximate top speed is 200 km/h and it reaches the 100 km/h mark in 7.7 seconds, with its mileage at 17.05 km/l. All its four wheels are fitted with a set of high performance ventilated disc brakes, which are aided by an anti-lock braking system.
