With a long wheelbase and short overhangs, the X1’s exterior silhouette features a sculpted bumper, broad wheel arches and muscular lines that give the car an instant sense of importance when merged with its sportingly compact peripheral proportions.
Add four LED daytime running lights and raised fog lights that come as standard on xLine and M Sport models alongside 18” alloy wheels and dual sided exhaust pipes and you have a model that has been created with distinguished ‘X’ credentials and with power and its core.
Complementing the car further is a range of trimmings that are available on the different model derivatives. The BMW X1 xLine features an exclusive Satin Aluminium exterior that fully encompasses the car to provide a suitably refined edge, while the Sport and M Sport models both feature additional elements that accentuate their agile looks including a unique High Gloss Black exterior trim on the Sport model and body colour and High Gloss Shadowline exterior touches on the M Sport.
On the interior, the X1 is also dressed in premium materials throughout. From the sport leather steering wheel, the dashboard, doors and centre console to the BMW Navigation with the signature iDrive controller as standard the X1 is as smart on the inside as it is on the outside.
With a noticeably higher roofline, the X1’s interior cabin takes advantage of greater headroom, visibility and comfort, while those sitting in the back also benefit from extra legroom and optional sliding rear seats. Under seat storage, 505 litres of boot space and multiple other compartments also contribute to the increased interior space and added luggage capacity of the BMW X1.
Available in either petrol or diesel BMW TwinPower Turbo engines in four cylinder configurations, the X1 promises the performance and power expected of that of a larger engine while the driving experience is enriched by features such as Dynamic Damper Control that delivers superior handling in all situations and Brake Energy Regeneration which helps ease emissions and significantly reduce fuel consumption while leaving more powerful available for acceleration.
Such innovations and efficiency set the BMW X1 apart from its competitors, making it unmistakably ‘X’ and the most modern and vehicle in its segment.
