With Audi refreshing the Q3, it was time that BMW refreshed their entry level SAV, the X1. Not that the current X1 was not doing great, but it’s always a good thing when a manufacturer updates their models, time to time.
The new model update makes the BMW X1 an even more desirable proportions. Key to its increased appeal are pronounced design revisions, a high level of versatility and a host of cutting edge equipment features. The BMW X1’s new look is immediately clear with the most prominent revisions found in the front and rear. In front now, a larger BMW grille, sharply merges in the center, linking up with new adaptive LED Headlights. The rear end of the X1 also houses new stylistic features.
Another highlight can be found on the driver’s-side exterior mirror, which projects a tow tone LED X1 image when the car is unlocked.
On the inside the highlights of this BMW X1 is the Control Display. A centrally mounted 6.5 inch screen is included as standard. Higher variants get an option of either 8.8 inch or new 10.25 inch Touch Control Display.
Depending on various markets, the customers can now choose the new BMW X1 with 16 engine/transmission combinations, ensuring they have a variety of possibilities to choose from.
With the new Audi Q3, just round the corner in India, we expect this refreshed X1 come to India during festive season in the third quarter of 2019. While, globally, BMW may offer multiple engine and transmission options, in India, they will stick to their tried and tested 2.0 diesel mill. Looks like, with the introduction of this new refreshed X1, the compact SUV market is going to sizzle for sure.
