The upcoming BMW X1 headed to India: powertrain alternatives and trim information 

On January 28 during the upcoming Joytown event in Bengaluru, BMW India was prepared to reveal the new X1’s price. As formerly disclosed, dealers are accepting third-generation X1 reservations for a nominal fee of Rs 50,000. The trims, transmission choices, and amenities that will be available on the BMW X1 in India are now more clarified.


Powertrain options


In India, customers may choose between a petrol (sDrive 18i) or a diesel (sDrive 18d) engine for the upcoming BMW X1. The 1.5-liter, three-cylinder gasoline engine has 136 horsepower and 230 Nm of performance, while the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder diesel engine has 150 horsepower and 360 Nm of acceleration. The frontal wheels will get horsepower from both turbines through a 7-speed dual-clutch automated transmission.


BMW estimates that the diesel variant can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds and the gasoline version in 9.2 seconds. The fuel economy of the gasoline is 15.03 kpl, while the diesel is 19.23 kpl.


Specifications and Trimmings


BMW will sell the X1 in two trim levels, the X Line and M Sport, with both available powertrains.


The third-generation X1 is equipped with a 10.70-inch touchscreen display, 10.25-inch computerized indicator consortium, 12-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system, cordless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, linked car technology, ADAS capabilities, and parking assist. The front seats of the M Sport versions also include a messaging feature, while Sports seats are standard equipment in the X Line models.


Both grades will come with 18-inch alloy wheels, although the M Sport versions will have more aggressive styling.


Outside and inside


The new BMW X1 features thin headlights with inverted L-shaped DRLs on either side of a big, chrome-heavy trapezoidal bumper. The flat doorway knobs and large wheel arches in silhouette are reminiscent of those on the new BMW 7 Series. The new X1 is lengthier than competitors like the Audi Q3 and somewhat bigger than the previous generation in regards to size. It is substantially more upscale inside than it was before. The interior has a huge 500-liter trunk and greater room for passengers in the back seats.


Competition Evaluation


When it is released, the redesigned X1 will compete with other small, upscale SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the updated Volvo XC40, and the forthcoming Audi Q3. Expect the new X1 to cost between Rs 45 lakh and Rs 50 lakh, which is somewhat more expensive than the previous model.
