2016 BMW X1 with M Sport Pack spotted for first time – Spied
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Only cosmetic and suspension upgrades.
For the 2016 BMW X1, the company will offer customers various packages for better personalization, one of them being the M Sport package. Spyshots have revealed one such unit outfitted with the body kit fully undisguised for the first time since its unveil on June 3.
The M Sport pack for the 2016 BMW X1 is designed around the aggressive character of an M Division model. Up front, the 2016 BMW X1 M Sport gets a large BMW kidney grille with black slats, and larger air inlets in the lower fascia. It also gets body-colored bumpers, side extensions, wheel arches as well as an M-Sport 5-spoke 18/19-inch two-tone light-alloy wheels.
The exclusive M-Sport features continue to be seen inside as well, which features a leather-wrapped M steering wheel, special aluminum trim, sports seats, and roof lining in anthracite. It also gets a dual zone HVAC system, PDC (Park Distance Control) at the rear, and speed control with braking function.
As with any M Sport package, there are M badges all over the car, as seen on the steering wheel, gear knob, foot rest, and the exterior front wing.
In terms of mechanical changes, BMW has tuned the M Sport suspension, which lowers the X1 by 10 millimeters, thus improving the presence of the new X1. However, there are no engine upgrades reported so far. The M Sport package can be added to any one of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol- or diesel-powered variants, whose output ranges from 150-231 hp.
Adding the M Sport pack to the X1 will cost an extra 4,100-5,200 euros (INR 2.83 lakhs to 3.59 lakhs), depending on the variant chosen. The 2016 BMW X1 will break cover at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, followed by a local (Germany) launch in October.
We expect the 2016 BMW X1 to launch in India in the first half of 2016.
