2016 BMW X1 L – Auto China Live


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.

Overall length is 13 cm longer than the regular X1.

In-line with manufacturers launching long wheelbase versions of regular cars exclusively for the Chinese market, BMW has unveiled the 2016 BMW X1 L at the Auto China 2016 in Beijing.

The X1 L measures 4.56 meters in length, 1.81 meters in width and 1.62 meters in height, and is 13 cm longer than the regular BMW X1. With the increased wheelbase, rear passengers get 5 cm-18 cm more knee room and a cargo capacity of 465-675 liters (depending on the position of the rear seat), and 1,650 liters with the rear bench folded.

Some of the features available in the BMW X1 L include LED headlights, Driving Assistant Package, Harman Kardon audio system, 8.8-inch iDrive Navigation Plus display, Touchpad input, head-up display and a hands-free tailgate.
