The new BMW X1 that broke cover in May 2019 has arrived in India. The facelifted compact luxury SUV has been priced from INR 35.90 lakh* in the country.
The new BMW X1 has a more powerful exterior design, with cues borrowed from the latest global BMW models. The updated model has a more dominant front-end, with a larger BMW kidney grille, revised headlamps with sharper lighting iconography, new lower grille and air intakes and a new bumper with integrated LED fog lamps. At the rear, new combination lamps with full LED technology have new graphics, the new inlay in the body-colour apron has adopted the SUV’s main body colour and the diameter of the exhaust tailpipes has been increased from 70 to 90 mm.
Moving inside, the 2020 BMW X1 features a new, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and wireless Apple CarPlay but this unit is not available in India. Sadly, there’s no fully digital instrument cluster even in the new model. The 2020 Mercedes GLA arriving in Q3 2020 (October-December 2020) will offer that feature.
The 2020 BMW X1 is available in India in sDrive20i and sDrive20d engine variants with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine respectively. SportX, xLine and M Sport are the trim choices.
