Expected: February 2013, Price: Rs. 22-26 lakh

The BMW X1 in its short tenure has proved to be a fairly successful experiment for the Bavarian car maker and has undoubtedly helped it muster domestic sales both in India and overseas. With newer crossover models from miscellaneous car brands lining up for 2013, BMW has made its ambitions quite clear and this involves introducing a face-lifted version of the present X1 model sometime in February.


The refreshed model isn’t all that different from the 2012 model, but as you can see does indeed clad a more distinctive crossover profile. A new headlight design with LED accent lights, new fog lamp surrounds and subdivision of the apron, bumper and underguard are the most prominent changes. Side indicators integrated into the exterior mirrors, new exterior colours and alloy wheels are among other changes you can expect to see on the new X1 for 2013.

The insides have also gotten a whole lot better on the face-lifted version with a more driver-focused cockpit design. High-quality electroplated surrounds for the gearshift lever and the centre console cup holder as well as a chrome clip on the headlight switch are some nice touches to the car’s new interiors. Engine specifications for the petrol and diesel engine variants on the new model are expected remain the same as the older model. Details of expected petrol and diesel variants and their region wise pricing will be declared closer to the official pan India launch.
