BMW has silently introduced a petrol engine for its entry-level SUV - the X1. It is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that develops 191PS of power and 280Nm of torque. The engine is paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic, that sends the power to the front wheels. Notably, the petrol X1 is available in a single 'xLine' variant and with front-wheel-drive only. Highlights of the xLine include all-LED headlamps, dual-zone climate control, electric seats, 18-inch alloy wheels and six airbags.
BMW’s X1 was one of the Bavarian car maker’s more successful models. This Auto Expo BMW launched the new generation X1 and we take a closer look at what it has to offer.
In order to take on the likes of Audi Q3 and Mercedes Benz GLA class, BMW has offered X1 to the Indian buyers in the price range of Rs 32.4-42.7 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This compact SUV has all the makings of a winner and comes with typical BMW kidney grill, sharp headlamps, sporty roof rails, and dynamic rear. Inside the cabin, the quality of the materials is quite likeable and the rear bench is spacious enough to carry 3 occupants in comfort. The X1 has boot capacity rated at 420-liter. Under the Hood, BMW has offered X1 with two engine choices- 190bhp 2.0-liter diesel engine and 191bhp 2.0-liter petrol motor, both mated to 8-speed automatic transmission. The Dynamics of BMW X1 can easily be considered as the segment benchmark; especially the handling prowess of this SUV is far more accomplished than its rivals like Audi and Mercedes.
