Launched: 2013 BMW X1 in India at Rs 27.9 lakh
BMW India has launched the facelifted X1 at a starting price of Rs 27.9 lakh, ex-Delhi. Available in three trim levels and only in diesel, the new X1 will take on the likes of the Audi Q3 and upcoming Volvo V40 Cross Country . On the outside, BMW has made slight styling enhancements on the X1, starting with LED corona rings on the headlamps, new air dams, chrome finish on the higher trims and a new bumper.
Inside, the centre console has been slightly redesigned and the steering wheel now gets Servotronic assistance. Customers also have the option to choose the panoramic sunroof.
Mechanically, under the hood BMW has plonked in a tweaked variant of the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine which now produces 184PS of power and also gets a new 8-speed automatic box. All the X1 variants now come with EcoPro mode and brake energy recuperation as standard and BMW claims improved fuel efficiency as well.
BMW has discontinued the petrol variant of the X1 and all-wheel drive option is not being offered currently.
