2011 BMW X1 xDrive28i


In their quest to lower fuel consumption through downsizing, BMW revealed a new edition of the X1 SUV powered by a new four-cylinder engine.

This new four-pot is modeled on the firm’s renowned straight-six, and is charged by two turbochargers and as a result churns out 245 hp and 350 Nm of torque in spite of its 2000 cc displacement.

It also features a host of fuel saving technologies, such as High Precision Injection direct petrol injection with innovative solenoid injectors, and the latest further enhanced version of the BMW-patented VALVETRONIC variable valve control system.
