New BMW X1 UK Price

Pricing and specs have been announced for the new version of the BMW X1 in the British market.

Well, we say new, but in fact it’s just been tweaked very mildly. On the outside you get a few colored part that used to be just black plastic and some new indicators, and that’s about it. In UK the car comes with a range of diesel engines only. Customers can now also choose from two new models: Sport and xLine. In addition, SE and M Sport specifications receive an increase in standard equipment, further enhancing the value to the customer.  Priced from £24,660 for the BMW X1 sDrive18d.

The basic models with rear-wheel-drive are rubbish to be honest, but they are very low on CO2, emitting less than 130g/km with the new 8-speed transmission.

Exterior design: reinforcing the sporting message

The crisp, distinctive lines of the BMW X1 have been strengthened with a comprehensive range of stylistic enhancements. From the front, the X1 receives extended painted surfaces, emphasising the X-shape running along the bonnet’s precision lines, through the kidney grille, and into the lower bumper. The new headlamps add to this dynamic ‘face’, and when specified with the optional Xenon light technology, white LED corona rings and a white LED active eyebrow element provide an even more distinctive frontal appearance to the X1, further enhanced by the new fog lamp surrounds.

From the side, the new X1 features reduced plastic bordering at the lower edge of the body, while the indicators are now integrated into the wing mirrors. Nevertheless, with its rising swage line and chunky wheel arch extensions, the new X1 is instantly recognisable as a BMW X model. At the rear, larger painted areas echo the frontal treatment, while there is a more prominent underguard to reinforce the sporty, off-road appearance of the X1. New exterior colours and alloy wheel designs complete the new look.

Interior evolution: creating the right ambience

The driver-focused cabin of the BMW X1 has received minor adjustments for this revised generation. The driver’s side of the angled centre console is now shallower, and covered with a higher quality surface material, while the panel for the sound system and climate control is now finished in high gloss black to match the air vent surrounds. The new BMW X1 features a storage compartment in the instrument panel as standard, but when the vehicle is specified with satellite navigation, this becomes the operational screen for the iDrive system – highlighted with chrome accents. Elsewhere there is revised trim for the gearlever surround, cup holder and headlamp switch to create a high quality atmosphere within the cockpit of the new BMW X1.

A new engine range: TwinPower technology for maximum performance

The new BMW X1 features a range of diesel power engines all based on the latest 1,995cc, all-aluminium BMW four-cylinder unit featuring common-rail direct fuel injection and BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology. For the sDrive18d, xDrive18d, sDrive20d and xDrive20d, TwinPower equates to the addition of the latest variable intake geometry turbocharger to produce superb power and torque outputs with outstanding efficiency.

For the variants wearing the 18d badge, the four-cylinder diesel provides an output of 143hp and a peak torque of 320Nm delivered between 1,750 and 2,750rpm. In sDrive form that equates to an impressive sub-ten second zero to 62mph time of 9.6 seconds and a top speed of 125mph. This impressive performance is combined with a fuel consumption figure of 56.5mpg and a CO2 output of 128 g/km. The four-wheel drive xDrive model shares identical engine outputs with its rear-wheel drive relation, reaching 62mph from rest in just 9.9 seconds and reaching a top speed of 121mph. It returns 51.4mpg on the combined cycle while it boasting CO2 emissions as low as 143g/km.

The 20d TwinPower diesel engine is also available in both sDrive and xDrive variants, and produces 184hp with 380Nm of torque available from 1,750 – 2,750rpm. This allows the sDrive model to reach 62mph in 7.8 seconds, before travelling on to a top speed of 136mph. Not to compromise on efficiency, the sDrive20d achieves 57.6mpg and emits just 143g/km of CO2. The xDrive20d also features an identical engine output to the sDrive20d and completes the 0-62mph sprint in 8.1 seconds, with a top speed of 133mph and fuel consumption of up to 52.3mpg with CO2 emissions of just 143g/km.

The sDrive20d EfficientDynamics is only available in rear-wheel drive form with a manual gearbox, and features a uniquely tuned two-litre diesel engine with 163hp and 380Nm of torque. Thanks to this and a range of other efficiency measures, this model achieves a combined fuel consumption figure of 62.8mpg and emits just 119g/km of CO2. However, it still reaches 62mph from rest in just 8.3 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 133mph.

The new BMW X1 has a new flagship model in the form of the xDrive25d, which is only available in four-wheel drive. The 25d features a pair of turbochargers working together in sequence. The smaller of the two turbochargers features variable geometry technology and is responsible for the low rev response of the engine with peak torque of 450Nm available from just 1,500rpm. The larger turbo is concerned with higher rev output and helps the engine to produce 218hp at 4,000rpm. On the road this equates to a zero to 62mph time of just 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 142mph. The xDrive25ds impressive performance is coupled with a combined fuel consumption figure of 51.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 145g/km.

All new BMW X1 models feature as standard a six-speed manual gearbox, but a new eight-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic is available on every variant apart from the sDrive EfficientDynamics model.
