BMW tuner has presented three new sets of alloy wheels for the compact-sized SUV/crossover. Alloy wheels are available in 18,19 or 20″ version. The X1 is powered by either the 190kW 2.8-litre six cylinder petrol engine, the 150kW 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel or the 130kW 1.8-litre single-turbo diesel.
Luggage capacity ranges from 420 litres to an impressive 1,350 litres with the rear seat folded flat. Drive is via the latest generation of BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system. This is an intelligent system which varies the power distribution between front and rear axles according to varying levels of traction on loose surfaces.
It’s also the first BMW SUV to come with a rear wheel drive version as well as xDrive. The most economical version is the X1 sDrive18d with rear wheel drive, putting out only 136g/km of CO2 and using only a measly 5.2 liters per 100km, equivalent to 54.3 UK mpg.
