The BMW X1’s newest facelift hasn’t really been seen since its New York Auto Show debut. The small crossover is about to make a comeback however.
Thanks to the Bavarian firm’s UK division, we’re now getting a followup on the X1, together with pricing information for their market and a substantial gallery.
The new market for the X1 may be the US and it might be getting petrol powered engines but in the UK (and most other markets in Europe) the crossover will be powered by diesel engines only.
Thankfully, even the British get the option of two or four wheel drive and a couple of new trim levels to pick from called Sport and xLine.
BMW’s trusted turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder diesel can be had with anything between 143 and 218 horsepower though we should mention the top of the line model is only hooked up to all wheel drive.
Each of them implies certain concessions in terms of fuel economy and the only other restriction the X1 driver has is the manual gearbox and RWD delivery on the EfficientDynamics model.
As for the new trim level choices, they’re both high end with the Sport sitting above the previously available SE model just as the xLine sits above the Sport.
Both come with a similar flavor though; larger alloy wheels (17 vs 18 inch), chrome, and a few interior tweaks that are either aimed at sporty driving or luxury cruising.
In the UK, the BMW X1 is priced between 24.660 and 31.860 GBP, roughly 30.000 and around 39.000.
