According to Autocar, the 2016 BMW X1 would cost a base entry price of 26,780 GBP in UK, while the top of the line versions would be set at 26,060 GBP. That means that the new X1 would be 1,500 GBP more expensive than the previous generation.
Once it will become available on the UK and European market this autumn, the 2016 BMW X1 will stand on the new and high-performance UKL platform, the same seen on the 2-Series Active and Gran Tourer, meaning a front-wheel drive layout.
This would lead the way to high-performance engines under the hood, the 2016 BMW X1 being powered by three 2.0-liter petrol engines, fitted in the sDrive20i, with front wheel drive layout, the all-wheel drive xDrive20i, both coming with 189 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque, as well as the xDrive25i, with 228 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque.
On the diesel department, other three 2.0-liter engines will be equipped, like the sDrive18d front-wheel drive with 148 horsepower and 330 Nm of torque, the all-wheel drive xDrive20d, developing 187 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque, and the xDrive25d, with 228 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque.
We expect the official prices to be officially confirmed by BMW in the upcoming period, meanwhile, enjoy the photos and a video presentation with the 2016 BMW X1!
