BMW’s unveiled it’s third-generation X1 SUV, or what the Bavarian automaker likes to call its “sport activity vehicle.”
As BMW’s best-selling compact crossover, the new X1 was given a bolder kidney grille, crisp lines, and sporty styling, helping it stand out in a crowded segment.
There are new color options, up to 20-inch wheels are available, and there’s even a new xLine design package adding high-gloss body cladding, Satin Aluminum exterior trim, Glacier Silver mirror caps, and pear-effect chrome surrounds for the kidney grille and grille bars.
Under the hood is a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder that produces 241 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. That’s paired with a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission, which together helps the powertrain deliver a zero to 60 mph time of 6.2 seconds.
The larger dimensions of the new X1 translate to more generous interior space. There’s also more tech, including BMW’s Curved Display with iDrive 8.0, advanced assisted driving capabilities, CarPlay and Android Auto support, plus a suite of advanced safety systems.
The 2023 BMW X1 will be priced from $38,600 when it arrives later this year.
