Layout

The BMW X1 is a line of subcompact luxury crossovers produced by BMW. Debuted in 2009, the first-generation X1 has been based on the E90 3 Series and offers rear-wheel drive layout as standard. At its introduction, it was positioned as the smallest SUV in BMW line-up below the X3, aiming a wider range of customers due to its smaller size, increased efficiency, and a lower price tag due to the all-wheel drive layout (xDrive) being optional.

The second-generation X1 marked the switch to the front-wheel drive-based layout by using the UKL2 platform shared with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and the Mini Countryman.[1] Despite its name, it is currently only the second smallest SUV produced by BMW since the introduction of the X2.[2]

First generation (E84; 2009)[edit]

The E84 X1 is the first-generation model and was originally presented as the BMW Concept X1 at the Paris Motor Show in 2008.[3] Development of the vehicle started in 2006 when BMW identified the need for a smaller and more efficient model in its SUV line-up as petrol prices were increasing. Due to the urgent need to produce the vehicle, development and pre-production time was shortened by 40 percent compared to previous X Series models.[4]

It is based on the same platform as the E90 3 Series[5] and features the same 2,760 mm (109 in) wheelbase. The X1 is the first BMW X Series to be available in the sDrive trim (two-wheel drive). It was not introduced to the United States until 2012.[6]

In 2013, the E84 X1 underwent a facelift, featuring restyled exterior and interior design elements, as well as the integration of BMW EfficientDynamics on all models.[7] The original X1 sold 820,529 units.

Second generation (F48; 2015)[edit]

The F48 X1 is the second-generation model. It is built upon the front-wheel drive based UKL2 platform,[8] and is available in long-wheelbase and long-wheelbase hybrid variants in China.[9] The range consists of turbocharged 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engine options.[10] Base models are front-wheel drive (branded as sDrive), with all-wheel drive (xDrive) available as an option and is standard for some higher-end models.[11]
