Interior

The F48 BMW X1 is the second and current generation of the BMW X1 range of subcompact luxury crossover SUVs.

A new long-wheelbase model (F49 model code) was unveiled at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show, and features a 110 mm (4.3 in) longer wheelbase.[4] Long-wheelbase models share the same engines and also introduced a new all-wheel drive hybrid model called the xDrive25Le.[5] These models are sold exclusively in China, with sales having began on May 2016.[6]

All models are now front-wheel drive based (marketed as sDrive) and are also available with all-wheel drive (xDrive).[7]

In May 2019, the facelifted LCI model was revealed on the official BMW website. Changes include new available front LED lights, bumpers (with which come LED tail lights), and new wheels.

Development and launch[edit]

The F48 X1 was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show,[8] and later at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.[9]

It is based on the modular front-wheel drive UKL2 platform that is shared between BMW and MINI models,[10] instead of being based on the rear-wheel drive 3 Series Touring platform as with the previous generation X1.[11]

In comparison, the F48 X1 has a 90 mm (4 in) shorter wheelbase, and is 23 mm (1 in) wider, and 67 mm (3 in) taller. However, the new platform has allowed for increased interior legroom, headroom, and shoulder room.[12]

The xDrive25i is marketed as the xDrive28i in North American markets.[13]

Equipment[edit]

All models get 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, an electrically operated tailgate, a 6.5-inch iDrive system, cloth seats, and 40:20:40 split-folding rear seats.[14] The X1 is also offered in a Sport trim which adds sports seats, and in xLine and M Sport trim which adds heated leather seats.[15] Available options include a panoramic sunroof, an upgraded iDrive Navigation Plus system with an 8.8-inch touch display, and a head-up display.[16]

sDrive16d and 18i models are available with a 6-speed manual transmission and sDrive18i models can be upgraded to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.[17] The rest of the model range receives the 8-speed Steptronic automatic as standard.[18]
