BMW reveals the new X1

The second generation of the successful model, sold in more than 730,000 units, offers improved technical features, a new look more in line with the X family and a more spacious cabin.


Set to go on sale on October 2015, the new model has grown in height compared to its predecessor (+53 mm), which has helped increase the spaciousness of the interior. And its significantly raised seating position (+36 mm at the front, +64 mm at the rear) optimizes the driver’s view out over the road.

Compared with the outgoing model, the new X1 has more rugged proportions, with a focus on its road planted stance.

The side view is characterized by the bold, rectangular wheel arches – typical BMW X models- and muscular fenders.

At the rear the surfaces feature a different treatment and the tail lights  have been shaped differently, with a T-graphics rather than a L-shaped design like in the 1st gen X1.

Inside, the dashboard look has been revised: it has a more linear design and the 8.8-inch, Control Display has a freestanding position. Among the onboard equipment is a Head-Up Display system.
