Still Looks Familiar

BMW X1 Front

Even with the generation upgrade, the new X1 does not look drastically different over the previous model. The entry-level SUV in BMW’s portfolio looks more like a refreshed or updated version with styling details that match those of its bigger siblings. BMW has equipped it with slim new LED headlights, a bigger chrome grille, and chrome elements in the bumper. 

BMW X1 Side

In profile, the X1’s increased height is noticeable and it has carried on with its sloping roofline design. It has lost the separate rear quarter glass panels and its body side cladding now comes with skid plates as well. While the globally sold third-gen X1 has been fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels as standard and can go up to 21-inches, the India-spec SUV gets 18-inch alloy wheels only. At the rear, it gets a raked windshield, horizontally stacked new L-shaped LED taillights, and a chunky bumper housing a faux skid plate.

A New Cabin Experience

BMW X1 Cabin

The biggest update for the new X1 is the revamped cabin, now featuring BMW’s latest curved-display setup. BMW has provided it with sleeker AC vents that almost run the width of the cabin while the SUV also gets a floating centre console. A lot of controls have now been integrated into the infotainment system (enabled by voice controls), giving the interior a minimalistic look. The SUV is equipped with 10.25-inch digital driver’s displays and 10.7-inch touchscreen infotainment systems running the latest Operating System (8).

Equipment On Board

The X1 gets park assist and a reversing camera along with some automated driving tech including cruise control with brake function and front-collision warning as well.
