While the 2020 BMW X1 broke cover just a few hours ago, the company has already started taking orders for it in the UK, where customer deliveries will start mid-July.
Offered in four distinct trim levels called the SE, Sport, xLine and M Sport, the restyled X1 has a £28,795 ($36,475/€32,625) starting price in sDrive18i spec. Getting the 192 PS (189 hp / 141 kW) engine instead of the 140 PS (138 hp / 103 kW) powering the entry-level model means paying at least £31,935 ($40,452/€36,183).
Meanwhile, the sDrive18d diesel, with 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW), will set you back at least £30,545 ($38,691/€34,608).
The aforementioned versions are all front-wheel drive, but from £32,045 ($40,591/€36,308), you could get the xDrive18d 4WD model, with its 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) diesel engine, or the 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW) xDrive20d, from £34,595 ($43,822/€39,197).
Next March, the lineup will be completed with the addition of the X1 xDrive25e plug-in hybrid, which will combine the TwinPower Turbo engine, with 125 PS (123 hp / 92 kW), driving the front wheels, with a 95 PS (94 hp / 70 kW) electric motor that will power the rear axle. The 9.7 kWh battery will help it drive on electricity for more than 50 km (31 miles), BMW claims.
Aside from its updated styling, equipment and the further addition of the PHEV model, the 2020 X1 comes with other highlights too, such as the revised navigation system with the standard 8.8-inch or optional 10.25-inch displays. The full-color head-up display is available as an option, whereas the Lighting Package, with freely selectable color tones, is standard in the xLine and M Sport, and optional in the SE and Sport.
Users will also enjoy the BMW Connected App, which is described as “the next stage of in-car personalization”. This feature enables the transfer of content from the smartphone to the infotainment system and when coupled to the standard Remote Services, the phone can be used to lock or unlock the doors, locate the car and check certain aspects.
