Speaking about the vehicle, BMW Australia’s CEO, Vikram Pawah, said: “Since its debut in 2009, the BMW X1 has been one of our highest selling X models, and continues to fuel the success of the BMW X range in Australia. The popular SAV continues to deliver great value, and I’m sure the impressive redesign will resonate with our customers.”
