Facelifted 2020 BMW X1 Starts At $36,195 In The U.S.

BMW has announced pricing for the 2020 X1 in the United States, shortly after similar details were shared for the Australian and European markets.

The sole variant of the new X1 sold in the United States is the sDrive28i and xDrive28i models. Both are fitted with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine delivering 228 hp and the only difference between the pair is that the sDrive28i is front-wheel drive and the xDrive28i is all-wheel drive. The duo share an eight-speed automatic transmission.

BMW says the all-wheel drive model can reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in a respectable 6.3 seconds, not that we can imagine many owners will ever test out the vehicle’s straight-line performance.

Those looking to pick up an X1 sDrive28i will need to part ways with $36,195, a $250 price jump over the pre-facelift model. Similarly, the xDrive28i jumps up by $250 to $38,195. Other markets, such as Australia, also receive the new X1 in sDrive18i, sDrive18d, sDrive20i, and xDrive25i guises where local prices vary between $44,500 ($31,320 USD) and $62,900 ($44,270 USD).

Buyers in the United States can choose to have their sDrive28i or xDrive28i models fitted with an available M Sport package and for the 2020 model year, have three additional color options to choose from; Jucaro Beige, Misano Blue, and Storm Bay. Estoril Blue has been dropped.

All models receive an 8.8-inch infotainment screen as standard complete with navigation and Apple CarPlay. The duo can be purchased with leather upholstery not just on the seats but also on the lower dash and door panels.

      really, are you sure? that’s crazy

      Doesn’t matter. It didn’t work well anyway. It was the lowest rated system in a comparison test basically because it didn’t stop for anything in its way.

        Cross traffic let is awesome. Loved it in my Lexus.

      Hmm…good catch! Thats a major letdown for a car in this price class.

    My friend leased one of the pre-facelift versions a few years ago, and it was by far one of the most uncomfortable vehicles I have ever rode in.

      I had a loaner once. It only had 2500 miles on it. I thought it was a pretty standard driving experience that was rougher around the edges than you would have expected from the “UDM”.
      So yeah, it sucked.

    A digital cluster would have been nice but at least the price increase is moderate.

    It looks pretty nice to my eyes, but some more ground clearance would’ve been cool. The interior though, is a let down. Sure its nice enough but simply does not look as modern as it should for a 2020 BMW.
