BMW brought in the facelift of X1, its popular entry-level SUV, on Thursday at a starting price of ₹35.90 lakh (ex showroom). The X1 Concept was first showcased to the world at the Paris Motor Show back in 2008. And when it was eventually brought to Indian shores, it was billed as the most affordable BMW that targeted aspirational buyers looking for their first SUV in the luxury segment. As such, the vehicle has enjoyed considerable success over the years and its 2020 version promises to build on it.
