The new-gen BMW X1 made its global debut earlier this year and gets multiple upgrades like the new larger kidney grille, slimmer headlamps with L-shaped DRLs and new flush door handles. The new X1 retains its sporty styling and is a lot more SUV-esque in appearance than its predecessor. It’s also grown in proportions, which makes it longer than the Audi Q3 in the segment. The model will also compete with the Mercedes-Benz GLA and Volvo XC40 in the segment.

Inside, the new BMW X1 gets a similar dashboard as the 2 Series Active Tourer. Upgrades include the new curved display with the 10.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and the 10.25-inch digital console. It will run the latest iDrive 8 user interface. The larger proportions also translate to better cabin space, especially at the rear. The boot capacity has also grown to 500 litres.

The engines will be paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission. Expect to see xDrive all-wheel drive system on the top variants of the SUV. Globally, BMW also revealed the iX1 electric SUV alongside the new X1. It’s unclear if BMW India plans to bring the model to India at a later date. However, the iX1 will witness some direct competition from the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge, Kia EV6 and even the Mercedes-Benz EQB.
