The next-gen BMW X1 was launched today at the 2016 Auto Expo. Currently being offered only with a diesel variant, the new BMW X1's price starts at ₹ 29.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), and goes all the way up to ₹ 39.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). While the new BMW X1 is now also available for bookings, deliveries will begin only in April, 2016.
The new BMW X1 SUV is based on the UKL platform that allows it to shed 135Kgs. It also gets improved cabin space, thanks to the taller and wider body shell. The all-new BMW X1's wheelbase has been increased by 90mm, and also sports an 85-litre increase in boot space and a 37mm increase in rear knee room.
The list of most noticeable design updates on the new BMW X1 comprises larger dimensions, updated LED head- and tail-lamp units and a mildly updated form of the company's signature kidney-shaped 2-part front grille.
As mentioned above, the German luxury car manufacturer's latest SUV is available only with a 2.0-litre diesel engine for now; a petrol engine will be added to the line-up later this year.
The new BMW X1 will go up against names like the Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q3.
