The BMW X1 is the brand’s most affordable SUV at the lineup that is usually very good in each section. Although it is little, it delivers an ample cottage, good road manners, and solid performance ability. It is available in five distinct trim levels and those are the base, Convenience, M Sport, Premium, and M Sport Premium.
The 2018 model year hasn’t changed much except it has added a couple more standard features and rearranged equipment among models. On the other hand, the newest version of this model will enter the showrooms as the 2019 BMW X1. However, we truly doubt that it should be upgraded at least visually since it hasn’t been changed much since it has came all-new as the 2016 model.
2019 BMW X1 Changes
The 2019 X1 has been spied sporting at the minimum of the camouflage and which partially covers the taillights. However, they do not seem much different but may become only a minor shift. So, the new BMW will then be powered by a plug-in hybrid unit alongside the well-known 4-cylinder.
According to the spy shots, the 2019 BMW X1 won’t change significantly in the current model and the sole novelty we’ll see are the slightly restyled headlamps. The front fascia should keep the exact same kidney grille, optional LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights which will be standard. The M Sport variant will include high-gloss roof rails and sport suspension.
2019 BMW X1 Interior, Design
We assume that the interior of the 2019 BMW X1 should also remain the same. It features two rows of chairs and it is able to accommodate five passengers. The head and leg room are typically very good even for the rear passengers. The cargo room is pretty good too and there is a space of 27.1 cubic feet. If you fold down the rear seats, it offers the room of 58.7 cubic feet.
In the technology front, the X1 comes standard with power adjustable front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a 6.5-inch infotainment, 18-inch wheels, and a rearview camera. The M Sport Package adds keyless ignition, interior light, and a panoramic moonroof.
2019 BMW X1 Engine, Specs
The 2019 BMW X1 will reunite with the exact same engine as the 2018 model year, but additionally, it will use a new one. So, the already familiar is a 2.0-liter inline-4 turbocharged engine. This unit has the output signal of 228 horsepower and the torque of 258 lb-ft. It works with an 8-speed automatic transmission and there is an option between the front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations.
The front-wheel variant gets 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. As for the all-wheel configuration, the amounts are 22/31 mpg in the city/highway drive. On the other hand, according to the latest news, the 2019 BMW X1 has been captured during its testing using a plug in hybrid engine for the first time. Regrettably, we still don’t have any details or information concerning the engine and specific performance.
2019 BMW X1 Release Date, Price
Although it is not yet official, the 2019 BMW X1 may be presented sometime by autumn. The pricing must stay similar and it is in a range from $35,000-$40,000.
