BMW’s compact crossover, the X1, has grown up. The smallest off-roader in the BMW range brings a spirit of freedom to the everyday with its exquisite driving dynamics, space and flexibility, able to complement the most adventurous of lifestyles.

Lighter and larger than its predecessor, find increased space in the refined, characterful cabin, completed by premium materials, a higher driving position, a wider and taller windscreen, clever storage compartments, comfortable seats and intelligent seating configurations - turn the 505 litres of load space into a vast 1,550 litres with the seats folded flat.

This practical, economical, premium compact SUV turns heads wherever it goes – is that because of its character? Its own design? Its twin tailpipes or redesigned headlights and taillights? Or maybe because of its broad, confident stance and strikingly athletic features. It’s unmistakably ‘X’ in both how it looks and how it drives, as it’s versatile, reliable, practical, resilient, efficient and exciting.

0 – 60mph takes just 6.3 seconds and top speed can be as high as 143mph, plus added traction is offered with all-wheel drive.

BMW’s latest three and four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines are all available to be transversely mounted for the first time alongside the 8-speed automatic transmission, joining the new platform and new on-board and all-round systems technology.

All models come with BMW Business Navigation and BMW ConnectedDrive, plus you can also benefit from adaptive LED headlights, power-folding rear seats, hands-free operation for the power lift gate, lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning and automated parking to name a few options.
