Entry-level sDrive 18d employs a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo diesel providing 105kW/320Nm.

From the BMW EfficientDynamics department, all BMW X1 models now feature fuel-saving brake energy regeneration and auto start/stop (manual and auto).

On the outside, the latest BMW X1 can be identified by new front and rear bumpers, new headlights and integration of the cornering lights into the rear-view mirrors.
