The BMW X1 will receive a facelift, the German company have taken the opportunity to enhance the range, with the appearance of a cheaper model, and a new high-end version.

Outside of the vehicle, the changes are minor. The headlights are new, that is if you decide to choose the Xenon headlights (which are optional), they will be surrounded by LED, rivaling with Audi’s fleet which offer LED headlights on all models. The fog lights have also been slightly modified. BMW has used a lot less black plastic on the under body, which is refreshing to see as this was never a hit with critics. New colours are also available, and a greater choice of alloy wheels.

Inside, the new BMW X1 is equipped with a new centre console, which is driver-oriented. The finishes are a notch above the current model.

Two new models will be introduced: the XLine, with a muscular version of bumpers and side skirts of a higher dimension, plus a silver grille and topped off with 18 inch alloy wheels. Inside, we find a sports leather steering wheel, matching the color chosen.

The second model is the Sport. Also a muscular version, but with a black grille and exhaust outlets in black chrome. The interior is also black, accented with touches of red, which sets the tone.

The entry-level, we find in the rear-wheel drive SE sDrive18d (or four-wheel driveversion), equipped with the 2.0 liter diesel 141 horsepower. At the top of the range, the xDrive25d features a 2.0 liter turbodiesel 214 hp (540 Nm of torque) replaces the 202 horsepower vehicle.
