The updated BMW X1 compact SUV goes on sale in the USA. The base price is from $36,195.
Previously we informed you of the 2020 BMW X1 for Europe, where it starts from 32,700. Now about the model for America.
What is new?
After a slight facelifting, BMW’s best-selling SUV received a bigger grille, more sculptured front bumper and a new rear one, more chrome accents, tinted LED taillights, 18- and 19-inch wheels of new design.
Three new colors are offered now – Jucaro Beige, Misano Blue, Storm Bay, while Estoril Blue is not available any more. The company also refreshed an optional M Sport package.
Under the skin you’ll find the same 2.0-liter 228-hp inline-4 turbo motor mated either with front- or all-wheel drive and an upgraded 8-speed automatic transmission.
In the cabin an 8-inch infotainment screen, which was optional before, becomes standard, as well as navigation and Apple CarPlay. Materials of interior trim are of better quality now.
The entry-level front-wheel-drive sDrive28i model costs $36,195 ($250 over the previous price). The all-wheel-drive xDrive28i vehicle starts at $38,195 ($2,000 higher).
The maker says the 2020 BMW X1 will arrive at the U.S. dealership in late 2019.
