BMW reveals details of new US-spec X1


BMW has revealed the details for the new and updated US-spec X1 compact luxury SUV.


  • When will the updated BMW X1 be launched in the US?

    According to BMW, the updated X1 will reach the US market by the fourth quarter of 2022.
  • How much is the BMW X1?

    Per the US arm of the German automotive brand, the new US-spec BMW X1 will start at US$38,600, excluding destination fee.
  • According to the US arm of the German automaker, the BMW X1 for the US market is larger than its predecessor — about 1.7 inches longer, 0.9 inches wider, and 1.7 inches taller. As a result, the wheelbase of the new BMW X1 is now 0.9 inches longer than before.

    Style-wise, the new BMW X1 gets squarish kidney grilles that help give the vehicle a more pronounced front end. The fore also boasts LED headlights with cornering lights that are reflected by similarly styled LED taillights at the rear. The side profile is enhanced by its large 18-inch wheels.


    “The exterior design of the new X1 sends a clear message: the all-new X1 combines everyday versatility with rugged sophistication that is ready to tackle rough terrain,” said BMW in a recent press release.

    BMW customers in the US can choose from a wide variety of exterior finishes including Blue Bay Lagoon, Cape York Green, Utah Orange, Space Silver, and BMW Individual Frozen Pure Grey.

    Additional colors from the BMW color palette include Alpine White (non-metallic), Jet Black (non-metallic), Black Sapphire, Mineral White, Phytonic Blue, Portimao Blue, Storm Bay, and San Remo Green.

    The US-spec BMW X1 can be optioned with 19-inch wheels (for vehicles equipped with either xLine design or the M Sport Package) or 20-inch wheels with performance non-run flat tires.

    Speaking of which, those who opt to get the xLine design add-on appearance pack get high-gloss body cladding; additional Satin Aluminum exterior trims; pearl-effect chrome-finished BMW kidney grille surrounds, side sill trim pieces, and trim plates under the front and rear bumpers; and exterior mirror caps in Glacier Silver.

    On the other hand, those who choose to dress up their X1s with the M Sport Package can expect larger cooling air inlets on the sides of the front end and a striking rear bumper with an integrated diffuser element on top of the performance upgrades they get from this bundle.

    Inside, the new US-spec X1 gets raised seats, that are upholstered exclusively in perforated SensaTec 2.0. Customers can choose from Oyster with contrasting stitching, Red/Black bi-color, Mocha with contrasting stitching, or Black.


    Furthermore, the BMW Curved Display which runs on the BMW Operating System 8 comes as standard. The upmarket instrument cluster and infotainment system feature BMW Maps, a Bluetooth interface, four USB-C ports as well as a 12V power socket in both the center console and the cargo area.

    The dashboard of the new BMW X1 for the US market also gets refreshed with slim air vents, stylish door trim elements, and beautiful ambient lighting.

    Other notable interior features include the optional panoramic glass sunroof and the Harman Kardon premium sound system, which raises the number of speakers to 12.

    Power will come from a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine with a Miller combustion cycle, as well as a new dual (direct and port) injection system and a revised combustion chamber geometry.

    According to BMW, the powerplant — mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission — now makes 241 horses and about 400Nm of torque.


    The updated US-spec BMW X1 is planned to launch in the US market in the fourth quarter of 2022 and is expected to have a US$38,600 price tag.
