2013 BMW X1 | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine – As the first premium vehicle of its kind, the BMW X1 is a true trailblazer in the compact segment. After some two-and-a-half years, sales of the compact BMW X model built at BMW Plant in Leipzig and in Tiexi, China have already exceeded 275 000 units. Now this all-round talent emerges with renewed vigour to meet a raft of new challenges. With its specially modified body design, meticulously upgraded interior, comprehensively revised engine portfolio, the new range of BMW Lines and further innovative equipment features, the new BMW X1 delivers an even more intensive experience of the hallmark driving pleasure for which the brand is known. In parallel with the launch of the new BMW X1, preparations are under way for its US market launch. Further growth impulses emanate from production in China: the new BMW X1 models destined for the Chinese market are being built in the newly opened plant at Tiexi in Shenyang Province.

The X1 that hits the market this fall is actually a mildly facelifted, mid-cycle update of the X1. Outside, its design has been lightly reworked from the debut model to be a bit more aggressive, although it is still clearly a BMW crossover that looks like a 7/8ths-scale X3 from most angles. More body-color painted accents make the refreshed model stand out a bit more, while new headlamps and available LED accent lighting (included with the Xenon light package) bring the X1’s look in line with the rest of BMW’s lineup.

The X1’s powertrains will mirror those of its X3 big brother. Namely, BMW’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (X1 sDrive28i and xDrive28i) and 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder (xDrive35i) will be offered. The four puts out 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, while the U.S. market-exclusive six is rated at 300 ponies and 300 lb-ft of twist. To save gas, the sDrive28i is equipped with an automatic start/stop function and standard rear-wheel drive, resulting in fuel efficiency of 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Both the xDrive28i and xDrive35i feature all-wheel-drive and are rated at 22/30 mpg and 18/27 mpg, respectively.

2013 BMW X1 price. | The BMW is the only vehicle in this group that is based on a rear-wheel-drive platform, which it loosely shares with the 1- and the 3-series. In fact, the entry-level model will be the rear-wheel-drive X1 sDrive28i, powered by a 240-hp, 2.0-liter four and priced at $31,545. For another $1700, BMW will also offer an all-wheel-drive version with this engine, dubbed the X1 xDrive28i. The top of the line X1 will be the all-wheel-drive xDrive35i, powered by BMW’s 300-hp, 3.0-liter inline-six and offered at $39,345. Both engines are force-fed by a single turbo, while BMW insists on its misleading “TwinPower” terminology. Likewise, the “28” and “35” monikers bear no relation to the actual engine displacement. The 2.0-liter four is equipped with a gas-saving stop-start system. Neither performance nor fuel-economy figures have been given at this point. Unfortunately, none of the X1 models are available with BMW’s excellent six-speed manual.

2013 BMW X1 interior :
2013 BMW X1 interior. | The modifications to the design of the new BMW X1 interior create an even more vivid showcase of the sporty driving pleasure, cutting-edge versatility and premium feel this car provides. The side of the centre console angled towards the driver is now shallower and boasts a particularly high-grade surface quality. This sharply highlights the driver-focused principle of the cockpit design. The panel for the sound and climate system controls now has a high-gloss black surface to match the air vent surround.

The new BMW X1 comes as standard with a storage compartment in the centre of the instrument panel. In vehicles featuring an optional navigation system, this houses the central Control Display for the iDrive operating system. Chrome accents on the side surrounds of the onboard monitor highlight this equipment feature. High-quality electroplated surrounds for the gearshift lever and the centre console cup holder as well as a chrome clip on the headlight switch add the finishing touches to the interior’s exclusive ambience.

The new BMW X1 also showcases its versatility when it comes to potential transportation usage. The rear seatback can be split 40 : 20 : 40, with the three sections folding down individually or jointly according to requirements, and can be adjusted in ten stages. The angle of tilt ranges from 31° – a particularly comfortable angle for passengers all the way to a near-vertical cargo position of 1°. This facility alone means the luggage space can vary between 360 and 480 litres, with a capacity of 420 litres when the rear seatback is in its normal position. Folding all three seat elements down fully creates a virtually flat cargo floor with a loading capacity of 1 350 litres. Two 46-inch golf bags can be stowed widthways or, after folding down the central section of the seatback, lengthwise.

2013 BMW X1 exterior. | The successful concept of transferring familiar BMW X features to the compact segment has since led to increased competition in the vehicle class spawned by the BMW X1. What remains uncontested is the BMW X1’s leadership position in terms of sportiness and efficiency. This lead is now being extended: the relationship between performance and fuel consumption has been further optimised thanks to engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, an eight-speed automatic transmission that is unique in this segment, the Auto Start-Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration, ECO PRO mode and a wider range of BMW EfficientDynamics technology. Setting a particularly impressive example here is the BMW X1 sDrive20d EfficientDynamics Edition with average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres (62.7 mpg) and CO2 figures of 119 grams per kilometre.

The xLine brings undertray elements for the front and rear fascias, side-skirt covers, matte-finish air-intake and kidney-grille slats and 18-inch Y-spoke alloy wheels. The interior is upgraded with a leather-wrapped multifunction sport steering wheel and copper-colored trim, while Nevada Leather upholstery and matte-wood trim is optional. The Sport Line brings air intakes and kidney grille slats in high-gloss black, black-chrome tailpipe finishers and 18-inch double-spoke alloys in addition to the xLine’s undertray and side-skirt elements. The cabin benefits from sports seats, a leather-trimmed sport steering wheel and gearshift lever with red stitching and black high-gloss interior trim with optional aluminum accents.

Those who enjoy spirited driving should opt for the M Sport package, which adds a sport suspension, 18-inch M double spoke wheels, an M Aero kit, shadowline trim and high-gloss roof rails. The cabin gains sport seats, an M sport steering wheel, Dark Aluminum or Light Fineline wood trim and an anthracite headliner.
