Quick Review

This entry level crossover offering from BMW has been sitting quite comfortably till now churning out decent sales figures for the brand. But when BMW decided to spice things up especially when competition took aggressive strives forward, the newly introduced X1 got a fresh new avatar both on the skin and also on the inside. Shedding away its extended nose and a small wagon styled crossover tag, the X1 can now be called a pure compact SUV. All thanks to its urban design which is more aggressive and SUV-like. This is evident from its shortened bonnet with fine creases at the corners that runs upto the kidney grille at the front. The LED headlamps now run more onto the sides with a sweptback design and thus give it a much wider and aggressive look. What used to be a hunkered down element before, the front bumper now proudly adorns a large airdam at the centre and pseudo air dam vents at the corners with brushed aluminum finish along with an elevated skid plate. All of this makes X1 a beefed up SUV from its predecessor. Move onto the sides and one can clearly see what the new design brings to the X1. The long station wagon feel is nowhere to be seen with much shorter front overhangs and what you get now is a sharp and raised stance of an SUV with a crisp shoulder line running from the tail lights onto the front quarter panel. Black cladding onto the sides and a side skid plate offering as well completes its SUV look. Its integrated roof rails now sit quite low and they appear to be a part of the roof line. The fact that the new X1 is shorter than its previous avatar on length, it has gained more room on the inside with an extended wheelbase and now sits much higher than before. A lot has changed on the rear as well for the new X1 as it now sports twin exhausts wrapped in dark grey cladding along with a rear skid plate. The newly appointed wraparound LED tail lights are quite attractive offering BMWs J shaped LED strips. To make this compact SUV go more agile, one also has the option of going for the M sport package. This gives a sporty stance to the X1 with an aerodynamic package with new side skirts, body cladding, diffuser inserts and also M badging and a new designed kidney grille along with stiffer suspension. Nevertheless, with or without these alterations, we have to say the new X1 does offer a proper SUV look now from all possible angles.
