Each new BMW X1 model features petrol or diesel BMW TwinPower Turbo engines in four cylinder configurations, which guarantee the kind of performance and power you would expect from much larger engines (thanks to variable turbine geometry). Plus, each of these engines has been fine tuned to minimise friction and reduce thermal losses. This means that emissions are reduced (to as low as 114g/km in the sDrive 18d), and efficiency is greatly increased, so you get more out of every litre of fuel.
The driving experience is enhanced by features such as Dynamic Damper Control, which provides superior handling in all situations. The eight-speed Steptronic transmission is standard on sDrive18d, whilst sDrive20i, xDrive20d and xDrive25i variants come with the eight-speed Sports transmission with paddle shifters. These ensure incredibly soft gear changes, greater driving comfort and significantly reduced fuel consumption.
This cost-effectiveness is aided by innovations such as ECO PRO mode, which, when selected, maximises the efficiency of everything from driving style to climate control, allowing you to save up to 20 percent on fuel.
Such innovations and efficiency set the BMW X1 apart from its competitors, making it the most modern and dynamic vehicle in its segment.
