The next-gen BMW X1 was launched today at the 2016 Auto Expo. Currently being offered only with a diesel variant, the new BMW X1’s price starts at 29.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), and goes all the way up to 39.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). While the new BMW X1 is now also available for bookings, deliveries will begin only in April, 2016.

The new BMW-X1 SUV is based on the UKL platform that allows it to shed 135Kgs. It also gets improved cabin space, thanks to the taller and wider body shell. The all-new BMW-X1’s wheelbase has been increased by 90mm, and also sports an 85-litre increase in boot space and a 37mm increase in rear knee room.

The list of most noticeable design updates on the new BMW-X1 comprises larger dimensions, updated LED head- and tail-lamp units and a mildly updated form of the company’s signature kidney-shaped 2-part front grille.

As mentioned above, the German luxury car manufacturer’s latest SUV is available only with a 2.0-litre diesel engine for now; a petrol engine will be added to the line-up later this year.
