2020 BMW X1 LCI arrives in October from $44,500

BMW Australia has announced the pricing of the facelifted (or LCI in BMW speak) 2020 BMW X1 which goes on sale in October 2019.

Priced from $44,500 for the sDrive18i, the front-wheel driven, entry-level model is motivated by a 103kW/220Nm 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that is good for a 0-100km/h dash in 9.6 seconds.

It comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, Sensatec upholstery, an 8.8-inch touch screen with Navigation System, Apple CarPlay, LED headlights, wireless charging, Driving Assistant and Parking Assistant, reverse camera and anti-dazzle interior mirror.

Moving up to the $49,900 sDrive18d brings a 110kW/330Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine driving the front wheels. 0-100km/h drops to 9.2 seconds and it comes with the same standard gear as the base model.

Meanwhile, the $48,500 sDrive20i is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 141kW/280Nm directed at the front wheels. It will sprint from 0-100km/h in 7.6 seconds and adds a larger 10.25-inch touch display with Navigation System Plus, head-up display, automatic tailgate and Lights package.

Finally, the range-topping $62,900 xDrive25i is the only all-wheel drive in the range and is propelled by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine generating 170kW/350Nm. 0-100km/h is dispatched in just 6.5 seconds.

The xDrive25i also comes with more goodies including leather upholstery, 19-inch alloy wheels, heated and electrically operated front seats, rear seat adjustment, comfort access, anti-dazzle exterior mirrors, dual-zone climate control and M Sports steering.

BMW Group Australia CEO, Vikram Pawah said: “Since its debut in 2009, the BMW X1 has been one of our highest selling X models and continues to fuel the success of the BMW X range in Australia.”
