BMW X1 2020 pricing and spec confirmed: Lower point of entry for luxury small SUV

BMW’s X1 is now $1400 more affordable than before, kicking off at $44,500 before on-road costs for the sDrive18i.

BMW Australia has reshuffled pricing and specification for its updated X1, dropping pricing for the two base petrol versions, while also lifting its flagship xDrive25i by $2000 to $62,900 before on-road costs.

Still kicking the range off is the sDrive18i, which has dropped $1400 to $44,500, while second-to-top xDrive20i is now $2400 cheaper than before at $48,500.

Pricing for the single diesel-powered offering, the sDrive18d, remains unchanged at $49,900.

From the outside, the facelifted X1 can be determined by the new one-piece kidney grille and hexagonal-shaped LED headlights, while at the rear, larger exhaust outlets and LED tail-lights can be glimpsed.

Inside, buyers are treated to a wireless smartphone charger, anti-dazzle rearvew mirror and 8.8-inch touchscreen multimedia system with satellite navigation and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Other standard equipment in the sDrive18i and sDrive18d also includes 18-inch wheels, ‘Sensatec’ upholstery, leather-trimmed sports steering wheel, reversing camera and an ‘xLine’ exterior styling pack.

Stepping up to the sDrive20i adds a ‘Navigation System Plus’ 10.25-inch touchscreen multimedia system, head-up display, power-operated tailgate and ‘X1’ puddle lamps.

The top-tier xDrive25i gains leather interior, 19-inch wheels, heated front seats, keyless entry, rear seat adjustment, two-zone air conditioning and an M sports steering wheel.

Powering the sDrive18i is a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine producing 103kW/220Nm.

The sDrive18d kicks things up to 110kW/330Nm from its 2.0-litre turbo-diesel, while the sDrive20i and xDrive25i are propelled by force-fed petrol engines with the same displacement outputting 141kW/280Nm and 170kW/350Nm respectively.

All versions of the X1 send drive to the front wheels, barring the top-spec xDrive25i that sports an all-wheel-drive configuration.

The base sDrive18i and sDrive20i are equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the sDrive18d and xDrive25i are fitted with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic.
