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.
