BMW Group Australia has added new standard equipment to its X1 and X2 small SUVs, while rejigging pricing for a number of key variants.
The X1 gains the latest 'Navigation System Plus' sat-nav interface along with a head-up display and wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity as standard.
The former is displayed on an 8.8-inch touchscreen display that can be controlled via the console controller or via BMW's speech-recognition software.
Pricing for the high-spec X1 sDrive20i is now set at $50,900 plus on-road costs, a $3700 price reduction, and the range-topping xDrive25i is $600 less expensive at $60,900.
However, the entry-level X1 sDrive18i and the sDrive18d remain unchanged at $45,900 and $49,900 respectively.
The slightly larger X2 SUV has also been treated to standard Apple CarPlay for the mid-life update, with pricing dropped by $3000 for the entry-spec sDrive18i from $49,900 to $46,900.
Despite the price reduction, the sDrive18i has now adopted uprated 19-inch light alloy wheels finished in 'Orbit Grey'.
The updated X1 and X2 have been in production since October, with local deliveries expected to start in January next year.
