The BMW X1 is in its element everywhere, inspiring with its precise handling, whether on-road or off-road. This is made possible by a range of perfectly coordinated components. The basis for this comes from the near-optimum weight distribution of 57:43 (front/rear) on the two axles. The suspension designed for maximum dynamics provides you with precise feedback at all times. At the same time, the BMW X1 reduces fuel consumption and emissions thanks to comprehensive BMW EfficientDynamics measures. And, as a result, you notice the sheer driving pleasure with every metre.

BMW EfficientDynamics Technology.

The combination of economical BMW TwinPower Turbo engines, intelligent lightweight construction and sophisticated aerodynamics form the basis in the BMW X1 for enhanced driving pleasure with reduced fuel consumption. Rounding off this approach are BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as the standard-feature energy management with Automatic Start/Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration. Options such as the 8-speed Steptronic transmission help to further increase efficiency and dynamics in the BMW X1.

BMW X1 sDrive18i.

The BMW sDrive18i with the new BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder petrol engine offers more than enough power with 136 hp and an extremely high level of efficiency. In combination with the transverse engine, front-wheel drive is a space-saving solution for vehicles that are compact but offer a great deal of room in the interior.


The Steptronic transmissions set standards in comfort, dynamics and efficiency. They are a key constituent of the BMW EfficientDynamics measures. The especially fine spacing of the gears permits optimum power build-up at all speeds. This reduces fuel consumption substantially while, at the same time, providing you with even more sportiness and dynamics.
