2023 BMW X1 Specs

The SUV can sprint from 0-100 km/h in under 10.5 seconds while the top speed is restricted to 200km/h. This engine comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends drive to the front wheels. It falls in the Band-B of the Vehicular Emissions Scheme (VES) as it has a total fuel consumption of 6.8L/100km/h.

This infotainment system is powered by BMW Operating System 8. There is a movable clasp to keep the phone secure along with a wireless charger tray. The latter is located at the bottom of the centre console. When compared to the outgoing iteration, the new third-gen X1 is 53mm longer, 24mm wider, and 44mm taller. The wheelbase is also longer and the SUV gets a wider track at the rear for better dynamics. The overall cargo capacity has been improved.
