BMW has announced two new models with two new engines for the new BMW X1 compact Sports Activity Vehicles, both of which are petrol-powered.


The two new models will provide the BMW X1 with a new entry-level rear-drive variant - called the BMW X1 sDrive18i - and a new top spec four-wheel drive variant - called the BMW X1 xDrive25i.

Making up the new entry-level variant is a 2.0-litre four cylinder engine offering 110kW of power and 200Nm of torque. This package comes with a manual transmission as standard or with an optional automatic. It sprints (drives slowly) from 0-100km/h in 9.7 seconds.

BMW's new X1 xDrive25i comes with a more potent 3.0-litre straight six engine offering 160kW of power and 280Nm of torque. This model is fitted with a six-speed automatic transmission as standard and sprints from 0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds.

BMW Group Australia Managing Director, Stavros Yallouridis, said about the cars,

"Many SAV customers enjoy the ride-height, load space and all-round practicality of a lifestyle vehicle without necessarily wanting all-terrain capabilities. For these customers, the new sDrive X1 models offer better fuel economy, even better on-road agility and exceptional value for money.”
