One of the main concerns we had regarding the new BMW X1 was the pricing. For the new entry-level compact SAV to be successful, it was imperative that the pricing will be set accordingly to the current market conditions and most important, relevant to the other models in the BMW line-up.
BMW chose the gasoline powered X1 sDrive18i as its entry level model and set a base price of 27,200 euros. In Germany, the base price for the bigger X3 model, xDrive20i, is 35,300 euros. Going even further, the X1 xDrive18d will sell for 31,550 euros, while the X3 xDrive18d 35,550 euros.
The most expensive X1 is the all-wheel drive gasoline xDrive28i which has a base price of 41,500 euros. The top X3 model is the xDrive35d at 53,000 euros.
Bottom line is that there are no surprises here, BMW has played this safe and priced the X1 accordingly, setting it apart from the X3 line-up. When the second generation X3 will launch next year, we expect this pricing gap to become even bigger, making the X1 an even more attractive choice.
Here are the base prices for all the other X1 models:
- BMW X1 sDrive18i – 27.200€
- BMW X1 sDrive18d – 29.550€
- BMW X1 xDrive18d – 31.550€
- BMW X1 sDrive20d – 32.400€
- BMW X1 xDrive20d – 34.400€
- BMW X1 xDrive23d – 38.800€
- BMW X1 xDrive28i – 41.500€
