We bring you the first wallpapers of the new 2016 BMW X1. Yesterday, BMW unveiled the second generation F48 X1, a car that has been received with enthusiasm by the BMW community. Already a high-volume seller for BMW, we expect the new X1 to do even better in sales for the brand, thanks to its beautiful design, efficient engines and premium materials.
Not only the design has been improved, but also the dimensions of the X1 have increased. The new 2016 BMW X1 has grown quite a bit over the previous model, sprouting 53 millimeters in height, with a 36 millimeter raise in the front seating position, to give the X1 a more commanding view of the road. This increase in size, and switch to front-wheel drive architecture, has also given the X1 better interior space, to the tune of 37 millimeters more rear knee room and 85 liters more cargo space, bringing the total to 505 liters. With the rear seats folded down, the X1 has 1,550 liters of cargo space; making the X1 ideal for those long family road trips.
Engine options for the new 2016 BMW X1 will be a bunch of 2.0 liters, two petrol and two diesel. There will be an X1 xDrive20i, xDrive25i, xDrive18d and xDrive25d as well as an sDrive20i which will be front-wheel drive. All engines will displace 2.0 liters and all will feature BMW’s TwinPower turbocharger technology. The xDrive25i and xDrive25d have 231 horsepower, but the petrol engine will have 258 lb-ft of torque and the diesel will have 332 lb-ft. An Aisin eight-speed automatic will be standard on most models, with the xDrive18d being available with a newly designed six-speed manual.
The BMW X1 xDrive28i will be the exclusive model in the US at launch featuring a 2.0 liter TwinTurbo 4 cylinder engine from BMW’s new family of modular engines with maximum output of 228 horsepower.
The X1 will be available with such new options as Dynamic Damper Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, a Panoramic Moonroof, a Heads-Up Display and even Traffic Jam Assist which will take over driving at up to 37 mph and can control speed, proximity to other vehicles and lane-keeping. So the X1 won’t just be the baby BMW, it will be high-tech and sophisticated, much like BMW’s higher-end models.
