Next month, BMW will introduce the U.S. version of the X1 mini-SAV at the 2012 New York Auto Show. The only variant to be offered in the U.S. is the X1 xDrive28i powered by the new N20 2.0 liter four-cylinder TwinPower turbocharged engine. The new unit produces 245 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque (258 lb of torque).

The engine can be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 8-speed automatic transmission.

In the EU test cycle, the BMW X1 xDrive28i runs with 7.9 liters/100 km (an improvement of 1.5 liters), has CO2 emissions of 183 g/km (down by 38g).

Along with the introduction to the U.S. market, BMW will also unveil the latest changes to the X1’s design. As seen on previous spy photos, the mild life cycle impulse brings updates to the front and rear bumpers, as well as the addition of signal indicators in the side external mirrors.

The 2013 BMW X1 will hit U.S. dealerships in September of this year.

    The interior of the X1 is extremely cheap and I don’t think the American public will like it very much. This is the reason why BMW didn’t bring it to the US in the first place. Note: The plastics of the X1 is horrible. If you get leather trim, the only thing that is going to be leather are the seats, nothing else. You get this fake leather material in the armrest and the door panels, which feels horribly cheap.

    Furthermore, isn’t the facelift coming soon? Why buy this old shape???

      That’s what the mid cycle update (which the US gets) is all about. If you actually read the article or the 50 other articles written about the update you would know its to upgrade the interior and make some body updates. The body must be pretty damn good to be the best selling SUV in Europe. I really like the body so I actually hope they only change the lights to LED.

    When I was in Germany last summer, I beheld the X1 for the first time in person. This car is not a “mini-SAV” as it’s big. Almost as big as X3. And god-awfully ugly too.

    Don’t understand who buys this car. So ugly and primitive (X3 too)¬†

    Please don’t simply judge a car with it outlooking…X1 is a quite good looking car when you look at it in person…

    All the information I’ve seen to date says the X1 will only be available with an automatic transmission Horatio, where did you get the info that a manual will be offered as well? Can we dare hope for a manual?
