The new 2015 BMW X1 has been spotted in the beautiful Chestnut Bronze Color. The strong brown paint job shines when in direct sunlight and gives the car a more premium look. Bronze and brownish color came back in full force about three years ago and more manufactures are now resorting to the unusual color.
This X1 was displayed at the international media launch in Austria was fitted with some options from the BMW Accessories Program, including a roof rack for attaching boxes or sports equipment, a rear bike carrier, a trailer hitch, various child seats and mounts for iPad and other tablets. Inside, the BMW X1 is shown wearing standard cloth seats in anthracite color with grid pattern.
The model displayed is the 2015 BMW X1 xDrive20d which is powered by the new four-cylinder B47 engine producing 184 horsepower. The small, yet potent X1 runs from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds.
The top speed is 219 km/h and in the EU cycle, the X1 xDrive20d is rated, depending on tires, at 4.9 to 5.1 liters per 100 kilometers.
We recently had the chance to drive the U.S. bound X1 xDrive28i and the review can be found here.
