The 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.

BMW USA set the base price for the 2016 BMW X1 at $35,795, including destination and handling included; a $3,945 increase over the previous model.

    Incredibly disappointed by this huge price increase, particularly since the new platform supposedly saves BMW money.

      I guess we’re paying for more tech and better design

        When will we see M- Sport, etc? It looks like only XLine is available.

        Yup you cannot want more car for the same dough…

          It’s more profit margin plain and simple. Sure you can have more can for the same dough. Input costs are falling (look at commodities), the robots making the car are the same, the dollar vs euro is making BMW buckets of money. When I think of the higher price of a BMW I just think about the red carpet service I get from my dealer. With MB you pay a monthly fee additional. Im a fan but not thrilled with my last vehicle. I’m looking to trade it in for one of these.

    While I personally have no interest in this, in a world of of 40K Equinoxes and 35K Rav4’s, I think it’s priced pretty fairly.
