The BMW X1 lineup is in full force at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. Along with the regular model, BMW also displayed the X1 M Sport Package with its usual Estoril Blue paint job.

At the front end, the X1 M Sport stands out with its three large air intakes giving the front apron an aggressive appearance. In addition to the aerodynamic front-end, side skirts, rear bumper and wheel arch trims in the body color, the M package also includes a revised kidney grille with eight black struts, 18 or even 19-inch two-tone light-alloy wheels and the peripheries of the BMW Individual High Gloss Satin Chrome. Rounding out the sporty appearance is the M Sport suspension which lowers the X1 by 10 millimeters.

Inside, the M Sports package brings new sport seats, an M leather steering wheel, roof lining in anthracite and a special trim. The footrest, shift lever and front wings are marked with the M logo.

In addition to these sporty features, there are practical options available as well, such as the 2-zone climate control, the PDC (Park Distance Control) at the rear, and the speed control with braking function, all part of the M Sport package.

    To be honest, I am a little underwhelmed. It looks like a chubby hatchback with M Sport parts IMO. Black plastic trims on xLine and Sport makes those models stand out as X Series with their rugged look. This looks a little awkward and feminine. But that’s just me.

    The back looks… Not so good :)

      I suspect the shape of the hatch is designed to improve aerodynamics and trunk space. It does look a bit funky. But then it’s a BMW not an AUDI.

    I haven’t read anything about a manual transmission X1 available to the States. Perhaps it will be available with the M Sport package. Anyone with any insight? I’ve little confidence but one can still hope.
