2013 BMW X1 Makes US Debut at New York Auto Show
The BMW X1, the smallest sport utility in the BMW-brand lineup, made its US debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show.
The BMW X1 crossover will go on sale in the US in the fall of 2012 starting at an MSRP of $31,545.
While the BMW X1 was previously available in other global markets for almost two years, the reworked version unveiled at the New York Auto Show is meant to be more stylish and muscular looking outside while offering a higher-quality interior.
Two models will be available: all-wheel drive xDrive35i versions will use a 3.0-liter 300-horsepower twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder and rear-wheel drive sDrive28i and all-wheel drive xDrive28i models get a 2.0-liter 240-hp twin-turbocharged four-cylinder.
Both engines are paired with an automatic gearbox and extensive BMW EfficientDynamics technology. Features including the Auto Start-Stop function (28i only), Brake Energy Regeneration, Electric Power Steering, the need-based operation of ancillary units and tyres with low rolling resistance all help to optimize fuel economy. EPA numbers haven't been announced yet.
The rear-wheel-drive sDrive28i will start at $31,545. An all-wheel-drive xDrive28i will cost $33,245. The six-cylinder 300-horsepower xDrive35i will cost $39,345. All prices exclude an $895 destination fee.
