When u are in the market to buy a luxury SUV there are numbers of cars available in the market to attract customers towards them, One rival competing is BMW X1, In order to attract customers BMW is offering number of features and technology in X1, In-spite of offering so much features can X1 become the best luxury SUV in the market we find out.
EXTERIORS:- BMW has changed the exterior of the car in order to bring some freshness in the design so as the car looks like a next generation car rather looking like a face-lift. And i must say BMW has hit the right boxes here, Be it the the new muscular grille separated in two parts or the very stylish laser light headlamps, all look classy and add to the handsome look of the car.
The bonut is low slung which will help to give driver a good visibility of what drama is happening on the road. What i liked the most about x1 is the rear which is absolutely stunning, As the backlights looks very classy and also one thing which i liked is the increased ground clearance of the car, As in the last gen model it was very low and this was the only reason why number of customers drifted apart from BMW as they were not feeling like they were sitting in a SUV, Which issue the company has resolved.
INTERIORS:- the interiors of the car are also very new as the X1’s interiors impress with its chocolate-brown and black theme which is good as options are available for the customers to choose from. The three-spoke ‘M’ steering with it over sized paddleshifters looks sporty and is superb to hold, The front seats are very supportive and extremely comfortable to use and it also have couple of adjustments so that u can be seated in a good position. The back seat is also comfortable and offers adequate support and BMW x1 also offers a big and hefty 505 liter boot which is useful for long trips.
ENGINE & PERFORMANCE:- BMW x1 is powered by two engine options. Petrol one is powered by a new BS-VI-compliant, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine that makes 192hp and 280Nm of peak torque and diesel engine is powered by 1995cc, 4 cyls, diesel which produces 190hp at 4000rpm with 400nm of peak torque. Both Engines are powered by same 8 speed automatic gearbox. Diesel engine is very responsive at higher revs and just begs you to shift, also at the same time is very refined and u will not notice that u r sitting in a diesel car which is great, Although below 3000rpm there is a bit less power but past that engine is rocking!!!
Petrol engine’s performance is also good but as compared to diesel it was a bit less responsive. This engine is not the taste of Enthusiasts as when u push the engine hard it doesn’t deliver the power u expected, Not that petrol engine is under-powered but power is not well distributed although engine is super silent under 3000 rpm its only when u push harder it becomes vocal.
BEST LUXURY SUV?:- Hearing this question i am assured that BMW x1 is really the perfect luxury SUV right now in the indian market u buy. Surely it’s petrol counterpart has some issues, But other than that there are lot of attributes which are in the favour of X1 which are sporty ride & handling, Great diesel engine, A car like driving positions and a lot of goodies explained above so if u r confused which luxury SUV to take home then take away BMW x1 it surely deserves your attention and as bmw x1 price is also very competetive.
