The popular ‘M Sport’ variant of the all-new BMW X1 sports activity vehicle (SAV) has been introduced in India in a petrol version as well - BMW X1 sDrive18i M Sport. Locally produced at BMW Group Plant Chennai, the car is available for bookings at BMW dealership network and through Shop.bmw.in. Deliveries will commence from June 2023.
The all-new BMW X1 sDrive18i M Sport (petrol) is priced at Rs 48,90,000 ex showroom.
BMW X1 M Sport is available in Alpine White non-metallic paint and Space Silver, Black Sapphire, Storm Bay and M Portimao Blue metallic paintworks. The choice of upholstery includes Sensatec Perforated Mocha and Sensatec Perforated Oyster.
The M Sport variant has a host of attractive features, many of which are either best-in-class or a segment-first. Among the highlights are - Adaptive LED Headlights with High Beam Assistant, BMW Live Cockpit Plus with BMW Curved Display, My BMW App with Remote Functions, Comfort Access with Digital Key Plus, Parking Assistant with Reversing Assistant, Active Seats, Harmon Kardon Hi-Fi system and a lot more.
With its robust appearance and functional versatility, the all-new BMW X1 embodies both the freedom in day-to-day city driving as well as the fun of sheer driving pleasure. The interior’s progressive design and sophisticated ambience and the much broader selection of standard equipment compared to the outgoing model, serve to underline its deeply embedded premium character.
The all-new BMW X1 has bigger proportions than the predecessor, looking more powerful and expressive. The monolithic design, surface treatment, lines and classy exterior display its SAV identity more clearly than ever. The upright front end has a much greater presence with slim LED headlights and a large, almost square BMW kidney grille. Segment best Adaptive LED headlights with high beam assistant and rear LED taillights are available as standard. Almost square wheel arch contours and a long roofline are the distinguishing features of the dynamically stretched silhouette. The flat roof rails serve as a striking design element and can be used as multifunction mounts. When viewed from rear, the slim tailgate window, horizontal lines and 3D taillights produce the wide, typical ‘X’ SAV stance.
The all-new BMW X1 sDrive18i M Sport attracts with its dynamic exterior elements that set the model apart. The front and rear bumper panels have an M-specific design and come in vehicle colour with inserts in black high-gloss. Aluminium inserts with 'M' inscription on the entry sills evoke the M legacy as one enters the car. The model sports 18-inch lmight-alloy wheels in double-spoke style.
The interior takes a big leap forward, now featuring an even higher level of premiumness and digitalisation. The first element to catch attention is the new digital BMW Curved Display which is harmoniously unified into the cockpit area. The typical BMW driver-orientation, clear reduced design along with an interplay of eye-catching graphics, modern colours and futuristic textures create an immersive visual appearance. The new Instrument Panel Luxury in Sensatec elevates the interior’s aesthetics. Decorative strips including ambient lighting in instrument panel and front doors as well as accent trim strips in Pearl Chrome enhance the premium character of the cabin. The seemingly floating armrest with storage also ergonomically integrates the control cluster. Harman Kardon Surround Sound Hi-Fi loudspeaker system with 12 speakers and digital amplifier offers magnificent sound quality, even at low volumes.
Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “The all-new BMW X1 has really caught the imagination of customers who were waiting for a luxury SAV that’s an all-rounder in the true sense. In overwhelming demand since its launch three months ago, X1 has upheld its dominating position within the segment thanks to its commanding presence, highly efficient and dynamic performance and class-leading tech features. Our ‘M Sport’ style variant always receives special attention due to its dynamic M design and luxurious interiors inspired by high-performance motorsport genes. Looking at the high customer interest, we are glad to introduce the M Sport variant in petrol as well - BMW X1 sDrive18i M Sport. With this, we add more thrill to the range and a new dimension of joy.”
