China’s demand for more spacious automobiles has convinced BMW to add a few centimeters to its entry level SUV. Even so, the X1 LWB still remains the smallest crossover in the Bavarian car maker’s line-up.
In China, the X1 Long will offer three power options, including the “entry level” 3-pot 136 HP sDrive18Li, the four-cylinder 192 HP sDrive20Li/xDrive20Li, and inline four, 231 HP xDrive25Li; all turbocharged, of course. Moreover, the sDrive18Li is coupled as standard to a six-speed Steptronic transmission, while the remaining models come equipped with an eight-speed.
Two trim levels will be available on the long-wheelbase variant of the X1, the xLine and the Sport Line, both available with a wide array of standard and optional, such as parking assist and memory functions, rear Park Distance Control, keyless start, electrically adjustable driver’s and front passenger’s seats with memory function, Dynamic Damper Control, LED headlights, Driving Assistant package, and a Harman Kardon surround sound system.
