BMW’s smallest offering in the SUV segment, the X1 has seen a mid-life facelift and already gone on sale internationally last year. This year, the German luxury automaker is set to launch the X1 facelift SUV in India. The BMW X1 launch is scheduled for March 5, 2020.

Spy shots of the BMW X1 facelift have emerged online recently, suggesting that the India-spec X1 SUV will be identical to the global-spec model in terms of look. Over the earlier version, the X1 facelift sports a host of changes. The BMW’s signature kidney grille is larger while the bumpers and alloy wheels are restyled for a new look.
The headlamps, albeit standing in the same place, also get double-barrel LED treatments as seen in the newer BMW cars. The top-spec X1 M Sport trims even come with aggressive chin design, additional colour options and larger disc brakes.
The updated BMW X1 gets a revised cabin as well. But changes are limited to the quality of materials and new upholstery. The cabin layout seems to be similar. The equipment package is likely to be carried forward, save for some manor additions like a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen and a new panoramic sunroof for the range-topping variants.
No doubts, 2020 BMW X1 will be compliant to the BSVI emission norms. It will continue to use the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines but in BS6 guises. In the BS4 form, the X1’s petrol engine can produce 192 HP of max power and 280 Nm of torque while the diesel mill makes 190 HP/ 400 Nm of torque.
Both the engines will channelise the power to the front wheels through with an 8-speed automatic torque converter but the diesel engine also comes in a choice of an all-wheel-drive system.
Currently, the BMW X1 is priced from Rs 35.2 – 45.7 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Expect the BMW X1 facelift to sit in the price bracket of Rs 39 – 46 Lakh (estimated, ex-showroom). Now that the BMW X1 itself has been more than a joy to drive, there’s a lot more to look forward to in the new X1 in 2020. The SUV will take on the likes of new Volvo XC40, upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q3.
