Interior (M Sport)

Anshuman & Eddy say:
• Everything is a step up; space, interiors & build quality too
• Interiors slightly more spacious than the outgoing X1 (do we have the front-wheel-drive layout to thank?)
• Quality is a big step up - hard plastics are gone
• Seats are electrically adjustable on both the driver and front seat passenger sides
• Automatic start/stop function, ECO PRO mode and brake energy regeneration are present
• Launch control & gear-shift paddles on all variants except the Expedition
• M Sport and xLine both feature a big panoramic sunroof and ambient lighting scheme
• Rear seat is better and more comfortable, however, the side support (towards the doors) is gone
• Boot space is now 505 litres. The rear seat can fold to increase boot space to 1550 litres
• Dedicated space for space saver under the boot flooring is a welcome addition
Features specific to the M Sport:
• Bigger 8.8" (22.3 cm) iDrive display
• Head-Up Display and BMW Navigation Plus
• M sports seats and M leather steering wheel
• Upholstery combinations in Dakota leather include Canberra Beige, Mocha with Black/Mocha, Oyster with Grey highlight and Black, Black with Black, Black with Blue Highlight.

Did anyone notice BMW has got rid of the cool joystick and is back to the old school gear lever! Wonder why?

How does the all new X1 compare to the X3, which itself is due for a face lift?

Is the rear bench space much less in comparison to X3.

Tech wise it seems to have everything that X3 has and some more too!

Looks a lot more grown up than the previous one and much better equipped too. Also looks more SUV now. The blue M sport looks lovely too.

Nice to see BMW waking up to the fact that people need the assurance of a spare wheel in the boot and not give up boot space after buying one.

That's a proper M steering wheel! Nice

This probably has a different transmission since it is front wheel drive. Maybe that is the reason for the differing gear lever.

This has a Aisin 8 speed and not the ZF, the engine is placed trasnversely to increase cabin space, apparently the cabin is 8 inches longer because of these changes.

The top 2 models, Xdrive 20d xLine and Xdrive20d M sport, have AWD system.
Only the sDrive expedition and sDrive20dxline don't have it.

At 40L Ex-show room (Delhi) price, the M sport is ridiculously expensive, bordering on X3 and 5 series (with discounts), territory!

Finally a proper challenger for the Q3

This new X1 looks sharp - love the blue shade and the alloys (on both the variants)! Interior looks a big step up too.

Pricing looks in line with the segment. My gut instinct says this will be a hit.

Love the estoril blue Msport X1. Combined with black/blue highlight interiors it is going to look really awesome. Great that BMW is giving the xdrive and a host of other features. Considering this has the M sport suspension I think ground clearance will be a little lower than the standard X1.
