The BMW X1


Driving Dynamics & Efficiency of the BMW X1.

The BMW X1 is in its element everywhere, inspiring with its precise handling, whether on-road or off-road. This is made possible by a range of perfectly coordinated components. The basis for this comes from the near-optimum weight distribution of 57:43 (front/rear) on the two axles. The optional intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive delivers the power of the BMW X1 precisely to the wheel where it is needed – regardless of the road surface. The suspension designed for maximum dynamics provides you with precise feedback at all times. At the same time, the BMW X1 reduces fuel consumption and emissions thanks to comprehensive BMW EfficientDynamics measures. And, as a result, you notice the sheer driving pleasure with every metre.


The combination of economical BMW TwinPower Turbo engines, intelligent lightweight construction and sophisticated aerodynamics form the basis in the BMW X1 for enhanced driving pleasure with reduced fuel consumption. Rounding off this approach are BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as the standard-feature energy management with Automatic Start/Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration. The 8-speed Steptronic transmission help to further increase efficiency and dynamics in the BMW X1.


The ECO PRO Mode helps drivers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, depending on their driving style – according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study.


The coasting function decouples the drive train from the engine and the vehicle rolls without the transmission. The car "coasts" when the driver takes the foot from the gas between 50 and 160 km/h and does not apply the brakes. In combination with Active Cruise Control, the vehicle also accelerates back to the desired speed more efficiently after braking when in ECO PRO Mode.


The 8-speed Steptronic transmission ensures smoother gear shifts and greater driving comfort, thanks to fast engine speed transitions and short shift times. It unites outstanding comfort with impressive dynamics and increased fuel efficiency.

8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission

The automatic 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission adapts to suit individual driving styles. It ranges from comfortable cruising to very dynamic handling. In SPORT mode, the gear shifts are configured for maximum performance. Gears can be changed manually by using the gear lever or the gearshift paddles on the Sport leather 


The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, always offering outstanding traction. xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) ensure that the BMW remains perfectly stable. Controlled via the DSC sensor system, xDrive quickly distributes drive power between the axles in order to prevent oversteer or understeer, thereby ensuring outstanding directional stability. BMW xDrive combines all the advantages of an all-wheel drive system – traction, directional stability and driving safety – with classic BMW agility for even more driving pleasure.
