Safety First for BMX1

The second-generation X1 crossover moves from the rear-drive 3 Series sedan platform to a front-drive layout shared with the Mini Cooper hatchback. This packaging brings more cargo and cabin room, particularly for rear-seat passengers.

Only one powertrain will be available at launch: a 2.0-liter, 228-hp four-cylinder turbo, mated to an eight-speed automatic. All-wheel-drive models will arrive first, with front-drive versions joining by the end of the year.

Available safety systems include lane-departure and forward-collision warnings. Base models get a 6.5-inch control display screen, and an 8.8-inch screen is optional.
