BMW X1 | The Synergy Between Beauty And Tech

One word for the All-new third-generation BMW X1: Evolved!!


Mileage, Comfort, Sporty Design, Sports Boost Mode


Insulation, Initial Punch


If you have seen the previous gen X1, you can point out the design change in the new X1. A positive change is giving it a very sophisticated and sporty look. The biggest eyecatcher is the increasingly satinated aluminium kidney grills. This is bigger than the last one and has edgier curves. It portrays the brand identity reasonably well. 

The inverted L-shaped adaptive LED headlamps are standard in both variants, with more contoured edges having daytime driving and position lights with high beam assistance. The sculpted front bumper panel and the chiselled hood give a refined definition to the car. With the M Sports package, you have the front and rear bumper panelling in the vehicle colour. The contoured line flows right from the front to the rear. You get 18-inch alloy wheels with a double-spoke style blending in seamlessly. 

We have the M sport badging on the side. The roofline is sloped with roof rails in a high gloss shadow line. The car's rear has undergone a complete makeover design-wise, and I prefer the current design. The rear LED tail lights, too, come as standard. Overall the car size has been increased by a few inches. And I'm kind of digging the design.
