Sunday, September 18th 2016. | BMW

One big problem that you might see in the previous BMW X1 is that it didn’t impress buyers and it didn’t create a huge hit in the market. Its previous styling cues was not quite great and that is the sign for BMW to learn something more  such as giving something different that makes it to be the center of attention. This German automaker is quite possible to pay their fault by presenting 2018 BMW X1. This compact SUV will be designed with many changes. Some revisions are added to make it more attractive than before. Therefore, they have a plan to give a complete redesign.

2018 BMW X1 Side


At a glance, you will see that the design is a bit similar to the bigger siblings, X3 and X5. It happens because this is the smaller version and this compact crossover will carry over the overall dimensions. To make it a bit different from the previous model, it will be prepared to get some borrowed lines from those bigger siblings. It will complete the demand on lower class segment. Some reports mentioned about the possibility for 2018 BMW X1 to get shortened body work. What is more is that the enlarged ground clearance which is about 40 mm to enhance its aerodynamic performance so that the car can deal with any terrains and bumps.

Although the bodywork will be shortened, it doesn’t give any bad impact for the cabin design. 2018 BMW X1 will give ample leg and head room after revisiting the interior. The cabin must get complete redesign because there are many new compact crossovers in the future market. Its main rivals are Mercedes GLA and Audi Q3 which is the luxury car. It means that BMW should provide it with luxury features if they want to be the winner in that competition.


To support its performance, 2018 BMW X1 will offer you four engine designs. One is petrol and the remaining three options are diesels. BMW will have a big concern on the mileage so that this new crossover provides interesting fuel economy that should be more than 40 mpg. The emission will be cut to meet the demand of U.S. market. For its acceleration, the car can reach from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds. The car will be released as front-wheel drive and it is the standard. Buyers can pick the optional xDrive four-wheel drive. They also work for six-speed auto transmission but the displacement for the engine is still a big mystery to reveal.

Release Date and Price

It is important for BMW to develop the car and start the premiere some time in 2017 as 2018 BMW X1. We predict that the price can be about $50,000.
