BMW SUVs rightly praise that they closely reflected the working characteristics of their sedan in the X1 model.
X1 appeared on sale in Europe since 2009, but the company has been waiting for this year to start producing updated small SUVs X1. We will get two engines: 28i 2.0 liter four-cylid engine with twin-turbo, connected by an automatic gearbox with eight speeds and 35i, with a more powerful twin-turbo, 3.0 liter engine and an automatic six -speed gearbox. With 28i engines, either full or rear -wheel drive is proposed, while the four -wheel drive supplies with more powerful engines 35i.
The suspension and a hodovka are taken from both the previous X1 and from the sedan 5 of the series – good news for those who prefer the energetic nature of controllability in cars with small bodies. Thanks to the components from the sedan, the control is very stable, the brakes are responsive and linear and can easily stop the car from any speed.
Those who are looking for more agility and power will have to choose an all -wheel drive model and install a system of an additional sports package, which includes control over the working characteristics. It regulates the distribution of torque between the front and rear wheels and adds power to the hinged wheel to help the driver overcome turns at high speeds. But it should be remembered that in which case, not every auto -evacuator will take up the car with all -wheel drive. After all, the evacuation of cars with all -wheel drive is not simple.
The new BMW X1 will spend less than fuel, thanks to the function of stop start and “ECO” mode.
The rear -wheel drive model will accelerate 6.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h (6.3 seconds for all -wheel drive). This SUV has quite enough power to overcome difficult country roads and drive high speeds along the routes, but in the eighth gear there appears a rumble characteristic of diesel engines, which can be annoying for some.
Although heavier, BMW X1 with an engine 35i, has a huge power for such a small vehicle. From 0 to 100 km per hour, this engine is able to disperse the car in just 5.3 seconds!
Just as with his older brothers X3 and X5, there is nothing too dramatic in external design.
