BMW X1: Totally X-Rated

Published on July 2nd, 2009

Well this is wonderful news when we (I mean one of us) woke up this morning. Sure, it rains where I come from but it did bring some smiles when I read what BMW has just officially revealed- the new BMW X1.

BMW claims that the X1 guarantees a new driving experience with modern drivetrain technology and, depending on the model variant, the driver can benefit from both petrol and diesel engines.

The X1 comes with BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive as well BMW EfficientDynamics features including Brake Energy Regeneration, Auto Start Stop and gearshift point indicator, all of which depends on the variants.

Regarding the handling issues, the X1 is sporting cutting-edge suspension technology, which comprise of a double-joint thrust bar or, respectively, an aluminum double-joint tiebar axle at the front and a five-arm rear axle in lightweight steel, high precision power steering, high performance braking system, Dynamic Stability Control and Dynamic Traction Control.

Optional is the Performance Control, which acts on the brakes, for particularly dynamic driving behavior.

We sure would like to get our hands on one to test all these safety features.

Now, the X1’s body is a specially designed body structure from the outset and focuses more on the occupant’s safety. Rear seat belts all round, frontal and side airbags as head as head airbags at the side, adaptive brake lights and daytime driving lights (we’re seeing a trend now with this) are standard for the X1.

Buyers can opt for the Xenon headlights, adaptive headlights as well as the High-Beam Assistant.

The X1 is equipped with latest generation of BMW iDrive including a controller, direct selection buttons on the centre console, a control display that is integrated in the instrument panel and ‘favorite’ buttons beneath the control panel for the air conditioning.
