Picture update: BMW X1 xDrive18d LCI (2013 / E84)

BMW's smallest member of the SUV family is the BMW X1, which is a "compact luxury crossover SUV". Introduced in 2009, production first started at the Leipzig plant in October 2009 and later expanded to plants in Chennai (India), Shenyang (China), and Kaliningrad (Russia). BMW does not produce complete X1's in Chennai and Kaliningrad but rather assembles knock-down kits (CDK's).

The BMW X1 shares its platform with the old BMW 3-series Touring (E91) and the BMW X3, which is most notable in the interior, that is reminiscent of the Bangle-interior in the previous generation 1- and 3-series, for example the location of the cruise control on a seperate handle instead of the steering wheel. 

In 2012 BMW introduced the facelift - Life Cycle Improvement (LCI) - for the X1. Only minor changes have been made to the exterior, for example the headlights got blue angel eyes and an "LED-eyebrow" instead of the old yellow angel eyes, and the "Sport Line" and "xLine" packages have been made available. More changes have been made by introducing new engines and several smaller technological improvements. 

This blog features a BMW X1 xDrive18d LCI with the "Sport Line" package, with a complete list of all the options in this particular car and many pictures.

Some pro's and con's on the BMW X1 xDrive18d LCI:

  • Sport Line package is good value for money, apart from the options it also has many nice design features
  • Excellent sport seats
  • Adequate amount of space inside of the car, compared to other "compact" cars like the 1-series
  • Bluetooth connection for both the phone and MP-3 function works perfectly

  • Relatively high fuel consumption
  • Steep price --> a comparable 3-series Touring has more to offer
  • Old technology of the previous generation
  • Location of the USB-connection in the center console instead of armrest, makes the car look untidy if the phone flies around the center console
  • Cupholder is in the way of the passenger, although it can be detached
