History of BMW X1 sDrive 18i M-Sport
The BMW X1 is a range of subcompact luxury crossover SUVs and is the second and current generation. It was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015 and later at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
It was based on the modular UKL2 front-wheel-drive platform shared by BMW and Mini. All models of the X1 are now front-wheel drive and marketed as sDrive, unlike the previous generation which had rear-wheel drive as standard and an all-wheel-drive or xDrive variant as an option.
The X1 has a 90 mm shorter wheelbase, is 23 mm wider and 67 mm taller than its predecessor, resulting in more headroom and shoulder room due to the new platform. For the Chinese market, a long-wheelbase model was introduced at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show, featuring a 110 mm longer wheelbase.
In 2018, the BMW X1 became the brand’s best-selling model worldwide and received a facelift in May the following year. On BMW’s official website, it was unveiled with a dominant front bumper with larger air intakes, new LED headlights and taillights, wheels and a larger kidney grille.
The BMW X1 is a combination of style and technology and offers a wide range of variants. It includes three versions that focus exclusively on driving comfort, such as Sport Line, xLine and M-Sport.
Since its introduction, the BMW X1 has been available in the United States, China and some other Asian markets such as Singapore and Malaysia.
