New BMW X1 Quotes

Performance

The X1 is available with four different 2.0-litre diesel engines and one 2.0-litre petrol, the 2.0-litre diesel xDrive25d 215bhp output engine is an expectedly great performer aided by a standard six-speed manual gearbox. The X1 at its best is capable of a 0-60mph run in 8.8 seconds and has a top speed of 127mph, this outshines both of its Ford Kuga and VW Tiguan rivals which will do 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds, each and have disappointing top speeds of 113mph and 116mph respectively. Even at its top speed, the X1 handles well as the steering is precise and offers natural feedback. Book to test drive the model now at askaprice.com.

Running Costs

Usually with such strong performance, the running costs would be unfortunately high, but as the X1 is a small SUV crossover, this isn’t a problem. The sDrive18d diesel model for example will return 57.6mpg and produce low CO2 emissions of 128g/km. The flagship in terms of economy is the sDrive 20d EfficientDynamics engine, which will average a return of 62.8mpg with CO2 emissions of 119g/km, making it road tax exempt for its first year. Comparatively the Ford Kuga has 210g/km of CO2 emissions, whereas the VW Tiguan comes in at 216g/km. Although they are both at least £2,000 cheaper than the X1’s purchase price at £24,200, their running costs are much higher, making them altogether a more expensive purchase.

Equipment

There are a variety of trim levels available with the X1 and the SE trim remains the centre choice of the range as its features include, 17" alloy wheels, climate and cruise control, rear parking sensors, CD stereo with MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity. Upgrading to the Sport level trim will see added features of roof rails, bumper trims, steering wheel mounted stereo controls and switchable ambient lighting. The top of the range M Sport trim will add 18" alloy wheel, Nevada leather upholstery and brushed aluminium trim, the full specifications of this and all the trims available across the X1 model range are in our brochure.
