Woodcliff Lake, NJ –
May 28, 2019…Today, BMW announces the updated
2020 X1 Sports Activity Vehicle. Since its introduction in 2015,
the X1 has gone on to become BMW’s best-selling X vehicle
worldwide. In the U.S., the X1 is the third most popular X model,
behind the X3 and X5.
The updated X1, available in front-wheel drive X1 sDr28i and
all-wheel drive X1 xDr28i versions offers one of the roomiest
cabins in its class combined with the technology, performance,
comfort and agility attributes which make up the heart of all the
models in BMW’s Sports Activity Vehicle line.
New exterior features
The latest version of the BMW X1 SAV receives more modern,
updated exterior styling to reflect the design details found in
its newer, larger siblings, such as the X3, X5 and X7. New,
optional, LED headlights with hexagonal iconography are
complemented by new LED fog lights. The BMW kidney grills feature
a new, sculptured design with larger openings. Changes to the
front and rear bumper design are highlighted by sharper lines and
larger openings with integrated LED fog lights and give the 2020
BMW X1 its more modern look.
Towards the rear of the vehicle, new tinted LED taillights with
L-shaped light bars accentuate the wider appearance of the
exterior. The tailpipes have grown by 20mm, now 90mm in diameter.
The M Sport Package features a new, redesigned and more
aggressive aerodynamics package including a new front bumper, side
skirts, wheel arch trim, and rear diffuser in body color.
New interior features
When opening the front door, the driver is greeted by a new
two-tone LED “X1” welcome projection. Inside the cabin, the driver
and passengers are able to interface with the 2020 BMW X1 via the
standard 8.8 inch central control display screen with iDrive 6,
Navigation and Apple CarPlay Compatibility.
The instrument panel and floor mats features new, decorative
contrast stitching while choosing the optional Dakota leather
interior adds color-matched lower dashboard and door handles surfaces.
A new electronic gear selector switch connects to an updated
version of the 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission.
Three new metallic colors have been added to the options list:
Storm Bay metallic, Jucaro Beige and Misano Blue metallic. Estoril
Blue has been removed.
Standard, non-metallic carryover colors include Alpine White and
Jet Black. Carryover optional metallic paints include Black
Sapphire Metallic, Glacier Silver Metallic, Mineral White
Metallic, Mineral Grey Metallic, 3 Sparkling Brown Metallic, Dark
Olive Metallic, Mediterranean Blue Metallic and Sunset Orange Metallic.
Power and performance
The 2020 BMW X1 is powered by the 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged
engine (SULEV rated) from BMW’s family of modular engines. Power
output is 228 hp @ 5,000 – 6,000 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque @
1,450 – 4,500 rpm. Full torque is available in the low and
mid-range, where the majority of daily driving takes place,
allowing for quick and immediate acceleration when needed.
Acceleration from 0 – 60 mph is accomplished in 6.3 seconds for
the all-wheel drive X1 xDrive28i and 6.6 seconds for the X1 sDrive28i.
The 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission in the 2020 BMW X1
features revised gear ratios for improved performance and offers
fast and almost imperceptible shifts, improving comfort for the
driver and passengers. A Sport Automatic transmission and steering
wheel mounted shift paddles are included when the optional M Sport
Package is selected.
The BMW xDrive system, available on the X1 xDrive28i, works with
the DSC Dynamic Stability Control system to transfer power to the
rear wheels when it is needed, to reduce understeer in turns,
improve traction when going uphill, on slippery surfaces and
during more spirited driving.

New design 18 inch Y-spoke bi-color and black wheels replace the
previous Y-spoke wheel design. A new 19 inch M Double-spoke wheel
replaces an outgoing 19 inch Y-spoke wheel design.
