Model Preview

The second-generation BMW X1 hit showrooms in 2016, and in a fast-changing segment, BMW sees it fit to release an updated 2020 X1. Of course, this won’t be a full redesign, but it will boast enough visual updates to set it apart from the current X1.

The base design of the 2020 BMW X1 will remain the same, but it will receive a few nips and tucks to keep it fresh in the quick-shifting subcompact crossover space. Up front, the 2020 X1 will boast new, optional LED headlights with hexagonal designs, new LED fog lights, and a revised grille with larger openings. The bumpers will gain sharper lines and larger openings, and the rear will get new tinted LED taillights with L-shaped light bars and 0.8-inch larger tailpipes.

Buyers who fancy the M Sport package will also see a few changes, as it will include a new front bumper, side skirts, wheel-arch trim, and rear diffuser.

Rounding out the exterior changes will be three new metallic colors — Storm Bay metallic, Jucaro Beige, and Misano Blue — and new 18- and 19-inch wheels. BMW will also discontinue the Estoril Blue color option in the 2020 X1.

The changes inside the 2020 BMW X1 will be clear from the moment you open the door and a new two-tone “X1” LED projection greets you. From there, the 2020 BMW X1 will gain a standard 8.8-inch central display screen with iDrive 6, navigation, and Apple CarPlay. Completing the interior updates will be a new electronic gear selector.

The 2020 BMW X1 will continue with its sole engine option: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. What will change under its hood will be a new eight-speed automatic transmission with revised gears and quicker shifts. This will result in a 6.3-second 0-to-60 time in the all-wheel-drive X1 xDrive28i and a 6.6-second sprint in the front-driven sDrive28i.

Pricing & Release Date

BMW expects to kick off the 2020 X1’s production in July 2019 with an anticipated on-sale date of late-2019.

Pricing remains unconfirmed, but we don’t expect a big price hike relative to the current X1, which ranges from $35,945 to $37,945 (destination fees included).

The 2020 BMW X1 will compete with the Audi Q3, Lexus UX, and the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
