2024 BMW X1 Changes
The 2024 BMW X1 is fresh from its 2023 debut but still gains several anticipated updates such as an M-tuned performance model and an upgraded infotainment system. The similar but more style-oriented BMW X2 is also new for the 2024 model year.
Choosing Your 2024 BMW X1
The 2024 BMW X1 is offered in xDrive28i and M35i xDrive and prices start at $41,495 and $50,895, respectively.
2024 BMW X1 Engine Options
The BMW X1 xDrive28i is unchanged from last year and is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 241 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The new-for-2024 BMW X1 M35i xDrive is powered by a strengthened 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 313 horsepower and the same peak torque value. Both engines are mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard.
2024 BMW X1 Fuel Economy
The xDrive28i returns fuel economy ratings of 25 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 28 combined. The M35i xDrive lessens those ratings to 23, 31, and 26, respectively. Premium fuel is recommended and the EPA estimates that the X1 models will cost about $2,500 to fuel annually.
2024 BMW X1 Dimensions & Cargo Capacity
The cargo area measures 25.7 cubic feet of space and 57.2 cubic feet with the seats folded. These are expectedly favorable measurements to the 21.6 and 50.1-cubic foot respective ratings of the swoopier X2.
2024 BMW X1 Safety
The BMW X1 is equipped with active safety features such as automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, blind-spot detection with clear exit assist and rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and parking sensors.
The next level of technology is available through the Driving Assistance Professional Package ($1,700) which adds full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane centering, evasive steering assist, and front cross-traffic alert. This package requires the $3,300 Technology Package that also brings a surround-view camera with a 3D virtual view, and Parking Assist Plus, among other features.
2024 BMW X1 Technology
The 2024 X1 adopts BMW’s latest infotainment system to go along with its 10.7-inch curved touch screen, natural speech recognition, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Siri, SiriusXM with 360L, Bluetooth, and over-the-air-update capabilities. Charging duties are handled by four USB-C and two 12-volt power outlets while a wireless charging pad is an option as is the Harman Kardon sound system with 12 speakers (with two under the front seats).

The X1’s base trim is equipped with LED headlights and tail lights, satin chrome roof rails, bi-color 18-inch wheels, flush door handles, synthetic leather seats, and a dual-zone climate control system.
There are several significant option packages. The Convenience Package ($1,950) adds a panoramic sunroof, proximity entry, a Digital Key, and automatically dimming interior and exterior mirrors, Technology Package ($3,300), which can be selected instead, to gain a head-up display, the additional safety technology, and augmented reality for the navigation system, and Premium Package ($4,100) that adds the premium sound system and an interior camera for remote monitoring. Heated front seats and steering wheel require $550.
In terms of performance looks and performance hardware, the M Sport Package ($2,000) brings a unique look and feel with 18-inch wheels, gloss black window, exterior trim, and roof rails, body-color painted fender trim and rocker garnishes, a deeper front bumper for improved cooling performance, a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser, sport seats with deeper bolstering, a unique aluminum trim pattern, and an M Sport steering wheel with paddle shifters.
In terms of hardware, the M Sport package installs a sport adaptive M suspension, a 0.6-inch lower ride height, and a sport-tuned steering system. M Sport brakes are a $650 option and require larger wheels and add blue-painted calipers.
2024 BMW X1 M35i xDrive - MSRP From $50,895Build & Price >
The M35i xDrive adds to the xDrive28i with 19-inch wheels, the exterior styling and hardware of the M Sport Package, upgraded LED headlights, and the premium sound system, while offering the Driving Assistance Professional Package and the Premium Package that is now priced at $2,800.
BMW’s lightweight and high-performance brake system is available for $700 although it requires larger 20-inch wheels with performance tires.
The X1 M35 xDrive is certainly tempting for its performance, however, the X1 is best served in its most practical sense which lands us on the xDrive28i and the Convenience Package.
