2016 BMW X1 Priced From $35,795
More interior space, more expensive.
Heading to dealerships this October, the 2016 BMW X1 starts at $35,795 including destination. That's an increase of $3,945 over the 2015 model's starting price, although that price disparity applies only to the base rear-drive 2015 X1; the 2016 model is only $1,845 more than an equivalent all-wheel-drive 2015 X1 xDrive28i.
That price increase comes as the X1 switches from its previous, rear-wheel-drive based chassis to a new, front-wheel-drive platform called UKL, a version of which is also used by the MINI Cooper. Compared to its predecessor, the 2016 BMW X1 is more spacious and offers more technology. In the U.S., the new crossover will offered only in one trim, the 2016 BMW X1 xDrive28i, which features a 2.0-liter turbo-four with 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. BMW estimates a 0-to-60-mph time of 6.3 seconds.
Standard features on all 2016 BMW X1 models include 18-inch wheels, power front seats, and a seven-speaker sound system. Options include heated front seats ($550) and a driver assistance package with parking assistant, parking sensors, and a rearview camera ($1,150). A $2,550 Technology package adds navigation, a head-up display, and enhanced USB and Bluetooth with smartphone integration. A panoramic moonroof, satellite radio, power-folding mirrors, lumbar support, and LED headlights with cornering lights are available in a $3,250 Premium package.
The X1 will offer a diverse color palette for 2016. Available colors include shades of white, gray, bronze, brown, olive, blue, and black. Inside, neutral colors -- black, beige, and brown -- fill the cabin.
