Later this year, the German luxury carmaker is also planning to go with the new revamped BMW 7 Series after this. This upgrade launch is clearly an attempt by BMW to connect with Indian consumers, as the car major is facing a tough fight with Audi for a lion’s share in the Indian Market.

At first go, The D+ segment luxury sedan’s outer body seems quite similar to the earlier version as the changes are subtle but effective and do not immediately stand out till you hold the steering wheel. In fact the SUV has been redesigned with a heavier front and rear bumper, round fog lamps, silver grille, new and more powerful headlamps, reshaped side view mirror. The sedan has already undergone through slight changes in the lower part so that its body get improved aerodynamically. Thus, overall the changes give the sedan a powerful yet attractive look.

Industry experts point out that the engine of the new BMW X1 is more powerful than its predecessor. The luxury sedan receives its thrust from the BMW’s 2-litre turbo diesel trim that provides 181hp and 380Nm torque, up from 350 Nm offered by the earlier version. The transmission of the new X1 comes with the ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox, as compared to the 6-speed gearbox in the previous version. All this upgrades provide greater thrust and as a result, the new X1 provides better acceleration. The price of the new X1 starts at Rs. 27.9 lakh, this is roughly Rs. 2 lakh higher than the earlier version. The series comes in three variants, the entry level Base Line, xLine, and Sportline.
