ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

  • The X1 will offer four- and six-cylinder power
  • Base-level four-cylinder models could reach 33 mpg in the city
  • Two sporty new trim levels will also join the model's lineup

BMW recently released several new details about its upcoming X1 compact SUV, which is scheduled to debut stateside this fall. The automaker announced trim levels, equipment and projected fuel economy for the SUV just one month after showing it for the first time in North America at this year's New York International Auto Show.

According to BMW, the base-level, rear-wheel drive X1 will be titled the sDrive28i, while the same model equipped with all-wheel drive will be dubbed the xDrive28i. Both feature a 240-horsepower twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, while the top-of-the-line X1 xDrive35i will offer standard all-wheel drive and a 300-horsepower twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine. All models offer standard automatic transmissions, though four-cylinder versions boast an 8-speed compared to the 6-speed unit included in the xDrive35i.

Of course, the 8-speed automatic coupled with the new turbocharged four-cylinder engine helps the X1 score impressive fuel economy ratings. According to the automaker, the X1 sDrive28i will achieve 24 miles per gallon in city driving and a whopping 33 mpg in the city, while the all-wheel drive model should reach 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. BMW says even the range-topping xDrive35i, which is expected to scramble to 60 miles per hour from a standing stop in just 5.3 seconds, should be capable of 18 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway.

In addition to the usual trim levels, BMW will also offer two more versions of the X1. One, dubbed the xLine, boasts sporty front and rear undertrays, matte-painted air intake grilles and unique 18-inch alloy wheels in addition to a leather-wrapped steering wheel and copper-colored interior trim. The other new variant, named SportLine, includes a host of performance-oriented appearance upgrades ranging from red stitching and aluminum interior accents to black chrome tailpipes and a leather-trimmed gearshift lever.

BMW also announced it will offer several option packages on the X1 that range from the performance-oriented M Sport Package to the snow belt-friendly Cold Weather Package and the luxurious Premium Package.

Expected to arrive in early fall, the X1 sDrive28i will be priced from $31,545 including destination, while the all-wheel drive xDrive28i will offer a $33,245 base price with shipping. The range-topping X1 xDrive35i will carry a hefty premium over its stable mates, starting from $39,345 including destination.

What it means to you: BMW's smallest-ever SUV will be reaching dealerships before you know it.
