The 2023 BMW X1 and iX1

BMW has been busy, and just a few weeks ago, the 2023 third-generation BMW X1, the X1 30e, and the completely new iX1, an all-electric SUV, made a splash with their hot web debut. While the iX1 is only available in Europe at the moment, it will likely hit US roads later in 2023.

A Quick Look at the X1 x Drive 28i

At the moment, the xDrive 28i is the only model you can get in the United States. It is a small subcompact that was designed to compete against the likes of Volvo XC40, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, and Lexus UX. This, though, is a totally redesigned model that has adopted a more stable exterior, extra refinements in the interior, and an updated powertrain. The hottest new features include:

  • Modified exterior design
  • Slightly wider and taller body with an elongated wheelbase
  • All-wheel drive as standard
  • 7-speed dual-clutch transmission
  • Revised interior design with the new BMW Curved Display
  • Addition of the Driving Assistant Professional

Maybe the most interesting feature of this one is the fact that it’s offered in at least a dozen exterior colors. While most – Cape York Green, Space Silver, and Blue Bay Lagoon – have been around for decades, there are two brand new colors to consider – Frozen Pure Grey and Utah Orange. A metallic finish is also available. 

It runs on a 4-cylinder 2-liter engine that generates 204 hp. With its 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the x1 xDrive can go from 0-60 mph in just 6.2 seconds. Many options have now become standard in this model including the Curved Display which comprises the central infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster that has been combined into one large unit. The infotainment system also has an enhanced voice-activated personal assistant. Both android auto and Apple Carplay are standard.

The 2023 BMW X1 will cost around $39,595.

The X1 30e and the iX1

Even though the X1, the X1 30e, and iX1 have distinct powertrains, all the models are similar with only a few minor subtle differences. The iX1 is a fully electric SUV that has a range of 438 kilometers whereas the X1 is a 30e plug-in hybrid with a range of 89 kilometers. 

The BMW X1 x Drive 30e has a 3-cylinder turbocharged gas engine and an electric motor, which can deliver a combined hp of 326 HP. When it arrives in the US, it will only be available in one trim. 

The iX1 offers zero emissions, and it looks just slightly different from the X1. It has a modified front end, thanks to the fact that it’s an EV. You might notice blue accents across the course of the car, but on the whole, it matches the overall design of the X1.

“Top Safety Pick” from IIHS: 2016 BMW X1 Crossover- Braman BMW

BMW X! Crossover | Braman BMW Jupiter

If you’ve been thinking about heading over to Braman BMW and asking them about the perfect vehicle to drive off the lot, now is the perfect time. Especially if one of your top priorities is safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has recently chosen the 2016 BMW X1 Crossover as a Top Safety Pick.

This is the IIHS’s highest rating. It shows that for all five of the “crashworthiness” tests to which the BMW X1 was subjected, it passed with a “good” score. The rating of “good” is also the top rating available for passing a crashworthiness test. Additionally, the X1 received the highest marks possible for its front crash prevention system. The tests include the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint safety. The tests are rigorous and exhaustive; BMW engineers worked as meticulously as ever to ensure the X1 earned this top rating for valued customers.

BMW’s front crash prevention system works to help reduce speeds so the impact is not as severe as it would otherwise be. For example, if the vehicle is moving at 25 mph, the system reduces that speed by 7 mph. It also has a forward collision warning component. All of these components work together to provide the X1 with an advanced rating from the IIHS.

While BMW is always easy on the eyes, the automaker emphasizes smart design, so you can feel secure inside each and every one of their cars. You are in good hands when you drive an X1 from Braman.
