BMW X1 generations

With the SUV and crossover segments in high demand, BMW realised that it needed to add more of this type of vehicle to the lineup, which is why the X1 was introduced in 2009. Though it's the smallest of BMW's SUV range, it still offers a decent amount of space for passengers and luggage, and it benefits from many luxurious touches and advanced features.

Third Generation (2022 to 2022)

BMW designed the X1 to be its smallest and most affordable crossover, so it didn't require many alterations to remain competitive and popular in the compact luxury SUV segment. Yet the third-generation model did offer some upgrades, such as new swept-back headlights similar to those found on the 3 Series. Also, the size of the front grille was reduced slightly.

Inside the cabin, the new X1 received a curved display, placing the relevant data directly in front of the driver, while an updated infotainment centre was installed in the centre stack. Powertrain options were also revised, giving customers more options.

Second Generation (2015 to 2022)

The main change with the second generation X1 was the way that the engine was mounted. Instead of being mounted longitudinally, it was switched to transversely, which allowed a shorter front-end overhang and nose. The cabin was also moved forward slightly, allowing for wider doors and making it easier to get in and out. Changes to the front made the X1 resemble its larger sibling, the X3.

A 2018 refresh brought a bolder bumper design with larger air intakes. The size of the grille was also increased, and brand-new LED headlights were added. New materials were used in the cabin to offer a more comfortable experience.

First Generation (2009 to 2015)

When the X1 was first released, it was based on the same platform as the 3 Series, but it looked similar to the X3. However, the lighting features were the same as those placed in the 7 Series when it was released. With the advanced safety technology and premium materials included, the new X1 was ahead of its time.

By 2014, the X1 was ready for a refresh to enhance its look. Sportier-looking headlights were added, and the grille design was changed. A restyled lower bumper was added. BMW also chose to install indicators into the mirror caps on the door for added visibility.
