Date: 29 May 2019   |   Author: Sean Keywood

BMW has unveiled a facelifted version of its X1 SUV, and announced that a plug-in hybrid version will join the range next year. 

Exterior styling changes with the updated X1 include a larger grille, new front bumper, and revised front and rear LED lights. 

Inside there's an updated sat-nav system with either a standard 8.8in or optional 10.25in touchscreen. 

An optional head-up display is also available, as are new interior upholstery schemes.

A sliding rear bench seat is optional, and an electric tailgate is standard.

Launch engine options are a 140hp petrol, a 192hp petrol, a 150hp diesel and a 190hp diesel.

The petrols come with front-wheel drive, the 150hp diesel with front or four-wheel drive, and the 190hp diesel with four-wheel drive only. 

Depending on the engine chosen, available gearboxes include a six-speed manual, a seven-speed automatic and an eight-speed automatic.

Fuel economy figures are: 37.7mpg-56.5mpg for the 140hp petrol; 38.7mpg-51.4mpg for the 192hp petrol; 36.7mpg-53.3mpg for the front-wheel drive 150hp diesel; 36.7mpg-55.4mpg for the four-wheel drive 150hp diesel; and 39.8mpg-55.4mpg for the 190hp diesel.

CO2 emissions figures are: 122g/km-125g/km for the 140hp petrol; 129g/km-143g/km for the 192hp petrol; 113g/km-114g/km for the front-wheel drive 150hp diesel; 122g/km-125g/km for the four-wheel drive 150hp diesel; and 123g/km for the 190hp diesel. 

The upcoming plug-in hybrid model will pair a 125hp petrol engine with a 95hp electric motor.

It will come with a 9.7kWh battery, which BMW claims will mean a pure electric range of more than 31 miles. 

The revised regular X1 is available to order now, with deliveries beginning in July. Prices start at £28,795.

The plug-in hybrid will enter production in March next year.
