2022 BMW X1: Outgoing model now only front-wheel drive

BMWA Australia Silent flagship has removed the outgoing version of All-Wheel Drive X1 Following the launch of its new generation model which is set to arrive locally before the end of 2022.

A spokesman for BMW Australia has confirmed that the BMW X1 xDrive25i will be discontinued in October 2021. It keeps trimming existing front-wheel drive sDrive18i and sDrive20i for soldiers until newer models arrive.

The one-time flagship X1 xDrive25i is no longer available for configuration on the BMW Australia website, nor is it in the current specification guide for the X1 range.

However, according to the website’s stock locator tool, xDrive25i models are still available for purchase across the BMW dealer network.

The BMW X1 xDrive25i was powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 170kW of power and 350Nm of torque. It was combined with an eight-speed torque converter transmission.

It was also the fastest version of the outgoing X1 range, capable of sprinting 0-100km / h in 6.5 seconds.

The F84-generation BMW X1 has been selling locally since 2015, receiving a mid-life update in 2019.

BMW recently released two sports versions of the X1 in May 2022, with the X2 sDrive18i Sport, the SDrive18i and the sDrive20i camouflage.

The price of the outgoing 2022 BMW X1 range is as follows:

  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive18i: $ 47,900
  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive18d: $ 53,900
  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive18i Sport: $ 55,990 Drive-Away
  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive20i: $ 56,900
  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive20i Sport: $ 67,990 Drive-Away

All prices exclude on-road costs unless otherwise specified.

As mentioned above, BMW has just released a new, third-generation X1 model that will be available worldwide with petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrids and electric powertrains. So far only petrol and electric models have been locked for Australia.

The X1 will arrive in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2022, the iX1 will follow the first quarter of 2023.

The brand new entry-level SUV will act as its new entry-level electric vehicle in the new iX1 camouflage, indirectly replacing the weird i3 hatchback.

The new X1 is still based on the 1 Series, 2 Series Gran Coupe, X2, as well as the front- and all-wheel drive FAAR platforms used in the Mini Hatch, Countryman and Clubman.

It is larger in every dimension than the outgoing model which translates into a more indoor space with a larger boot.

The X1 and iX1 are brand new BMW operating systems 8 and the latest BMW to get a curved display, with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system on one display.

Standard tools include wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual-zone climate control, internal cameras, automatic parking assistance, and satellite navigation, including charging-optimized routing for the iX1.

BMW will reveal the price and local specifications of the new X1 and iX1 near launch.
