In addition the BMW X model comes with high level of agility and compact exterior dimensions.

What is highlighted in the exterior design are the sweeping bonnet, long wheelbase and set-back passenger compartment. As their "consequence" the car looks more dynamic and agility inherent.

And if one looks at the vehicle from the front, immediately sees that the X1's powerful stance is further emphasized.

Furthermore, BMW is going to offer a larger number of surfaces painted in body colour.  For example, the path of the car's lines, which converge on the license plate mount from either side of the BMW kidney and forge outwards in the lower section of the bumper, is borrowed from BMW X models in higher vehicle segments.

2013 X1 comes with newly designed headlight and a chrome-coated accent strip, which cuts across the top of the twin circular headlights. Additionally, an LED accent light is completed with LED light rings for the daytime driving lights.

Moreover, the swage line which is rising to the rear of the car, another character line extending the contours of the side window surrounds as it heads towards the rear, and powerfully bulging wheel arches give the BMW X1 a very distinctive appeal. These side skirts are a specific signature feature of BMW X models, while the side direction indicators are now integrated into the newly designed exterior mirrors.

Nothing else but a premium feel can be offered by a BMW. In the new X1 this is underlined at the rear by the new subdivision of apron, bumper and underguard, with the repositioned reflectors. In addition it is now bordered by surfaces painted in body colour. This means that now the black plastic elements are slimmer, while the silver-coloured underguard has a more striking surface structure.

On the other hand the interior is all about precise lines, high-quality materials, and sophisticated colour scheme. They are all here to offer the well-known premium feel of a BMW vehicle. In details, the side of the centre console is angled towards the driver. It is now shallower, spotlighting the driver-focused nature of the cockpit design.

Additionally, high-quality electroplated surrounds are being used for the gearshift and centre console cupholder, while a chrome strip came in utilization for the headlight switch. Chrome touches can be seen on the side edging of the Control Display. Next, the air vent surrounds are made in high-gloss black surface.
