According to BMW, all BMW X1 models will have ran 8.8-inch touchscreen that displays the latest generation of the company’s infotainment system. Besides that it has standard navigational system with Apple CarPlay compatibility. But the X1 still isn’t compatible with Android Auto.
While coming to the power engine, the crossover is equipped with a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder. That enables to produce 228 horsepower from 5,000 to 6,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque. And over a broad range stretches from 1,450 and 4,500 rpm.
