BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY.
The combination of economical BMW TwinPower Turbo engines, intelligent lightweight construction and sophisticated aerodynamics form the basis in the all-new BMW X1 for enhanced driving pleasure with reduced fuel consumption. Rounding off this approach are BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as the standard-feature energy management with Automatic Start/Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration. Options such as the 8-speed Automatic Transmission Steptronic help to further increase efficiency and dynamics in the all-new BMW X1.
The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system adapts nearly perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, always offering outstanding traction. xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) ensure that the BMW remains perfectly stable. Controlled via the DSC sensor system, xDrive flexibly and quickly distributes drive power between the axles in order to prevent oversteer or understeer, thereby ensuring outstanding directional stability. In critical road conditions, the DSC doesn't need to intervene as much. BMW xDrive combines all the advantages of an all-wheel drive system with its traction, directional stability and driving safety. It delivers classic BMW agility for even more driving pleasure.
The Steptronic transmissions set standards in comfort, dynamics and efficiency. They are a key constituent of the BMW EfficientDynamics measures. The especially fine spacing of the gears permits optimum power build-up at all speeds. This reduces fuel consumption substantially while, at the same time, providing you with even more sportiness and dynamics.
8-speed Automatic Transmission Steptronic
The 8-speed Automatic Transmission Steptronic ensures smoother gear shifts and greater driving comfort, thanks to fast engine speed transitions and short shift times. It unites outstanding comfort with impressive dynamics and increased fuel efficiency.
8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission Steptronic
The 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission Steptronic adapts to suit individual driving styles. It ranges from comfortable cruising to very dynamic handling. In SPORT mode, the gear shifts are configured for maximum performance. Gears can be changed manually by using the gear lever or the gearshift paddles on the Sport leather steering wheel.
CITY, COUNTRY, DRIVING PLEASURE.
Experience the driving dynamics of the BMW X1.
The coasting function decouples the drivetrain from the engine and the vehicle rolls without any engine resistance. The car ʽcoastsʼ when the driver takes their foot off the accelerator between 50 and 160 km/h and does not apply the brakes. If needed, the Route-ahead assist can intelligently suppress coasting.
ECO PRO route
ECO PRO route shows the most efficient route based on the traffic situation, driving style and local conditions. The on-board computer displays the percentage of fuel that can be saved by driving along the route selected by ECO PRO route.
Based on data from the navigation system, the Route-ahead assist recognises speed limits, built-up areas, bends, roundabouts, turns and highway exits, and advises the driver to stop accelerating at just the right moment.
INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT.
Like every BMW, the all-new BMW X1 also has BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as the Automatic Start/Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration and electromechanical power steering as standard features. All the technologies work together as intelligent energy management to provide the mobility of the future today.
Automatic Start/Stop function
The Automatic Start/Stop function switches off the engine when the vehicle comes to a temporary standstill (e.g. at robots or in a traffic jam) to further reduce overall fuel consumption. When the driver presses down on the clutch (manual transmission) or takes their foot off the brake (Steptronic transmission), the engine automatically starts up again in a fraction of a second.
Brake Energy Regeneration
With Brake Energy Regeneration, the alternator generates electricity primarily when the driver brakes or takes their foot off the accelerator. Previously unused kinetic energy is transformed into electrical energy and fed into the battery. The alternator therefore no longer needs to run constantly, fuel consumption drops and the engine's full output is then available for the drive train when accelerating.
Electromechanical power steering
Unlike hydraulic systems, electromechanical power steering is only active when the driver actually steers. This means that less energy and therefore, less fuel is consumed.
Optimum Shift Indicator
Perfectly timed gear shifts can significantly help save fuel, particularly in urban traffic and over long distances. Changing gears at the right time means you use less fuel. The engine’s electronics system identifies the most efficient gear, based on road conditions and engine speed. An arrow lights up in the Info Display to show when it would be more efficient to shift into a higher or lower gear. The system also recognises quick acceleration, and will delay its recommendation accordingly until the engine speed has increased. Drivers using a Steptronic transmission in manual mode also receive relevant shifting suggestions. BMW internal comparative tests have shown that vehicles with the Optimum Shift Indicator use around 4 percent less fuel.
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for the BMW X1 models with petrol or diesel engine:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 6.6 to 4.1
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 152 to 109
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for the BMW X1 xDrive25i:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 6.6 to 6.4
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 152 to 149
