RM 220,800 - 233,800 TBC
C-Segment SUV | 2.0T

For those shopping for a compact luxury crossover, your options are aplenty.

there’s no denying that the new x1 price looks a lot like the larger bmw x1 2020 2019 2020 then there’s the bmw x1’s comfort levels, which is miles ahead of the (outgoing) bmw x1 – the gla’s suspension tuning is too firm for daily use, unlike the x1’s far more forgiving ride.

never mind rivals such as the upcoming mercedes-benz gla and its suave interior, current alternatives like the bmw x1 2020 have a considerably more upmarket and practical interior.

It proved to be so well-received that BMW went on to sell over 820,000 units over the model’s 6-year lifespan.

Yes, we are aware that the XC40 has a price premium over the X1 (RM 255,888 vs RM 233,800), but it is well justified.

Starting with powertrain, the Swede does 252 PS and 350 Nm, 60 PS and 70 Nm more than the X1.

included in the 2020 update for the x1 price is a newer 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system running on idrive operating system 6.0, enabling support for bmw x1 2019 sorry android users, but you’re out of luck.

Other changes include the new instrument cluster with an integrated 5.7-inch multi-info display and the addition of two USB-C ports for charging at the rear of the centre console, replacing the pre-LCI X1’s single 12V socket.

Powering the X1 LCI is BMW’s 2.0-litre B48 turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine, good for 192 PS and 280 Nm.

first introduced back in 2009, the x1 price is the first-ever luxury crossover from the bavarian manufacturer.

Then there’s the safety aspect of the XC40 – it includes the full City Safety ADAS suite, despite being Volvo’s most affordable model.

malaysia received the first-generation x1 (e84) back in 2010, before introducing the second-generation model in 2015.  x1 price fast forward to 2020, bmw malaysia just took the covers off the bmw x1 2019 , (lci, short for lifecycle improvement in bmw terminology) which is the model you see here.

Apart from the MINI Countryman, the other worthy alternative is the Volvo XC40.

Rounding up the exterior design are a set of 18-inch Style 570 M dual-tone alloy wheels.

The M Sport kit introduces large front fog light surrounds, more prominent side skirts, and a redesigned rear bumper with twin exhaust outlets.

The mid-life update for the X1 also gives the compact luxury crossover new full LED tail lights.

The revamped infotainment brings with it support for Apple CarPlay, as well the usual BMW ConnectedDrive suite of services.

Let’s take a closer look at the new X1 LCI versus the model it replaces.

But that’s where the good news ends – it is painfully obvious that the X1 came from an era of older BMW models, as its interior looks and feels dated.

While lower variants of the MINI Countryman share its powertrain with the X1, MINI Malaysia also offers the John Cooper Works version of the Countryman, which pumps out an eye-watering 306 PS.

The extra grunt allows the unassuming-looking XC40 to complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 6.4 seconds, as opposed to the 7.6 seconds of the X1.

for the malaysian market, the new f48 2020 bmw x1 2019 is equipped with a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine that does 192 ps and 280 nm, delivered to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

it also gets dakota leather upholstery, a powered tailgate, and x1 price suite of services.

the first option is the x1 price – essentially the same model as the x1, albeit wrapped in a more stylish package.

BMW Malaysia recently unveiled the X1 Life Cycle Impulse (LCI, facelift in BMW lingo), alongside the new 320i.

Being an M Sport model, the X1 gets a sprinkling of M bits and pieces, including style 570 M alloy wheels, M Aerodynamics exterior package, M Sport suspension, and an M leather steering wheel.

Furthermore, unlike the earlier model’s Sport Line trim, the X1 LCI is adorned in an eye-catching M Sport kit, giving it a sportier appeal.

furthermore, just like the x1 price 2020 , the x1 price also does not feature any bmw x1 features, so no autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, or forward collision warning.

Stepping into the X1 LCI, the new model gets a new M leather-wrapped steering wheel, an updated 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment display running on BMW Operating System 6.0.

But on-paper stats aside, the Volvo XC40 has a surprisingly practical interior, offering a lot of storage spaces that is well-suited for those who carry a lot of stuff.

starting with the front end of the new x1 price, the x1 lci gains a new trapezoid kidney grille, surrounded by new led headlights with more angular integrated led daytime running lights.

bmw malaysia offers 1 variant of the x1 – the front-wheel drive sdrive20i m sport, priced from rm 233,800.   bmw x1 2019 right off the bat, the second-generation model, especially after its update last year, looks the part.

The engine is hooked up to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic that helps deliver the power to the front wheels.
