BMW X1 Engine & Gearbox

In India BMW has chosen to launch the new X1 with just one engine option – the 2 litre diesel – but the good news is that unlike the past this is not a tweaked version of the older engine. This is an all new engine, and also uses BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology, or basically variable turbine geometry which allows the engine to put out slightly higher power (about 7-8 bhp more), but still reduces consumption (and emissions) by 17% according to manufacturer data.

The 1995cc unit puts out 190bhp and a generous 400 Nm of torque. The gearbox is also new – the 8 speed Steptronic with paddle shifters – which is very quick and well-mated to the engine. The revelation in fact is how quickly the gear changes go through, and also how quickly the engine responds – without the slightest hint of lag. Where the new X1 scores high also is in the ride department. The ride quality is completely un-BMW-like – meaning it is not stiffly sprung and the car glides over bad roads and offers excellent occupant comfort. The downside of all this though – Handling suffers – and so unlike the 1st gen X1 which was very confident going into sharp corners and hard turns, the new car is less enthusiastic by comparison.

BMW X1 Ride & Handling

The powerful 1995cc mill along with the 8-speed transmission gearbox gives the SUV enormous power that allows it to reach its top speed of 219kmph in no time. The pickup is also smooth and it crosses 100kmph from standstill in just 7.6 seconds. For a bump free ride, it has an advanced M Sports suspension system that keeps the car running smoothly even on uneven roads.To know more details on BMW X1 check Bigintmedia
