BMW has just launched its entry-level SUV, the X1 with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine making 190 PS of power at 4000 RPM and 400 Nm of torque at 1750 RPM. The engine is capable of pushing the SUV from 0-100 km/hr in 7.9 seconds while delivering fuel efficiency of 21 km/l.

In terms of design, the current-gen X1 was a hybrid that looked part sedan, part hatchback and part SUV. The new X1 clears all doubts about its identity and looks like an SUV from all angles. Adding to its stance is the appearance that's more like the X3 than an evolution of the X1. The 17-inch alloy wheels too play their part in giving it a hulking look, which come wrapped in 225/55 rubber.

The car's dimensions have been increased to improve leg room, shoulder room and head room. The wheels have been stretched very far out giving it a planted stance, both when still as well as when in motion.

Move to the inside and you are greeted with a beautifully laid out cabin with a mix of wood, silver accents, all-black dashboard as well as beige upholstery. The new gear shift is well placed and the entire equipment is driver aligned. The stretched dimensions translate to a roomier cabin than the  outgoing version.
