2013 BMW X1 Arrives This Fall in US: Mega Gallery

Slated to arrive this Fall for the first time in U.S. dealerships, BMW released a huge gallery its 2013 X1 to showcase its facelifted crossover.

Canada got dibs on the BMW X1 in 2011, but the smallest of the X Series won’t make its American debut until this fall with the updated 2013 model. Priced lower than the Audi Q5, the Bavarian crossover will start at $31,545, which is more than $4,000 cheaper than the current Audi Q5.

With two gasoline engines available in the U.S. lineup, customers will be able to choose between a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four with 240 hp and 260 lb-ft or a turbo 3.0-liter inline-six with 300hp and 300 lb-ft for $39,345.

The lower-priced X1 sDrive28i features rear-wheel drive and is the base model, while the brand’s “x-drive” all-wheel drive system is available for an additional fee. The higher-level X1 xDrive35i, on the other hand, is only available in the all-wheel drive configuration as its name suggests.

Drivers who opt for the four-cylinder model will get an 8-speed automatic transmission good for 24/33 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive and 22/30 with all-wheel drive.

Choosing the inline six-cylinder will obviously compromise fuel efficiency in favor of performance, but the transmission changes too. A 6-speed automatic replaces its calmer counterpart and gets 18/27 mpg city/highway.

While the latest BMW crossover to hit the States isn’t available yet, you can click through our gallery below to get an idea of what to expect later this year.

    Does seem bit overpriced. It will be interesting to see how the pricing compares with an X3 with similar equipment levels.
