2016 BMW X1 Priced from $35,795

The 2016 BMW X1 will have a starting price of $35,795.

The German automaker has added the 2016 BMW X1 to its online configurator, revealing that the base model X1 xDrive28i will cost $3,945 more than the outgoing model. Part of that price increase can be attributed to the fact that the X1 is no longer available in rear-wheel drive and only comes equipped with BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive technology. The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, giving it an estimated zero to 60 mph time of 6.3 seconds.
