BMW India has launched the facelifted version of the BMW X1 at a stunning price of Rs. 27.9 lakhs.
India fell in love with the BMW X1 when it was launched in 2009. To be able to afford a BMW for the price of humdrum SUVs such as the CR-V, the Fortuner and the Captiva was something extraordinary for Indian masses. A luxury German badge was suddenly within the reach of many. The X1 crossover managed to keep BMW India on top for a good 3 years!
However the times are changing and the X1 is feeling the heat from the competition such as the Audi Q3 and Mercedes B-Class. Thus, BMW India has decided to the show its rivals who created the whole segment in the first place.
The BMW X1 facelift was unveiled at the New York Motor Show in April 2012. Being the best seller in BMW’s ‘X’ range, there was no requirement to change the recipe drastically.
