BMW is gearing up to launch the brand-new iX1 and the X1 SUVs in India at the Joytown fest in Bengaluru. Early last year, the company showcased these cars on a global level. Speaking of the powertrain, the new BMW X1 is likely to be offered with a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine that could produce 136bhp and 230Nm of torque. A 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that could generate 150bhp and 360Nm of torque might also be available. The standard transmission option will be a seven-speed DCT. The all-new BMW iX1, on the other hand, is most likely to come equipped with a 64.7kWh battery pack that claims to offer 439 kilometre of range on a single full charge. The two electric motors, located on each axle, are calibrated to deliver a combined output of 313bhp and 493Nm.
Outside, the kidney grille on the new-generation BMW X1 is large, and the headlights now have thinner L-shaped DRLs. The flat door handles are also new. The new X1 will seem more like an SUV while maintaining a sporty appearance. The SUV's proportions have also changed, making it longer than the Audi Q3 in the SUV segment. The entry-level SUV also has a new alloy wheel design, a revamped rear profile, a redesigned boot lid, and a set of LED taillights. The interior of the 2023 BMW iX1 and X1 is new, with a curving dashboard display. Now, the centre console has a floating armrest and a wireless charging pad that is stacked vertically.

BMW claims that the new X1 has enhanced inside space with more shoulder and elbow room than the outgoing X1 due to the new model's 43mm taller, 23mm wider, and 43mm longer dimensions. In India, the new X1 will go up against vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLA and the Volvo XC40. The iX1, on the other hand, will compete against the Volvo XC40 Recharge, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and the Kia EV6.

The exterior styling, internal layout, and feature list of the new X7 have all undergone extensive changes by the automaker to set it apart from the outgoing model. The recently launched X7 facelift will go up against vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLS and the Audi Q7 in the marketplace.
