BMW India is going to launch the 2.0-liter diesel engine SUV variant, X1 on the 23rd of this December. Bringing an end to the long wait of BMW fans in India, the company has certainly come in with some Christmas gifts. BMW has been able to maintain its market leadership position for the third consecutive time this year. By bringing in the new BMW X1 the company is confident that it will increase sales and make the BMW brand accessible to more buyers.
The launch function will take place at the Deutsche Motoren, New Delhi in the afternoon hours of December 23.
BMW India will be launching two variants (Corporate Edition and High line) of the X1. The vehicle would be priced somewhere between Rs 24-30 Lakh and the deliveries should begin sometime early next year. Since this is the cheapest variant of BMW cars in india, so there won’t be any fancy eye-popping gadgets to come as standard fitment.

Before their series launch, these wheels are subjected to a series of tough on-road tests to ensure they meet the highest quality standards. Poured from aluminium, BMW light alloy wheels are very lightweight and, coupled with the chassis, provide optimal suspension comfort. That way, they don’t just look fantastic, they also feel that way.
3. Roof rack system for the BMW X1.
The multi-functional BMW roof carrier rack system is composed of a high-strength aluminium alloy, making it especially lightweight, durable and corrosion-proof. The carriers are precisely fitted for your BMW X1 and have undergone a series of extensive tests. The lockable bicycle racks are available for racing, touring and mountain bikes alike. The bike attachments for the tow bar are ideally suited for transporting two bikes; an extension for a third bike is also available on demand.
