BMW South Africa has revealed pricing for the soon-to-arrive new X1. See pricing below…

Currently comprising only one variant, the X1 is available in only sDrive 18i format. As standard, the X1 sDrive 18i seemingly ships with the German marque’s xLine package. The Bavarian brand’s M Sport package is also available at an additional cost.

Interestingly, though, on BMW SA’s configurator, trading the already-equipped ‘Equipment’ package for ‘Special package-1’ decreases the initial price of R803 045.40 by R3 000. Similarly, choosing the 18-inch alloys instead of the (already-equipped, R15 000) 19-inch wheels further decreases the cost to R745 000. Specifying the X1 sDrive 18i with the M Sport package adds R29 000 to the original list price. 

So, as standard, what’s included with the R803 045.40 xLine model? For starters, xLine spec features the ‘Equipment’ package and 19-inch alloy wheels mentioned above. Further included are a digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment and wireless smartphone charging. Adaptive LED headlamps are also present, as is ‘Comfort’ access. The seats are upholstered in perforated Sensatec. The interior features aluminium ‘Mesheffect’ trim.

On top of these items, BMW’s Equipment package Professional (R43 500) adds BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional set-up, a head-up display and Parking Assistant Plus. The latter package features a 360-degree camera system. The (R47 000) Premium package Plus further upgrades to a Harman/Kardon sound system, a panoramic sunroof and electric seat adjustment for the front pews and seat adjustment for the rear bench. 

Those wanting an X1 with a sportier-looking exterior are offered the M Sport package. Equipped with this package, the X1 sDrive 18i is priced at R832 045.40. As standard, the M Sport package includes 18-inch M light-alloy wheels and adaptive M suspension. BMW’s high-gloss Shadow Line trim is also present. The interior features high-gloss black interior trim, as are several other items.
