In August this year, BMW South Africa announced pricing for the new X1 sDrive 18i, the then sole model in the model line-up. Now, the local arm of the German marque has added the sDrive 18d to the range. Full pricing below…

BMW X1 sDrive18d

Priced from R813 116.60, the sDrive 18d, like its petrol-powered sibling, seemingly ships with the Bavarian brand’s xLine package. However, on BMW SA’s configurator, when ditching the 19-inch alloys and optioning the 18-inch wheels, the price comes in at R798 116.60. The diesel-powered X1 can also be had with the company’s M Sport package. This model is priced from R838 116.60. 

The sDrive 18d is equipped with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 110 kW and 360 Nm of torque, available from 3 750 r/min and a lowly 1 500 r/min, respectively. Coupled with a seven-speed automated dual-clutch transmission, BMW claims the diesel motor sips 5.0 L/100 on average. The 0-100 km/h sprint time and the top speed are rated at 8.9 seconds and 210 km/h.

As a reminder, the sDrive 18i’s 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbopetrol engine produces 115 kW and 230 Nm. BMW claims the petrol unit has an average fuel consumption figure of 6.5 L/100 km. This model sprints to 100 km/h from a standstill in a claimed 9.0 seconds before reaching a top speed of 215 km/h.
