The M-Sport Package will hit the market this Spring in Europe. Latest reports expect the X1 to be launched in the US in Fall 2011. More information on the X1 here and on the all new generation of inline 4-cylinder turbo engines here.

Press Release


Debut: M Sport package for the BMW X1.
Simultaneously with the market launch of the new BMW X1 xDrive28i in spring 2011, an M Sport package will make its debut in this series. It will be available for all engine versions of the compact BMW X model and comprises suspension, exterior and interior components specially developed for this model. These features further enhance the vehicle’s sporty and agile driving qualities and give them a distinctive visual dimension as well. They include sports suspension calibration and 17-inch double-spoke M alloy wheels for even sharper driving dynamics. Alternatively, the M Sports package can be supplied with 18-inch double-spoke M alloy wheels.

The M Sports package for the BMW X1 also features an M Aerodynamics package, door sills with the “M” logo and BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line trim for the side window surrounds and roof rails. Also available in conjunction with the M Sports package are the metallic exterior paint colours Alpine White, Le Mans Blue, Sapphire Black, Space Grey, Vermillion Red and Mineral White.

Sports seats upholstered in cloth/alcantara, an M leather-trimmed steering wheel with multifunction buttons and an M footrest for the driver add to the driving pleasure when the BMW X1 is equipped with the M Sports package. The high-end sporty theme is capped off by a BMW Individual roof liner in Anthracite, dark cross-brushed aluminium interior trim, the M gearshift lever for vehicles with six-speed manual transmission and a leather handbrake lever gaiter.

too much aggressive for my taste. Looks better on versions with powerful engines. I still prefer the normal version with black trims around the wheels and the X-line. Plastic look...

The M-Sport Pack will be available from March 2011 on. No info on the 8-speed auto for the diesels yet.

That interior looks awesome! However I don't really like the 6.500 rpm rev limit for the new four-cylinder engine... Was kinda hoping for 7.000! I guess I'll have to delay my dissatisfaction until a testdrive though!

too bad it makes peak horsepower at 5,000 rpm which means everything after that is just over-rev

Interesting that they say the suspension is lowered. I wonder what the specifics are?

I love that they went with the cloth/alcantara(ala E46 ZHP) and the 18" wheels look like a nice upgrade as well.

This car doesn't have the new four-cylinder engine. The X1 28i appears to have a higher redline:

Front looks very X5M-ish... not a bad thing, but it's like a baby with a huge biceps...

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!
