Presenting the 2022 BMW X1 Performance

2022 BMW X1 PerformanceBMW is confident that its singular 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine will provide all the power you need for your drive. This engine is coupled with the fuel-saving 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission and can produce up to 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

Thanks to this power, the vehicle can go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.6 seconds. How an SAV® distributes its weight is important. Therefore, the X1 has standard features, like Dynamic Stability Control and Dynamic Traction Control.

These features provide sport-like driving dynamics for even stability and improved traction. That means better overall precision when taking on curves in the road or slipping in and out of parking spots.

To experience this kind of drive no matter the conditions, add available xDrive. This is BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, which combats slippery roads by distributing the engine’s power to all four wheels. It’s perfect for traveling during inclement weather conditions, like rain, snow, or sleet.

40.4 inches/37.0 inches
