Each BMW X1 model features petrol or diesel BMW TwinPower Turbo engines in one of four cylinder configurations. Thanks to their variable turbine geometry they provide the kind of performance and power you would expect from much larger engines.
Each of these engines has been fine-tuned to minimise friction and reduce thermal losses. This means that emissions are reduced and efficiency is greatly increased, so you get more out of every litre of fuel.
Dynamic Damper Control.
The driving experience is further enhanced by features such as Dynamic Damper Control, which provides superior handling in all situations. The optional eight-speed Steptronic transmission ensures incredibly soft gear changes for increased driving comfort and significantly reduced fuel consumption.
ECO PRO Mode.
This cost-effectiveness is aided by innovations such as ECO PRO mode, which, when selected, maximises the efficiency of everything from driving style to climate control, allowing a saving of up to 20% on fuel.
ECO PRO Route Technologies.
An additional 5% can be saved using the Route Ahead Assistant and ECO PRO Route Technologies. This will provide the most efficient route to your destination and give driving style suggestions to minimise the amount of fuel used.
Another energy saving feature is Auto Start-Stop, which turns off the car’s engine when it comes to a temporary standstill (such as in traffic or at lights), further reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
Brake Energy Regeneration.
Brake Energy Regeneration uses energy from braking or decelerating to charge the car’s battery. This decreases the load on the engine, reduces emissions, saves fuel, and generates more power for acceleration.
