BMW X1 SAV
Versatile, Sporty and Elegant Design
Born with the concept of ‘sporty yet elegant’ Crossover concept, the BMW X1 SAV features a harmonized combination of typical SAV characters (such as robust design, extra ground clearance, elevated seating position) and sporty performance tourer characters (such as short overhangs, long wheelbase and ground-hugging stance). This uniquely innovative concept is translated into the perfect proportion and into each and every detail of its sporty yet elegant design. The Crossover BMW X1 has a stretched proportion characterizing its sportiness: 4.45 meters in length, a long wheelbase of 2.76 meters, long bonnet, low-raked rear window and slightly sloping roof line. Nevertheless, it harmoniously integrates the genuine BMW X characters such as almost-squared muscular wheel arches, striking surfaces, slender protection trim around the lower part of the body, and the upright BMW kidney grille.
Interior Design with Sporting Spirit
Sophisticated, Functional and Modern
The characters of dynamic sporty Crossover are integrated into the sophisticated functional interior design. The elevated seating position so typical of a BMW X model allows easy access to the car, at the same time giving the driver an optimized overview of traffic conditions and, as a result, outstanding supremacy at the wheel. The special design of the centre console and the dashboard area around the cockpit offers an appropriate reinterpretation of the driver orientation so typical of a BMW.
