From Autumn 2011, the BMW X1 xDrive20d EfficientDynamics will become the cleanest and most economical BMW X model.
A 2.0 litre four-cylinder diesel engine will produce 163bhp, and has a combined fuel consumption figure of 62.8mpg and a CO2 emissions figure of 119g/km, resulting in a company car taxation band of 13 per cent for business drivers.
The TwinPower Turbo technology found in the new BMW X1 combines a variable geometry turbocharger and high-pressure fuel injection, which provides maximum power at 4000rpm with a peak torque figure of 380Nm at 1750rpm through to 2750rpm. To reduce vibrations at low engine speeds is a centrifugal pendulum absorber in the dual-mass flywheel.
The new BMW X1 xDrive20d EfficientDynamics features Auto Start-stop, Brake Energy Regeneration and an Optimum Shift Indicator which is adapted to suit the new engine's characteristics. Other standard features include tyres with reduced rolling resistance fitted to Streamline-design light alloy wheels, electro-mechanical power steering and an air conditioning compressor which can be disengaged. A long final drive ratio reduces engine revolutions at motorway speeds. The 0-62mph time is 8.3 seconds.
The BMW X1 xDrive20d EfficientDynamics prices start at £25,715 on the road, and will be on sale in September 2011.
