BMW Group Australia has announced specification and pricing updates for its X1 Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) range, as well as its X2 Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) models.

BMW’s ‘Navigation System Plus’ interface, and head-up display, is now fitted as standard to the entire X1 range. Previously, these advanced technologies were standard only on the top-line BMW X1 xDrive25i.

The navigation and infotainment system has an 8.8-inch colour touchscreen display and app-style interface. It can also be controlled via the iDrive Touch controller or Natural Voice Recognition.

The BMW Head Up Display aids safety with a customisable array of information available unobtrusively in the driver’s line of sight.

BMW X2 now has the Navigation System Plus interface and head-uo as standard, range-wide. Previously, these enhancements were part of an option package.

Apple CarPlay, previously optional, is now fitted as standard equipment on the X1, the X2 ranges now benefit from Apple CarPlay as standard.

The sDrive18i now has 19-inch alloy wheels, a Y-spoke arrangement finished in Orbit Grey. Previously, this variant sat on 18-inch light alloy wheels.

CONDITION BASED SERVICING
All maintenance requirements for the BMW X1 and X2 ranges are controlled by the advanced Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system. Sensors and algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, distance and time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven. Based on the information, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due.

Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.

In addition to the equipment upgrades, BMW Australia has reduced the price of the sDrive20i and xDrive25i X1. The sDrive20i now has a recommended price starting from $50,900 while the all-wheel drive xDrive25i is $60,900. Other X1 prices remain unchanged.
