Bmw revealed today the first photos with the X1 crossover fitted with the M Sports Package. Furthermore, the Bavarian manufacturer announced that the new M Sports Package will be available for all Bmw X1 model versions from spring 2011. The new M Sports Package for the Bmw X1 includes a new front bumper, new side sills as well as a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and exhaust system.

Moreover, the package will include door sills with the “M” logo and BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line trim for the side window surrounds and roof rails.

As expected, 6 metallic exterior paint colours will be available in conjunction with the M Sports package: Alpine White, Le Mans Blue, Sapphire Black, Space Grey, Vermillion Red and Mineral White. The kit will be completed by the include sports suspension calibration and 17-inch double-spoke M alloy wheels for even sharper driving dynamics.

As an option, the car will be available with 18-inch double-spoke M alloy wheels. Inside, we will find sports seats upholstered in cloth/alcantara, an M leather-trimmed steering wheel with multifunction buttons and an M footrest for the driver.

And this is not all, as Bmw will also offer a BMW Individual roof liner in Anthracite, dark cross-brushed aluminium interior trim, the M gearshift lever for vehicles with six-speed manual transmission and a leather handbrake lever gaiter.

Thanks to its high-performance suspension technology and a robust body structure, the new BMW X1 xDrive28i is able to deliver an agile, precise and confident handling. The X1 optimally blends ride quality and sporty handling, as made possible by double-joint spring-strut thrust bar axle at the front and the five-arm rear axle. Furthermore, its hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering system offers precise power assistance.

The BMW X1 boasts of very high torsional rigidity, achieved partly by an intelligent use of high-tensile and ultra-high-tensile steels. The right materials as well as the positioning and geometry of struts, braces and other supporting members are all designed to deliver maximum crashworthiness while optimizing weight and agility.

As standard, the new X1 is equipped with front and side airbags, side curtain head airbags for the front and rear cabins. All seat feature three-point inertia-reel belts as standard, featuring belt latch tensioners and belt force limiters and at the front.

Lighting up the way for the new BMW X1 are standard twin round headlights with daytime running lights. They could be optional specified as bi-xenon headlights with sidelights and daytime running lights. At the rear, the X1 features tail lights employing LED fiber optic technology that further emphasize L-shape of the clusters. BMW is also offering more optional features for the BMW X1: High-Beam Assistant, Adaptive Headlights and a rain sensor.
