A HIGH performance range topper is joining the BMW X1 SUV line up in the shape of the new M35i xDrive.
Powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine developing 300hp the X1 M35i can achieve the 0 to 62mph sprint in 5.4 seconds with a top speed restricted to 155mph.
With the all-wheel-drive xDrive set up, the car has a seven speed semi-automatic transmission with paddle shifters as well as other BMW M tweaks such as uprated steering, adaptive suspension and an M Sport exhaust system with dual twin outlets at the rear of the car.
Body changes include a sporty front bumper and spoiler as well as M specific graphics in the instrument display.
The new BMW X1M35ixDrive is also a technological trailblazer for BMW and is among the first models to feature the new BMW iDrive with QuickSelect and BMW Operating System 9.
It will be priced from around £46,000 when it arrives in the UK towards the end of 2023.
