Inviting Interior: X Marks the Spot

BMW X1 InteriorYour journey in the 2020 X1 begins the moment you walk up to the vehicle. When you unlock the door, you’ll be greeted by an X-sign projection welcoming you to the driver’s cockpit. It sets a tone of subtlety and intrigue for the ride ahead!

As you settle in, you’ll find yourself surrounded by deluxe materials. Available Oyster Dakota leather looks sleek and boasts incredible quality—and it goes well with the high-gloss Black interior trim with Pearl Chrome highlights. The 8-way power front seats are the very definition of comfort.

Your passengers can watch the starry skies pass overhead through the available Panoramic Moonroof. It extends over both rows of seats and expends the sense of spaciousness of your ride.
