Interested in a BMW X1?
Let us help you take the next step

Although there’s a new-generation BMW X1 just around the corner, the current model still has life in it.

The X1 goes head-to-head with the likes of the Audi Q3, Lexus UX, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Mini Countryman, and Volvo XC40.

Since its mid-life update in 2019, the X1 range has remained largely unchanged besides some recent alterations given it’s now in a run-out phase.

The once-flagship, all-wheel drive X1 xDrive25i went out of production in October 2021, leaving the rest of the range to be front-wheel drive only until the new model arrives.

There are still xDrive25i models that can be purchased through BMW dealer network, per the stock locator on the website.

In May 2022, BMW Australia also introduced the limited edition X1 sDrive18i Sport and sDrive20i Sport which have “unique specification” with a “host of luxury and convenience features”.

The 2022 BMW X1 range starts at $47,900 before on-road costs for the sDrive18i and extends to $67,900 drive-away for the sDrive20i Sport.

BMW recently upped the asking price for the regular sDrive20i by $1000 as part of a wider range price increase.

To the end of May 2022, BMW sold a total of 1176 X1 models according to VFACTS. It was outsold by the Volvo XC40 (2269 sales), Mercedes-Benz GLA (1307 sales) and the Audi Q3 (1247 sales).


  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive18i: $47,900

  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive20i: $56,900
  • 2022 BMW X1 sDrive20i Sport: $67,900 drive-away

All prices are before on-road costs unless specified otherwise.


The 2022 BMW X1 is one of the few cars in its segment to still offer a diesel powertrain.

sDrive18i models are powered by a 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol producing 103kW of power and 220Nm of torque. This is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch with drive sent to the front wheels only.

sDrive18d models are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel producing 110kW and 330Nm. This is mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic with drive sent to the front wheels only.
