BMW X1 M35i Launch Details

The X1 M35i will go on sale in Europe in November 2023. While BMW India haven’t revealed their plans to launch the X1 M35i, we expect it to be very much on the cards. The India-bound X1 comes with a 1.5L 3-cylinder turbo petrol and a 150PS 2.0L turbo diesel, which feel rather meek to cater to enthusiasts. The X1 M35i could become the performance benchmark in its segment and rubs its shoulders against the Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 in the Indian market.
