If you are thinking about buying a luxurious brand but you are rather low on the budgets, the 2018 BMW X1 can be an option. With less than $40,000, you can get a reliable brand with a very sturdy and solid construction. Naturally, you shouldn’t expect too much from it, especially if you are thinking about having the high-end features and performance. But in the overall retrospect, the ride should be enough to cater your basic needs – and it can do it with style.
Just like other products, there is something good about 2018 BMW X1 although you shouldn’t close your eyes about the downsides either. The turbo 4 engine is nice, even responsive. It is something you want to have when you are driving around with a solid brand. Not to mention that it is accompanied with responsive auto 8 speed transmission, which only adds the superiority of the car. The overall design is good although pretty subtle and not too much. The cargo area is pretty big and spacious, and the base model comes with very good value.
Despite all of the perks, there are still some downsides. The safety package, for a starter, is pretty expensive and costly. And the fact that the company doesn’t make manual transmission is something that is considered a downgrade. For the front seat area, the arrangement and the overall styling isn’t promising or considered the best. But then again, not many crossover with super luxurious brand would be willing to come up with an inexpensive ride without compromising (too much) of its features. So, consider it a good offer from Beemer.
There is no doubt that Beemer always comes with handsome and good looking design. With a basic design looking like a tall wagon, the ride looks solid, buff, and sturdy. With the combination of side shapes, front side bumpers, and kidney grille, Beemer maintains its signature look without making it look ugly or cheesy for this 2018 BMW X1. In short, this ride has an elegance poise and graceful stance.
For the interior cabin, the overall effect is pretty simple although there is a flair or luxury and exclusivity. The display screen on the dashboard will attract everyone’s attention. With wood accents, the cabin doesn’t look like a budget interior – at least for the untrained eyes.
Although this variant may not have a boosting power, it is pretty adequate with excellent transmission. The all wheel driving system, the turbo four 2.0 liter engine, and the smooth handle is pretty enough to create an impressive ground. The outcome is 228 hp of power – which isn’t much if you expect a sports ride performance, but it should be enough. It is able to reach 60 mph within 6.4 seconds so it isn’t bad at all.
The 2018 BMW X1 price is set around $35,000 – making it a budget friendly ride with a touch of exclusivity and luxury. If you are thinking about having an inexpensive ride from a well-known brand, this 2018 BMW X1 won’t disappoint you.
BMW 5 Series Touring Specs and Features – BMW’s answer to Mercedes’ E-Class Estate will come in the form of the 5 series. The company unveiled its most current edition car variation of its full-sized 5 Series, with the 2018 BMW 5 Series Touring. BMW revealed the model ahead of its world premiere in March 2017 at the Geneva International Motor Show.
The upcoming BMW 5 Series Touring will be larger, lighter and more high tech than the old model when it goes on sale in June 2017. BMW’s recently revealed full details on its new executive estate before it makes its public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The 5 Series variant boasts an athletic develop and dynamic extended lines. The interior blends sportiness and flexibility. The variant’s prices will start from $49,000 (£38,385).
The surface contouring will produce a clearly specified athletic build and dynamically extended lines. Meanwhile, the outside style of the new BMW 5 Series Touring will express the blend of driving pleasure and flexibility for which the variant is known for. The vehicle’s tail area has an individual style that shows the increased amount of space on top of this design’s practical and flexible usability.
Netcarshow reported that the brand-new 5 Series Touring is 36 millimeters longer than the 2016 model (at 4,943 millimeters). The Touring is also eight millimeters wider (1,868 millimeters) and ten millimeters taller (1,498 millimeters) than the outgoing model. In addition, BMW extended the wheelbase by seven millimeters, with a space of 2,975 millimeters. The extension helped to increase the room available for both passengers and luggage.
The styling of the front end instantly projected the sporty essence of the new 5 Series Touring. The front finish of the new Touring features standard LED headlights that extend as far as the BMW kidney grille. It flows to the long roof-line, into D-pillars.
The back window is framed by a roofing system spoiler with incorporated auxiliary brake light and air deflectors at the sides. Consumers will also see L-shaped rear lights that reach into the car’s flanks to accentuate the body’s width. This forms a constant strip that will provide included effect to the car’s width without compromising the air consumption to emphasize its effective stature.
BMW equipped the 5-Series Touring with LED headlights that also employed LED systems as the light source for the daytime driving lights. A horizontal bar joined the inner daytime driving light ring with the BMW kidney grille accentuating the front end’s sense of width.
The lengthened silhouette brings a new component of the surface styling to the front. The roofing system spoiler with integral auxiliary brake light on top and air deflectors surrounded the rear windows. All engine versions of the new BMW 5 Series Touring have exhausted tailpipes on both sides at the rear.
Topspeed reported that four engine options will be readily available, each including BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. They consist of a 2.0-litre four-cylinder gas engine with 252 hp output. There is also an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and all-wheel-drive system, great for 340 hp coming from a 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line gas engine. A four-cylinder engine with 190 hp and a 3.0-litre straight-six diesel system, producing 265 hp are available as well. The 2018 BMW 5 Series Touring will launch on dealerships in the United States on June 2017.
2017 BMW 4 Series, M4 Update Revealed – The facelifted 2017 BMW 4 Series and M4 lines have been revealed this week, bringing a fresh look and updated infotainment systems to the Bavarian company’s popular coupe and convertible range.
While it may not look too different from the car currently on sale, the updated 2017 BMW 4 Series picks up new bi-LED headlights, LED tail-lights and LED fog lights – similar to those on the revised 3 Series – updated bumpers, new exterior and interior colour options and new alloy wheel designs.
Snapper Rocks Blue and Sunset Orange (pictured) are new and exclusive to the 2017 BMW 4 Series range.
Inside, the 2017 BMW 4 Series is endowed with updated trims, including lashings of chrome, double-stitching on the instrument panel, three new upholstery colours and three new interior trim options.
There is a new Navigation Professional system which features a redesigned interface similar to that in the new 5 Series, with customisable tile-style menus that are said to be easier to use.
Also available is the Multifunctional Instrument Display, which is a digital driver’s instrument cluster that can be customised depending on the selected driving mode.
BMW has also revised the suspension of the 2017 BMW 4 Series in this update, which is now stiffer compared to the outgoing model. The company says the new tune delivers sportier handling without sacrificing ride comfort, with adjustments made to both the standard suspension and M Sport suspension packages.
As before, the 2017 BMW 4 Series range is available (in Europe at least) with a range of turbocharged four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, with the option of rear-wheel drive or xDrive all-wheel drive.
The European market is offered a total of 31 model and powertrain variants in the 4 Series range, though it’s likely Australia’s line-up will largely mirror the current model.
BMW has also updated the hardcore M4, which gains the same full-LED head- and tail-light treatments, along with new cabin elements and the updated infotainment system available in the wider 4 Series range.
In the official images it appears the BMW M4 receives the star-spoke alloy wheels from the current Competition Package variant as standard, though BMW has not confirmed whether the 3.0-litre twin-turbo six gets any power bumps over the current 317kW/550Nm tune of the current ‘standard’ version.
BMW’s local arm has confirmed it expects the updated 4 Series range to arrive Down Under in the second half of 2017, though can’t provide any further details.
Expect full pricing and specifications closer to launch, so stay tuned for an update.
