You also get a new set of trendy allow wheels that add to the character of the X1. The back has also undergone visual changes with a new set of sharp-looking LED taillights.



Inside the cabin, you now get a new 8.8-inch touchscreen iDrive infotainment system which comes with a lot more features, but still only gets Apple CarPlay and not Android Auto. Apart from that, it gets a new panoramic sunroof, Ambient Lighting with six dimmable designs and a micro-activated carbon particulate filter that makes sure the cabin is supplied with pure and clean air.
