X1 xDrive25e pricing starts from around £38,000. That's about £1,200 more than you'd pay for an equivalently-specified X1 xDrive20d diesel. And, for reference, £1,500 more than you'd pay for the same plug-in powertrain in BMW's 2 Series Active Tourer MPV. This is reasonable value when you consider that a rival Volvo XC40 Recharge T5 Plug-in hybrid costs from around £41,000. The X1 xDrive25e is offered with 'Sport', 'xLine' and 'M Sport' trim levels, the latter taking the asking price to around £40,000. If you want a sportier body style, the same powertrain is also offered with the brand's X2 crossover model.
Even base 'Sport' trim gives you quite a lot, with 18-inch Double-spoke alloy wheels, 'High-Gloss Shadowline' exterior trim, front inlets with a High-gloss black finisher and front bumper under-body protection. Inside, 'Sport' trim gets you sports seats, contrast stitching on the dash, LED ambient lighting and upholstery that's a smart combination of 'Anthracite' cloth and 'Sensatec' man-made leather. Top 'M Sport' trim stands out from the others thanks to 18-inch 'M light alloy Double-spoke' wheels, a 'Dark Shadow' finish for the bumpers and 'High-Gloss Shadowline' exterior trim that extends to the roof rails. There's also a standard 'M aerodynamic bodystyle' kit which includes enlarged front air intakes and a body-coloured finish for things like the underbody protection plate and the wheel arch trims.
