BMW X1 dis­played in the Red Sea coastal re­sort Soma Bay for the 1st time in Egypt

BMW Egypt just re­vealed The All-New BMW X1 for the 1st time in Egypt, the car was dis­played in the Red Sea coastal re­sort Soma Bay on Jan­uary 22nd when all the clas­sic rock fans headed there to at­tend The Dire Straits Ex­pe­ri­ence con­cert. BMW or­ga­nized a test-drive for the guests of Soma Bay dur­ing the week­end to ex­pe­ri­ence the plea­sure of driv­ing the all-new BMW X1 with the new spec­i­fi­ca­tions and tech­nolo­gies.

The new BMW X1 – the suc­ces­sor to the model that blazed the trail for this class of car – treats the pre­mium com­pact seg­ment to an even more po­tent shot of Sports Ac­tiv­ity Ve­hi­cle DNA. The sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of this suc­cess­ful model, more than 730,000 units of which have now been sold, takes to the stage with a body de­sign straight out of the BMW X model mould.

With a 1.5L 136 Horse­power 3 Cylin­ders en­gine, fuel con­sump­tion is re­duced to 5.3 litres for ev­ery 100 KM. The new BMW X1 goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.7 sec­onds, with a top speed of 204 km/h.

The power and tech­nol­ogy of BMW TwinPower Turbo en­gines, in­tel­li­gent light­weight con­struc­tion and so­phis­ti­cated aero­dy­nam­ics form the ba­sis in the BMW X1 for en­hanced driv­ing plea­sure with re­duced fuel con­sump­tion. Round­ing off this ap­proach are BMW Ef­fi­cien­tDy­nam­ics tech­nolo­gies with en­ergy man­age­ment as stan­dard.

Rugged pro­por­tions, a pow­er­ful pres­ence and dy­namic lines lend the new BMW X1 a com­mand­ing ap­pear­ance and high­light its sta­tus as the youngest mem­ber of the BMW X model fam­ily. The new model has grown in height com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor (+53 mil­lime­tres),

The in­te­rior de­sign of the new BMW X1 com­bines the driver-fo­cused cock­pit de­sign that has be­come a hall­mark of the brand’s mod­els with touches pro­mot­ing au­thor­i­ta­tive, SAV-style driv­ing plea­sure and a con­tem­po­rary pre­mium am­bi­ence. Stan­dard equip­ment in­cludes air con­di­tion­ing, an au­dio sys­tem with USB and AUX-in sock­ets, and the iDrive op­er­at­ing sys­tem, whose 6.5-inch dis­play is in­te­grated into the in­stru­ment panel in free­stand­ing mon­i­tor form.

The el­e­vated seat­ing po­si­tion in the BMW X1 of­fers a range of ben­e­fits. The most ob­vi­ous is that driver and pas­sen­gers en­joy an out­stand­ing all-round view, which si­mul­ta­ne­ously brings added safety in road traf­fic. En­ter­ing and leav­ing also be­comes sub­stan­tially more com­fort­able for ev­ery­one. which has helped in­crease the spa­cious­ness of the in­te­rior. And its sig­nif­i­cantly raised seat­ing po­si­tion (+36 mil­lime­tres at the front, +64 mil­lime­tres at the rear) op­ti­mises the driver’s view out over the road. Knee room in the rear has in­creased by 37 mil­lime­tres in stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion and by up to 66 mil­lime­tres with the op­tion­ally ad­justable rear seat, while the 505-litre boot ca­pac­ity is 85 litres larger than that of its pre­de­ces­sor. Fold­ing down the stan­dard-fit­ted 40:20:40 rear seat back­rest, which can also be spec­i­fied in an­gle-ad­justable form as an op­tion, al­lows load ca­pac­ity to be ex­panded to as much as 1,550 litres. The op­tional fold­ing front pas­sen­ger seat back­rest and a rear seat bench which can slide 13 cen­time­tres fore and aft of­fer ad­di­tional vari­abil­ity.
