The build page for the 2013 BMW X1 is now live on BMWUSA.com and prospective buyers can now price out their ideal compact luxury sport ute with a price starting at just $31,545 for the rear wheel drive models and an entry price of $33,245 for all wheel drive models.

The 2013 BMW X1 is offered in three basic trimlines – the rear wheel drive sDrive28i, the xDrive 28i and the xDrive 35i. The sDrive28i and xDrive 28i are both equipped with a 240 horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an advanced 8-speed automatic transmission with manual shift controls with the sDrive model offering rear wheel drive while the xDrive comes with BMW’s advanced all wheel drive system. The xDrive35i is powered by a 300 horsepower, twin turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and an advanced all wheel drive system.

When you begin building your 2013 BMW X1, you are first asked to pick between the trim basic trimlines listed above. Once you select the basic trimline, you are taken to another screen where you are instructed to pick between one of four configurations for the model in question. In addition to a base package for each trimline, the three BMW X1 models can be upfitted with the X Line, Sport Line or M Sport Line packages. These three upgrade packages add the same features to the 2013 X1, regardless of which drivetrain configuration is selected and prices remain the same, whether these packages are applied to the BMW X1 sDrive28i, xDrive28i or xDrive35i.

- 2013 BMW X1 X Line adds 18” light alloy Y-spoke wheels wrapped in all season run flat tires, a variety of leather/ leathette interior finishes and unique interior hard trim available in either high gloss dark copper or matte wood. The X Line also adds$1,900 to the bottom line of the 2013 BMW X1.

- 2013 BMW X1 Sport Line package adds double spoke 18” alloy wheels fitted with all season run flat tires, black side mirror caps, a variety of leather/leatherette interior layouts, 8-way power adjustable sport seats with driver’s seat memory, and interior hard trim available in either gloss black or brushed aluminum. This package also adds $1,900 to the base price of each of the three 2013 X1 trimlines.

- 2013 BMW X1 M Sport Line adds similar double spoke 18” alloy wheels fitted with all season run flat tires to those found on the Sport Line, a sport tuned suspension system, gloss black roof rails, an aerodynamics package, 8-way power adjustable sport seats with driver’s seat memory, a 3-spoke M Sport steering wheel with paddle shifters, an anthracite headliner, M door sills, and the buyers choice of either a light wood trim or dark aluminum trim. This package adds $3,000 to the base price of the 2013 X1 sDrive28i and xDrive28i while the M Sport Package for the xDrvie35i is only $2,500 extra.

Once you have chosen which of the available trimlines for the 2013 BMW X1 you prefer as well as the upgrade package that you want, the configurator is very much like any other new model build page.
