The most potent incarnation of the 4-cylinder petrol unit from the latest generation delivers the raw power that the new BMW X1 M35i xDrive turns into captivating performance. Among the 2.0-litre unit’s M specific highlights are a new, extremely robust crankshaft drive, an optimised system of oil supply for the pistons with cooling channels, and main bearing shells and caps carried over from the latest-generation 6-cylinder in-line petrol engine.

Its M TwinPower Turbo technology has been upgraded by increasing the performance of the turbocharging system and indirect charge air cooling at the same time as introducing dual injection for mixture preparation as a function of load point. It is also equipped with VANOS variable camshaft timing with optimised oil supply for the actuator and VALVETRONIC fully variable valve timing. The engine generates its peak torque of 400 Nm is on tap from 2,000 up to 4,500 rpm. The spirited power delivery is accompanied by an emotionally rich soundtrack from the M specific exhaust system with two pairs of twin tailpipes.

7-speed Steptronic transmission.

The 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double-clutch stands out with its ultra-sharp shift action. Shift paddles on the steering wheel allow quick manual interventions in the gear selection process. The M Sport Boost function is also available for exceptionally rapid bursts of speed. Here, all the powertrain and chassis systems are switched to their sportiest setting when the driver pulls on the left-hand shift paddle for at least one second.

Adaptive M Suspension.

The 15 millimetre lowered Adaptive M suspension can be electrically adjusted at any time to suit the road and driving conditions. The suspension characteristics can be adjusted to enable your preferred driving style at the time – from comfortable to athletic with markedly agile handling.

BMW xDrive.

The BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system ensures that drive power is distributed between the front and rear wheels as required in any situation. The system is interlinked with the chassis control tech at all times. A hang-on clutch with electro-hydraulic control allows drive torque to be directed to the rear wheels as well in a matter of a few milliseconds, providing significantly greater traction, directional stability and sporting prowess in the M mould.

Limited-slip differential.

The all-wheel-drive system is assisted in its task by the mechanical limited-slip differential built into the transmission. This serves to limit the difference in speed between the front wheels. With a locking factor of up to 26 percent, it increases traction over loose terrain or in adverse weather conditions at the same time as boosting agility and handling dynamics when taking corners at speed.

Integrated braking system.

The integrated braking system fitted in the new BMW X1 M35i xDrive generates a degree of stopping power that is matched exactly to the driver’s inputs, while also providing excellent feedback via the brake pedal. It brings together the brake activation, brake booster and braking control functions within a compact module, while an electric actuator is used to trigger the required brake pressure.

It adds M high-gloss Shadowline exterior trim with extended elements and M lights Shadowline to the car’s already expressive exterior design. Also included are the M Compound brakes with grey callipers*³, plus M Sport seats and M seat belts.
