BMW has introduced its latest variant of the X1 lineup. Called the sDrive20d M Sport, the SUV has bee priced at Rs 41.50 lakh, ex-showroom. The new SUV sits below the top-spec X1 xDrive20d M Sport which is priced at Rs 44.50 lakh in the Indian market.The latest variant sDrive20d is completely identical to the top-spec variant in terms of safety kit, visual cues on the interior and the exterior. However, as the name suggests, the sDrive does not get BMW’s all-wheel-drive (AWD) system which is available on the xDrive20d M Sport.The sDrive20d M Sport is powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission sending power to the front wheels. The configuration is similar to the xLine and Expedition variants which sits on a lower-spec shelf on the X1 range.The sDrive other than the x-badge and the missing AWD system also gets a 6.5-inch infotainment screen as compared to the 8.8-inch unit on the xDrive. The sDrive also misses out on the head-up display system.In the Indian car market, the BMW X1 goes head-on with the Mercedes GLA (Rs 34.38-Rs 38.64 lakh), the Audi Q3 (Rs 34.73-Rs 42.88 lakh), and the recently launched Volvo XC40 (Rs 39.90-Rs 43.90 lakh). The Merc GLA and the Audi Q3 get AWD systems on the top-spec variant, like the X1. However, the XC40 gets all-wheel-drive as standard on all the variants.
