2023 BMW X1 configurator goes live in the EU, do your best or worse and show us your build

Shortly after the latest generation BMW X1 was unveiled, the German automaker released the official configurator for the SUV.

The configurator reflects the available engines offered in Germany. You can choose between the iX sDrive18i, xDrive23i, sDrive18d and xDrive23d variants. Depending on the model you choose, the SUV can be equipped with xLine and M Sport packages, the latter of which adds a plethora of features, including new two-tone 18-inch wheels, the Connected Package Professional, Driving Assistant, M Shadow Line package and various other bells and whistles and features.

A wide variety of color options are also available through the configurator. We chose Phytonic Blue when configuring our perfect X1, but there are a number of other standout colors available, including two shades of green and the Utah Orange Metallic that graced the model featured in BMW’s official press photos of the new SUV.

Various interior configurations are offered. We especially love the €700 ($753) option that combines black and red leather. Cream and dark brown trims are also available.

BMW will start selling the 2023 X1 in the US in the fourth quarter of this year, meaning the local configurator should be released in the coming months. While European customers have a plethora of engine options on hand, all X1 models sold in the US will come in xDrive28i trim, equipped with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder producing 241 horsepower between 4,500 and 6,500 rpm and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque between 1,500 and 4,000 rpm. This engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that helps the X1 reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.2 seconds.
