2023 BMW X1 Revealed As Upcoming 2023 Lincoln Corsair Rival

The 2023 Lincoln Corsair is set to undergo a refresh previewed by a number of prototypes spotted by Ford Authority spies in recent months, including a possible hybrid variant and even one with a Kanye West sticker on the back window. Regardless, the Corsair has its fair share of rivals in the red hot luxury C-segment crossover market, including the all-new Alfa Romeo Tonale. Now, it’s getting another updated rival in the form of the all-new, third-generation 2023 BMW X1.

The 2023 BMW X1 is longer, taller, and wider than its predecessor, and has a longer wheelbase to boot, along with fresh but familiar exterior styling. An M-Sport package is available for those that prefer a more aggressive, sportier design with its own unique styling touches, shift paddles, sport seats, an aero kit, and an M steering wheel, while wheel choices encompass 18-, 19-, and 20-inch units, and adaptive dampers are optional as well.

As was the case with the previous model, the 2023 BMW X1 comes equipped with the automaker’s turbocharged 2.0L I-4 powerplant producing 241 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.

Inside the cabin, the new X1 features a curved display with a 10.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 10.7-inch infotainment screen, with a host of standard features including navigation, a host of driver-assist features, and a power tailgate, while a bevy of optional goodies include an XLine design package, a premium package, a convenience package, a heated steering wheel, and heated seats.

The 2023 BMW X1 is scheduled to launch in the U.S. later this year with a staring price of $39,595, while the sleeker X2 will follow suit shortly thereafter.
