Interior: High-Quality Materials, Sophisticated Colors
The modifications to the design of the new BMW X1 interior create an even more

the cockpit design.
High-quality electroplated trim surrounding for the gearshift lever and center
console cupholders, a chrome strip for the headlight switch and chrome touches
for the side edging of the Control Display - when the optional navigation system
is specified - all add the finishing touches to the interior's premium feel.
Plus, the air vent surrounds are given a high-gloss black surface.
