The new BMW X1 (E84 model code) should be launching here in Malaysia very very soon as you can already be seen around Malaysian roads if you just know where to look. Cyberjaya and Putrajaya are decent choices for a higher chance of getting to see it on the road.
An example is the photo above sent in by reader apexg2. The X1 was at JPJ Putrajaya, probably as part as of the Malaysian vehicle Type Approval process necessary for all CBU vehicles in Malaysia. The X1 will most likely be CBU, but who knows, if Malaysian buy them in decent volume like the 3 and the 5 it might become CKD?
I scoured various online classifieds for any indication of X1 prices and found RM26x,xxx for the sDrive18i and RM29x,xxx for the xDrive20d model. The sDrive model is rear wheel drive while the xDrive is all wheel drive. Malaysians looking for compact luxury SUVs have a new choice now other than the usual suspects of the Tiguan, Q5 and XC60.
Look after the jump for some material, videos and photos of the X1.
