To be unveiled this week at the 2012 New York Auto Show, the U.S. edition of the X1 compact crossover will be offered initially in three versions — the X1 sDrive28i, the X1 xDrive28i ($33,245) and the X1 xDrive35i ($39,345). All prices include an $895 shipping charge.

The rear-wheel-drive X1 sDrive28i and all-wheel-drive X1 xDrive28i share a 240-horsepower twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4engine, while the range-topping X1 xDrive35i features a 300-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-6. All engines get auto stop-start and automatic transmission.

Introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, the X1 went on sale across Europe in 2010 and originally was scheduled to reach U.S. dealers in late 2010. But the German automaker, citing strong European sales and a weak dollar-euro exchange rate, last year put the U.S. launch of the X1 on indefinite hold, electing eventually to bring the vehicle here as part of a midcycle freshening for 2013.

Assembled in Leipzig, Germany, the X1 will be BMW's smallest crossover in a lineup that now includes the X3, the X5 and the X6 and will be expanded further in 2014 with the addition of the sporty X4.

For model year 2013, the X1 gets a mild exterior makeover (compared with the current European model), with new headlamps and a revised rear fascia among the more visible changes. In the cabin, the subtle eyelift includes a bit more chrome and some gloss black trim.
