The X1 18d sold since 07/2012 production has the same engine as the other 4 cylinder turbodiesels, except at the medium level of output. It uses the N47 engine which has the variable geometry turbocharger but you don't actually get a bi-turbo until the 23d version. BMW uses the "TwinPower" or whatever nomenclature more as a marketing name (like EcoBoost for Ford).
