The BMW Concept X1 which was unvealed at the Paris Motor Shownow in 2008 became the X1 and is the smallest range in BMW’s line-up.
Now in its second generation since 2016, the X1 is built off same UKL platform as the Mini Crossover and when comparing the two cousins, one sees the similarity in basic proportions. In some markets, front-wheel-drive was offered in addition to all-wheel drive. For 2018, a rearview camera is added as standard equipment, and some optional packages have changed.
The BMW X1 uses a turbocharged 220hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and is mated to a paddle-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission.
While BMW pitches the model as a premium compact, the car’s dashboard looks smart with its big round gauges, but the standard interior trim is not so cool. The front seats are inadequate in thigh bolstering and thin on back support. The back seats are comfortable, however. There’s good headroom and generous legroom in the rear for a subcompact, although not enough width back there for three adults. The seats are easy to climb in and out of, thanks to wide door openings. There is an available rear seat that reclines and slides rearward by five inches and cargo space is good for a subcompact crossover.
As expected the driving Dynamic Control modes are Sport, Comfort, and Eco Pro, which change the sensitivity of the steering, throttle, and transmission are kitted to the model. BMW’s Xdrive AWD is available in this model.
