The BMW X1 is a premium small SUV that is practical, cheap to run and has attractive German styling. All models come with satellite navigation as standard which is an otherwise expensive option for most other manufacturers. The BMW X1 is the starter model in the BMW X range. The X1 is a sporty SUV with luxury qualities giving you an SUV, sports car and a luxury car all in one. The X1 is the affordable option but it has the technology that you'd find in some of the higher models.
The BMW X1 comes as a petrol or diesel engine car. The X1 has a 218 bhp engine with an 8-speed semi-automatic gearbox, allowing speeds of 127 mph and returning 51.4 miles to the gallon. The X1 has multiple trims starting with the SE, Sport, xLine and M Sport. You also have the option to choose the xDrive 4 wheel drive system too.
The X1 is a sporty SUV with a luxury twist perfect for both personal and business lease. The interior is spacious and well laid out. The back will sit 3 people comfortably, still leaving room to move around. With xDrive proficiencies you can go off-road like SUV's should do and perform to the best of their capabilities. You have a brilliant amount of technology in the car, that of which you would find in the higher price BMW models. The X1 can be used for everyday use, it has a large boot for the weekly shop or you can stick the dog in the back and it'll still have plenty of room to walk around.
The X1 is the starter in the X range but it doesn't feel cheap. It feels luxurious, it feels like an expensive car should and with the tech you get inside you certainly get the higher model gadgets too. Most of all this is a car that can fit a family and a dog or luggage. It can perform the daily run to work and get you from A to B no problems. When you need a little extra power, the sporty feel kicks in and this is when the X1 shines with that 8-speed gearbox and 218 bhp engine.
Rivals to consider: Mercedes GLA, Audi Q3.
