KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 4/29/2013


The 2014 X1 is BMW's smallest crossover SUV, slotting below the X3 in the luxury automaker's lineup. The X1 is also the least expensive of BMW's vehicles. With a starting price just shy of $31,000, the X1 is not substantially more than mainstream players in this segment such as the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape, and comes in below slightly larger premium rivals like the Mercedes-Benz GLK and Acura RDX. Powered by the same turbocharged 4- or 6-cylinder engines as the larger X3, the X1 is a joy to drive. With quick acceleration, nimble handling, the choice or rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel drive and laudable fuel-efficiency to boot, the X1 packs a lot of fun and versatility into a tidy package.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want a compact SUV with fine amenities and European badge appeal, the 2014 X1 is an excellent choice. Drivers who appreciate the ability to zip through traffic and past gas stations will find an ideal mate in BMW's smallest hauler.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Need room for more than five passengers or require extra real estate for child seats and the strollers that go with them? The X1 might be too small. Its larger X3 and X5 brothers would be happy to win you over, as would Acura's RDX, Cadillac's SRX, or Infiniti's 3-row JX.

What's New for 2014

Since it was just introduced to the U.S. last year, there are no major changes to the BMW X1 for 2014.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The X1 feels more like a sports sedan than some lumbering SUV. Despite its taller ride height and added functionality, the X1 glistens with BMW's precision driving dynamics. That the X1 can return as much fun as it does while also obtaining highway fuel economy in the low-30-mpg range is automotive icing on the cake. As agile as the X1 is in corners, it's also commendably comfortable on the highway. There's nothing base about its base 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which can launch the X1 to 60 mph in the mid-6-second range. Opt for the turbo 6-cylinder, and the X1 blasts from zero to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds.

Favorite Features

2.0-LITER TURBOCHARGED ENGINE
This potent little mill is a superb example of modern-day power and efficiency. With the help of turbocharging and direct-injection technology, it boasts plenty of power (240 horsepower, to be exact), and high fuel economy (up to 34 mpg).

ULTIMATE PACKAGE
Suitable for The Ultimate Driving Machine, this feature-laden pack bundles biggies like a navigation system and panoramic moonroof with smaller but thoughtful touches such as ambient lighting hidden in the outer door handles and a voice-command feature that lets you record up to five minutes of spoken notes.
