KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen - Updated Date: 5/2/2014

The 2015 X1 is the smallest among BMW's expanding line of X model crossover SUVs, slotting below the more established X3 and X5 and the new X4. Starting just under $32,000, the 5-passenger X1 is also the least-expensive way to get into a new BMW – and not much more than mainstream compact SUVs such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV. Though it's the baby of the family, the X1 retains BMW's performance-meets-luxury persona, plus good fuel economy. Available in rear-drive or all-wheel drive and endowed with the same turbocharged 4- or 6-cylinder engines as its larger siblings, the X1 has spry acceleration and BMW's renowned dynamic handling that set it apart from rivals like the Mercedes-Benz GLK, Acura RDX and Buick Encore.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want a small 5-passenger SUV that offers European badge appeal and more than just lip service to road-going performance, the X1 is a tempting choice. Models equipped with the 4-cylinder are surprisingly fuel-efficient, too.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you have or plan to have a growing family, the X1 may be too small. The X3 or X5 offer more room, as does the Acura RDX, Lexus RX or Infiniti's 3-row JX. If towing is a priority, look to the Audi Q5 and its 4,400-pound rating.

What's New for 2015

Still fresh from its debut two years ago, there are no major changes for the 2015 BMW X1 crossover SUV.

Driving It Driving Impressions

BMW's X models have always been more about performance on pavement than pounding dirt, and the X1 is no different. In fact, because of its diminutive size and lighter weight, the 2015 X1 feels even more agile than its larger X siblings. 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. Despite its nimble handling, the X1 is commendably comfortable on the open road. Whether scooting around the city or hauling down the highway, power delivery is excellent with either the feisty 4-cylinder that's mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission or the stout 6-cylinder engine that uses a 6-speed. All-wheel-drive models are competent in the snow, but venturing far off the beaten path isn't the X1's strength.

Favorite Features

This small engine finds duty in BMWs as large at the 5-Series, and it's easy to see why: It packs surprising power and efficiency. With the help of turbocharging and direct-injection technology, it boasts 240 horsepower and fuel economy of up to 34 mpg.

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.
