About BMW X1

BMW’s 2017 X1 compact-luxury SUV (BMW likes to call it an SAV, short for Sports Activity Vehicle) may be the company’s smallest offering, but it is no less luxurious or capable than its larger X3 and X5 siblings. Blending the performance characteristics of a BMW 3 Series with the high ride height and all-wheel-drive (AWD) abilities of an SUV, the X1 is easily cross-shopped with a number of vehicles including the Buick Encore, Infiniti QX30, Lexus NX and Mercedes-Benz GLA. With available AWD and a host of modern driver-assist system, the X1 is all about safely having fun. But it’s the little SUV’s brutish exterior and 228-horsepower engine that BMW hopes will attract younger buyers to the family.

"I traded in my 2013 X1 on the 2016 X1 after the first drive. The 2013 was a good vehicle, but it had a few short comings. The redesigned 2016 X1 takes care of all them and then some. I looked other SUVs in this price range. I found it quieter. The driving position and the visibility better. It has more interior room. Both the interior and exterior design is great in my opinion. It handles well and has plenty of power for any real world driving need. The fuel economy is excellent with combined driving of 29 mpg. Looking forward to a long road trip in this X1"

"I think my 2016 is so cute. Leasing for 36 months, then I think I will lease a new one. It rides smooth, had a nice first summer driving it. Now Winter is on it's way, I hope it shows me what it can do in the snow."
