Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A very competitive posh crossover, but it fumbles some of Audi's traditional strengths.

Pros
Lots of equipment and tech,
practical,
striking to look at

Cons
The powertrains,
HMI and materials aren't as polished as Audi's norm

BMW has made very few changes to the X1 for 2021: SiriusXM satellite radio is now standard, and LED fog lamps are no longer part of the optional Convenience or Premium packages. Also, BMW won't let customers order the sports seats as a standalone option anymore. You have to select the M Sport pack if you want them.

Pros
Peppy turbo four,
crisp handling,
practical interior.

Cons
Unsupportive standard front seats,
aging infotainment interface,
bland styling.

The 2021 BMW X1 is an appealing crossover with hatchback moves, but keep a lid on options for the better value.

Pros
Turbocharged punch
Nimble around-town handling
Good transmission
Comfy front seats
Reasonably large cargo area

Cons
Stodgy vs. expressive rivals
Rear-seat leg room
Infotainment’s clunky controller
Chintzy interior bits
Can get expensive
