Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pleasant to drive and built to a price, the 2017 BMW X1 is a mainstream subcompact crossover that is pleasant to drive but lacks the brand's "ultimate driving machine" performance.
The 2017 BMW X1 sits apart from other BMWs. With its front-wheel-drive, Mini-sourced platform, is the brand's entry-level subcompact crossover and a more mainstream, less passionate vehicle than you would expect from BMW. It is offered as the front-drive sDrive28i and the all-wheel-drive xDrive28i, the former added for 2017.

Pros
Crossover utility
Gutsy turbo 4-cylinder
Good rear-seat space
Fairly thrifty fuel economy
Competitive price of entry

Cons
Prices climb quickly with options
Some cost-cutting in interior trim
Driver assists cost extra
Poor front seats

The BMW X1 offers shoppers in the compact luxury crossover category an intriguing blend of performance, comfort and utility. If you're looking for something that cleverly blurs the line between a low-slung sedan and a high-riding SUV, the X1 is worth a test drive.
The 2017 X1 is BMW's smallest and most affordable utility vehicle, yet it offers a surprising amount of passenger and cargo space. It delivers trademark BMW quality inside and out, and despite having less power than earlier versions, the X1 still accelerates and handles better than most in its class.

Pros
Strong performance from its turbocharged engine
One of the best-handling compact luxury crossovers you're going to find
More rear passenger and cargo room than most other competitors
High-level interior fit, finish and materials

Cons
Standard sport suspension can be jarring on rough roads
Steering feels less precise than some of BMW's sport sedans.
