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.

The 2017 BMW X1 ranks 1 out of 5 Luxury Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 BMW X1 finishes near the top of our luxury subcompact rankings because of its good performance, upscale and spacious interior, and outstanding cargo space for the class.

Pros
Quick acceleration
Athletic handling
Roomy back seat
Outstanding cargo capacity

Cons
No standard driver assistance features

The 2018 BMW M3 Is a sport sedan icon that offers track-ready performance and relatively comfortable seating for four, but it is losing its lead to a group of hungry contenders.

Pros
Superlative performance
Four (relatively) useful seats
Menacing looks
Available carbon ceramic brakes are great...

Cons
...but very expensive
Everything costs more, unless you like white and black cloth
Not fuel efficient
A somewhat digital feel

By: 
thecarconnection.com

What we really love about the M3, though, is that it retains its civility in spite of the performance upgrades. The ride quality remains comfortable thanks to adaptive dampers, the seats are supportive yet comfortable enough for long road trips, and the back seat and trunk are spacious. While there are higher-performing competitors, and more luxurious ones, few blend both traits with the fluidity of the 2018 BMW M3.

PROS
Agile handling without a penalizing ride quality
Upscale, well-equipped interior with room for four adults
Powerful brakes

CONS
Steering is less lively than in competitors
Other sport sedans sound better, go faster

By: 
edmunds.com

"The BMW M3 is a legendary name among supersaloons, but while the latest version is good, its rivals have caught up"

PROS
Practical four-door body
Aggressive looks
Fun to drive

CONS
Pricey to buy and run
No longer sounds as exciting
Some rivals are better to drive
