Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

BMW has made a number of features standard across the X1 lineup this year, including driver-assistance features such as forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, parking sensors, and automatic high-beam headlamps. Navigation with real-time traffic updates is also now included, as is Apple CarPlay, but for some reason BMW requires an annual fee for that normally free feature after the first year.

Pros
Sweetheart engine and transmission,
athletic chassis,
capacious cargo hold.

Cons
Unsupportive standard seats,
slow infotainment system,
subtle exterior styling.

Good powertrain
Spacious cargo area
Standard automatic emergency braking
Available all-wheel drive...

Cons
...but it’s pricey, like everything else
Styling is aged
Budget materials in lower trims
Why ask more for CarPlay?
