Standard all-wheel drive
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Small rear seats
Poor cargo capacity

The 2018 BMW X4 xDrive28i is already a potent little performer and will satisfy the majority of drivers. Almost all of the features from the range-topping M40i are available as options, so you won't be missing much other than the overabundance of power.

PROS
Powerful yet efficient engine choices
Interior quality well represents the luxury class
Ride quality is smooth yet handling is sporty

CONS
Rearward visibility is compromised
Cargo capacity is much smaller than rivals
Limited rear-seat space

The 2018 BMW X4 takes today’s trend toward swoopier SUVs and packages it with a roundel up front. It’s entertaining and a looker, but not all that practical.

Pros
Compelling shape
Exciting performance from M40i
Well-equipped at base trim level
Excellent 8-speed automatic

Cons
Pricey at more than $48,000 to start
$2,000 for CarPlay? Really?
Rear seat head room is compromised
Cargo area is oddly shaped

By: 
thecarconnection.com

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.

By:

The 2019 BMW X1 crossover is the right shape and the right price for entry luxury buyers willing to overlook some flaws.

pros
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?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

PROS
Strong and responsive turbo engine
Sharp handling makes it fun to drive

High-quality materials and fit and finish

Standard sport suspension may be jarring on rough roads
Not particularly quiet on the highway
