Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Arona is perfectly ok, but Seat found it too easy to leap on the small-crossover bandwagon. They just faxed it in. Get a Leon instead.

Pros
Decent chassis,
good infotainment system and tech

Cons
Updated cabin still a little drab,
trim levels restrict your kit choices

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Looks great
Well equipped across the range
Nice and easy to drive

Cons
Tight on space for rear passengers
Lags behind on boot space
Some cheap-feeling interior bits

BMW has given its smallest crossover a visual freshening for 2020, with larger front grilles, new front and rear bumpers, updated LED lighting elements, and fresh wheel designs. Last year's standard 6.5-inch infotainment display has been scrapped in favor of the previously optional 8.8-inch unit with navigation. BMW revised the eight-speed automatic transmission for 2020, but we haven't driven it yet so we can't confirm BMW's claim that it shifts faster and more smoothly than before.

Pros
Eager powertrain, fun-to-drive nature, big cargo capacity.

Cons
Bar-stool shaped standard seats, slow-reacting infotainment interface, anonymous exterior design.

The 2020 BMW X1 comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Refreshed exterior with a larger grille that mimics those on other BMWs.8.8-inch touchscreen now standard.Some package content has been shuffled.

Pros
Strong and responsive turbo engine
Sharp handling makes it fun to drive
Plenty of rear passenger and cargo room
High-quality materials and fit and finish

Cons
Ride quality gets a little jarring on rough roads
Not particularly quiet on the highway
