X1 is compact crossover with BMW DNA

The 2018 BMW X1 is a crossover built on the Mini platform that’s offered in both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive variants. Visually, the X1 looks much larger than the Mini, due in part to the BMW styling, giving it a much taller profile. But make no mistake, this is not a wagon, it is a true crossover by design. Exterior Flair Featuring the signature twin-kidney grille, the X1 clearly announces itself as a BMW. Sleek, attractive headlamps wrap around the front edges and character lines slide up and over and head toward the rear taillamps. Dark cladding wraps around the rear and touches the low air intakes up front. This crossover SUV comes in one main trim level, with a few options and packages available. It is the lowest end of the BMW lineup and therefore has the least amount of BMW-like standard features. The IIHS gives X1 its best rating, Top Safety Pick Plus. .

The base model X1 is called the sDrive, which features front-wheel-drive and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a starting price of $33, 900. Standard features include synthetic leather upholstery, the iDrive infotainment system with a 6.5-inch screen, automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and a power liftgate. Interior This two-row SUV officially lists seating for five, though I’d say my tester clearly would comfortably seat four adults. Front and rear seating has ample legroom and headroom. My tester featured the optional reclining and sliding rear seats that added to the comfort and convenience in back. Material and fit and finish meet BMW-level expectations. While it is the beginning of the line, the cabin craftsmanship is the same quality as other BMWs, with upscale trimmings such as brushed aluminum and piano black adding to a standard level of refinement. .
