Some of the greatest minds have asked themselves questions that seem to have no answers. What is the meaning of life? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Is the BMW X1 an SUV or an oversized sports car? At long last, we can answer at least one of these!
Best of Both Worlds
Yes. The BMW X1 is a luxury subcompact SUV, more commonly called a crossover. A crossover provides car-like acceleration and handling and combines this with SUV-like passenger room and cargo space.
It’s the first of BMW’s X series, which features six different crossovers. Some lean more toward coupe-like designs, and some lean further toward SUV size. The X1 is notable for its energetic performance and agile handling.
The 2018 BMW X1 interior is sleek and the seats are spacious. Many crossovers try to look like sports cars instead of perform like them, forcing whoever’s in the back seat to scrunch up in order to fit. When BMW designed crossovers, this was one of the first elements to be thrown out. If you’re going to sit 5, then realistically make the room for them to be comfortable. The X1 does this in spades. Passengers in the back have plenty of room to stretch.
The cargo capacity also leads its class. This is a crossover you’re going to be able to use for any trip. Excellent mileage (23 mpg city/32 mpg highway) means you can drive for short errands or long vacations in comfort. Safety ratings for the X1 were already incredibly high, but BMW didn’t rest on its laurels – the 2018 version has improvements that include rearview camera standard.
Available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive, a BMW X1 lease allows you to drive one of the most adaptable vehicles on the road.
Yes, the BMW X1 is a crossover SUV, rethought and re-imagined to give you access to the best of an SUV’s capabilities and a sports car’s performance and efficiency.
