Some may question why the X1 costs more than larger crossover SUVs like the Mazda CX-5, but you could argue the BMW has a more premium image. It easily beats the more crossover-led Mercedes GLA for space and also highlights the age of the Audi Q3. This mid-spec Sport with BMW’s 188bhp 2.0-litre diesel is a tempting choice, too, offering decent running costs that don’t break the bank. Just steer clear of the pricey options list.

Funnily enough, this is also the first time we re getting a look at the M Sport styling kit. It s mostly business as usual, with a more aggressive front fascia (complete with large air intakes), body-coloured side mouldings, 18-inch M light alloy wheels (19-inch items optional) and unique Estoril Blue paint option, although the rear bumper differs a little from tradition with a large grey insert and a body-coloured diffuser.
The X1 is the cheapest 4x4 it offers, and in many ways, it's a good buy. If you want a high riding position and the chance to say you own a BMW, the X1 is an affordable way to get into the scene, but for most 4x4 purists, the X1 just won't cut the mustard. For one, it's a city 4x4. Its off-road capabilities are anything but impressive, and it would much rather stick to asphalt than hit the grass.
Depending on how you look at it, the X1 is either the smallest SUV in the BMW range or the biggest road car. Straddling the line between these two, it manages to fit in both functional practicality, and a premium driving experience. Looks-wise it tends towards to the SUV - despite being noticeably compact - but on the road it shares more with a four door saloon, and so is vibrant and dynamic to drive, handling well and remaining comfortable and refined at high speeds. To buy it might not be the most affordable, but good fuel efficiency means that it is economic to run, and, with a solid BMW engine, reliability is ensured.
BMW BMW's smallest SUV, the X1, is back, sporting all-new looks and the promise of a much more engaging drive. AOL Cars headed to Germany to see if it delivers. What is it? This is the totally revised BMW X1. Gone are the weird looks of the last model - which managed to clock up 730,000 sales around the world - and in comes a fresh, chunky design that makes it look like a shrink-wrapped X5, but in a good way. One in 10 BMWs sold was an X1 at the height of its success and it was continually in the top three most popular cars sold by the manufacturer, so this new model has a lot to live up to. Aimed at "young, sporty" buyers, the maker believes this is a lifestyle vehicle that can be used every day. It's taller and wider than the model it replaces, has a higher seating position, but has shrunk by 1.5cm in length. What's under the bonnet? There is one petrol engine and three diesel options. The former xDrive20i has 190bhp, 280Nm of torque and can hit 62mph in 7.4 seconds. Emissions are 146g/km and it'll return 44.8mpg. Diesels come in 18d, 20d and 25d variants. The sDrive18d is front wheel drive only, the latter two four-wheel drive like the petrol. We'd pick the
BMW has revealed its facelifted X1 crossover. The updates include revised exterior styling, a new all-diesel range of engines and new Sport and xLine trims. As far as styling changes go, the X1 features new LED headlights, a lower front bumper and new colour and alloy wheel choices. All of the engines in the 2012 X1 are 2-litre 4-cylinder turbodiesel units, available in various states of tune. The base model in the X1 range is the rear-wheel drive sDrive18d, which puts out 141bhp and 236lb ft, while the flagship xDrive25d features four-wheel drive and a 215bhp and 354lb ft tune of the 2-litre. This is enough to hustle it from 0-62mph in 6.8sec and onto a 142mph top speed. The car’s performance is coupled with decent economy, with a claimed 51.4mpg and 145g/km CO2 emissions. The new Sport and xLine models sit between the entry-level SE and range-topping M-Sport specification, both featuring styling modifications inside and out. The Sport features a dark chrome exhaust, sports steering wheel and 17in wheels, whie the xLine boasts 18in alloys and features chrome finishes on the exhaust and front grille. Prices for the 2012 BMW X1 start at £24,660 for the sDrive18d and rise to £31,860 for the xDrive25d.
It’s a relatively compact car still so the X1 clearly sits on the first step of BMW’s X models but there have been significant changes to its appearance. Considerably shorter but taller and wider than before, the X1 now carries more authority than before, and looks like a much closer relation to the bigger X3 and X5 models. It wears the bolder, larger kidney grille of the bigger models and gives off quality vibes, which is exactly what will attract the majority of potential buyers.
The current 2016 X1 sits on the same platform as the 3 series model, although the car is both shorter and taller than the 3 series, it can be ordered either as an sDrive car which has rear wheel drive (unusual for a small 4x4 model) or with xDrive which has front wheel drive.

From one of the least practical cars of its kind the X1 is now one of the most. The new, taller body has markedly improved cabin headroom. From the driver’s position it feels low for a crossover, but the driving position still feels higher than those of many rivals. High quality materials and finish create a rich ambience that’s at least a match for its rivals. A 6.5in multimedia system with sat-nav and an iDrive controller is standard.
Inside, the BMW X1 sets the bar high for its rivals in terms of refinement. Designed with driver in mind and constructed of a wealth of sumptuous and robust materials, BMW have provided a top-quality look and feel in the cabin. Practicality levels for this vehicle are high and the interior is impressively spacious. Luggage capacity is generous and thanks to long and wide dimensions, loading up is rarely taxing.

The rugged-looking crossover, which arrives in UK showrooms in the autumn, has been comprehensively re-engineered using the lighter, more versatile UKL platform already seen on BMW stablemates including the Gran Tourer. The chief benefits of this, plus a new, space-saving, transverse engine layout, are a longer roofline, shorter bonnet, improved safety protection, and more space for passengers and luggage.
The new 2016 BMW X1 has grown quite a bit over the previous model, sprouting 53 millimeters in height, with a 36 millimeter raise in the front seating position, to give the X1 a more commanding view of the road. This increase in size, and switch to front-wheel drive architecture, has also given the X1 better interior space, to the tune of 37 millimeters more rear knee room and 85 liters more cargo space, bringing the total to 505 liters. With the rear seats folded down, the X1 has 1,550 liters of cargo space.
Working seamlessly in tandem with two other big lorries, the trio straddled for a number of miles the white lines across four lanes of motorway. The Waitrose lorry played the key role of 'wing man' across the two outside lanes. Their object was clear — to stop any cars overtaking any of them in the three outer lanes on the long run up to the cones. I have to say, their unofficial rolling road blockade worked a treat — no one got past. My, how those BMW drivers stuck behind them fumed.
The X1 is a sporty SUV with a luxury twist. The interior is spacious and well laid out. The back will sit 3 people comfortably, still leaving room to move around. With xDrive proficiencies you can go off road like SUV's should do and perform to the best of their capabilities. You have a brilliant amount of technology in the car, that of which you would find in the higher price BMW models. The X1 can be used for everyday use, it has a large boot for the weekly shop or you can stick the dog in the back and it'll still have plenty of room to walk around too. Mainly the X1 looks the real deal.
: “The BMW X1 is a compact crossover between a small hatchback and a large executive saloon. A higher body and more practical interior help make this BMW 1 Series more desirable. Factor in its good handling, powerful engines and low emissions and you have an impressive overall package. The X1 is more business-like to drive than its bigger brothers, the X3 and X5, but if you go for the diesel engines you get a good mix of economy and performance that easily rivals anything on offer among the MINI Countryman, Audi Q3, Volkswagen Tiguan or Ranger Rover Evoque.
