BMW X1 Car Review
One of the best handling crossovers on the road
BMW have done a great job in stretching the appeal of the brand with smaller more affordable models like the X1.
The X1 is the entry model for BMW’s ‘X’ SUV line-up, a small compact crossover that’s instantly recognisable as a Beemer from the front. From the side and rear the X1 looks a bit dumpy but on the road it drives with the precision and sharp handing feel of a BMW. You will also like the strong economy from the responsive 2.0 litre diesel engine, that returns around 50 mpg plus.
The inside is laid out just like a BMW although some of the plastics don’t have the usual high quality you’d expect, until you get the top of the range X Line and M Sport versions. The cabin is fine if you are sitting in the front, but space is tight in the rear for adults but okay for kids with a reasonable 420 litres of boot space that jumps to 1350 litres with the back seats down.
