The BMW X1 is a capable off-road vehicle that comes in a compact package, making it just as ideal for busy families as drivers that possess a sense of adventure. This mini-SUV’s excellent build quality and desirable good looks also ensure that it stands out from its competitors.
The rugged X1 boasts an elevated ride height that provides enhanced ground clearance, and BMW’s DNA is instantly discernible and ever-present throughout. For instance, the front fascia is distinguished by the marque’s signature dual-kidney grille and halo-style headlamps. The flanks, meanwhile, feature the distinctive 'Hofmeister kink', which seamlessly continues the line of the car’s C-pillar to the opening edges of its rear doors. Take a look inside to discover a spacious, well-appointed and comfortable five-seat cabin, as well as a 505-litre boot space that expands to 1,550 litres with rear seats folded.
With its long wheelbase, complete with short overhangs, the X1 is an agile vehicle – while an all-wheel-drive system ensures that the vehicle offers outstanding levels of grip. This crossover can be selected with a compact three-cylinder petrol engine that makes it perfect for inner-city driving. A range of four-cylinder turbo-powered diesel units are available too, each delivering extra torque. All options offer noteworthy efficiency, especially models that are installed with a 2.0-litre 150bhp diesel engine, which returns as much as 61.4mpg and produces CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km.
The X1 features a minimum six-speaker sound system that includes DAB radio and an AM/FM tuner. Also fitted as standard is a satellite navigation system, which is operated via a minimum-size 8.8-inch display, and offers voice control, real-time traffic updates and more. The X1 has been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating and features a reinforced passenger cell that provides considerable impact protection. Driver aids include Electronic Stability Control, which helps the car to enjoy all-weather traction.
