The X1 resides somewhere between hot hatchbacks and curt crossovers. At first glance you might think of a 3-Series wagon, mashed a little shorter and lifted a few inches in height. It has BMW’s “Sport-Activity Vehicle” profile down pat, yet it’s not all that convincing that this isn’t a car; there’s little in the way of design cues to suggest a pavement-free adventure could happen at any moment. The controls are right where existing BMW drivers expect them; but Any 3-Series driver will take command at the X1’s wheel in an instant: the controls are just where BMW drivers expect them. For the rest of us, the very anatomical look is good, but the smattering of dissimilar controls isn’t.

2015 BMW X1 Interior
The 2015 BMW X1 is respectable for safety, but its roster of safety options is nowhere near as impressive as that of BMW’s larger vehicles. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the X1 top ‘good’ tests for frontal, side, and rear impact, as well as a ‘good’ score for roof strength albeit with a potentially worrisome ‘marginal’ score in the new, more rigorous small overlap frontal test. A rearview camera is also missing from the standard-features list.
The X1 does offer a standard USB port; power features; automatic climate control; and HD radio. But a sticker price over $40k is easily within reach if you dip into the options list, which shows a panoramic glass roof; mobile-app connectivity; satellite radio; a cold-weather package; and Harmon Kardon audio.
The sDrive28i comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglamps, automatic wipers, cruise control, automatic climate control, eight-way manual front seats, “SensaTec” premium vinyl upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and an eight-speaker sound system with a CD player, auxiliary audio jack, HD radio and an iPod/USB audio interface. The xDrive28i adds all-wheel drive and hill descent control.
2015 BMW X1 Exterior
Small crossover SUVs are great vehicles for small families. They can ferry a few kids to school every day, or can be loaded up with a bit of extra luggage for a weekend road trip. To satisfy all sorts of families, BMW offers all sorts of crossovers, in various shapes and sizes, aiming to have one for each lifestyle. The 2015 BMW X1 is the smallest SUV in its lineup, and while the X1 doesn’t offer much in the way of utility, it definitely has “sport” covered. It’s an entertaining option that stands out among its rivals.
In addition to those packages there’s a trio of “Design Lines.” The xLine and Sport Line are mostly cosmetic and add items like 18-inch wheels, unique body trim and multi-adjustable sport seats. The M Sport Line features enhancements such as an aero body kit, a sport-tuned suspension, paddle shifters, a higher top speed limiter, multi-adjustable sport seats and cosmetic tweaks such as blackout window frames and unique interior trim.
Not everyone is looking for a fun-to-drive SUV, though, and while its diminutive size may make it nimble, it takes away from the practicality one likely expects from a crossover. With only 15 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, its size is more comparable to a hatchback than a small SUV, and you’ll have a tough time carrying much luggage on the family vacation. Backseat space is limited, too. Given this lack of utility, the X1’s price (especially when loaded up with its many desirable options) may seem rather steep.
2015 BMW X1 Engine
There are two and a half flavors of X1 on the market: excessive turbo-six AWD X1 xDrive35i, versatile, turbo-four AWD xDrive28i, and base turbo-four RWD sDrive28i.
If you’re feeling sporty, the xDrive35i model will run from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds to a top speed of 130 mph. However, we prefer the four-cylinder, especially with all-wheel drive, which can move from 0-60 is a surprising 6.2 seconds.
The rear-drive X1 sDrive28i and all-wheel-drive xDrive28i are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 240 hp and 260 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic is standard, as is a stop-start system that shuts off the engine when stopped to save fuel. EPA-estimated fuel economy is impressive at 27 mpg combined (23 city/34 highway) for the sDrive and 26 mpg combined (22 city/32 highway) for the xDrive.
While we haven’t driven a rear-wheel-drive X1 and thus can’t comment on its electric power steering, the hydraulic systems in the xDrive versions are excellent. It’s not particularly quick, but it’s a pleasure to wind and unwind. If there’s one standout impression of the X1’s performance, it’s of fluidity at speed–not something that crossovers typically excel at.
The last X1 we fully tested, a X1 xDrive28i, came equipped with a Sport package including 18-inch wheels and tires, Servotronic variable-ratio steering, but without the M Sport Package and Performance Control. The package hasn’t been as well-reviewed as we’d expected, with understeer a big complaint–as much at issue as the base X1’s electric power steering. And the brakes pour out more pedal feel than the entire lineups of some automakers from half a world away.
