BMW X1 Overview
This compact, five-seat SUV is BMW's least expensive model, and its evident throughout. Ride comfort is on the stiff side. Noise isolation and interior quality are a notch below BMW's usual standards. Still, the X1 feels sporty to drive. Whether rear- or all-wheel drive, the base 240-hp, turbo four-cylinder and eight-speed automatic transmission deliver quick acceleration and a good 23-mpg overall. The potent turbo 3.0-liter, six-cylinder gets a six-speed automatic. Steering feels sharp and communicative, though heavy at low speeds. You can get a basic model without BMW's complicated iDrive system. Reliability has been average. A redesigned X1 arrives in fall 2015 and promises more room.
