When you see the rugged and angular design of the BMW X1 you’re going to be amazed by what this impressive vehicle can do. This is a model that’s not as tall as other SUVs on the market and it makes the drive much more enjoyable for you when you’re ready to head out on the road. Inside, you’ll see plenty of room for up to five people to ride along and bring their cargo as well. There’s a ton of electronics for you to enjoy and a driving feeling that you’re going to love every time you get behind the wheel of this vehicle.
The Foundation of the X1
If you start at the base model of the BMW X1, you’re going to have the sDrive28i that brings you eight-way power front seats, automatic climate controls, a power tailgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a rearview monitor, push-button starting, and 18-inch wheels. The wheels of the X1 are shod in run-flat tires to make sure you can make it to the service station to have a new one put on when you have a puncture. The electronics include a 6.5-inch infotainment screen, a seven-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth connectivity. Every model brings you complimentary scheduled maintenance for four years/50,000 miles as well.
Adding More to the X1 You Want to Drive
There are several great ways to upgrade the X1 and have more features for your driving pleasure. Add a different color to the outside, bring in Apple CarPlay to connect your iPhone, including a higher resolution 8.8-inch color touchscreen, a panoramic moonroof, a navigation system, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a 12-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system. You can also add the benefits of lane departure warnings, front collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and active cruise control to the package that is the X1 that you want to drive.
One Engine is All You Need
The only way the BMW X1 does something that doesn’t feel like it’s in keeping with the BMW tradition is from under the hood. While most BMW models offer several powertrains for you to choose from, the X1 only has one. This powertrain is an extremely impressive 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 228 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque while being attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain is good enough to get the X1 to sixty mph in only 6.3 seconds, which is no slouch at all.
Feel the Small and Active Quality of the X1
There’s certainly something alluring and impressive about the BMW X1 as a small vehicle that’s active and ready to drive. When you see it, you’re going to want to get behind the wheel and take it for a drive. Let the team at your nearby BMW dealership help you make this model the one that will allow
