X1 Overview

BMW is known to offer some of the most outstanding cars in the segment that are both premium and powerful. Plus, even the entry-level cars are very much in line with the higher models and won’t feel very downsized in terms of the quality.

One such car from the Bavarian automaker is the X1, an entry-level crossover in the big lineup but extremely promising. The newest model was introduced back in 2016 and has given a tough fight to its competitors like the Mercedes-Benz GLC. However, starting at a little over AED 160,000, it is marginally more affordable to its closest rival.

BMW X1 Interior & Features

The settings on the inside of the BMW X1 is very similar to that of any other cars in the company’s lineup. The first and foremost thing that will thrill you is the addition of a panoramic sunroof which is great for the ventilation as well as to experience the surrounding while driving through the lush scenic beauty.

And as usual, the company has gone its way to design the centre console and the dashboard in the most driver-focused way. The three-spoke steering wheel has a lot of control buttons for the audio and the likes. The head-up display is the same as you will find in almost all other BMW cars, that is, mounted on the dashboard top.

X1 Exterior

The BMW X1 may be the smallest crossover in the company’s lineup but it looks very posh right from the first impression. It has a very dynamic and versatile character in its approach and has the resemblance to the BMW genes at every spot. The body is very sculpted, especially the sides.

There is that one thing that the X1 is and will always be known for. Cometh the darkness, the six-eye illumination up at the front hold the distinctive X-family look. All of the lightings are LED units, cornering lights, which includes the adaptive beam technology increases the illumination of the roadsides and also decreases energy consumption by 50%.

BMW X1 Ride & Handling

Once you get behind the wheels of this BMW X1, will surely love the way it handles the amazing power. The throttle response on the higher tuned engine is just immense and you will love the throaty exhaust. With such power, it can hit the 100 kmph mark from a standstill in just 6.5 seconds while the lower tuned engine can do the same in 7.7 seconds. However, the power is lower than the other bigger siblings, and hence, the top speed remains at 225 kmph and 235 kmph respectively for the lower and higher.

The rear wheel drive is the mechanism that is the reason behind it making the ride so sporty and fun-to-drive.

X1 Engine & Fuel Consumption

One of the best things about the BMW X1 is the engine variant. Though the company offers just one engine option, the sole motor is made into two tunings. The first derivation of the 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine makes 192 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque.

On the other hand, the greater tuning makes 231 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels in both the trims and the transmission duties in both are done by the same 8-speed automatic.

BMW X1 Braking & Safety

The BMW X1 gets the standard safety kit like most other models from the shed, that is cruise control, dual front, side and curtain airbags, stability control, etc. As for the braking, if the disc brakes aren’t enough, the addition of ABS and electronic brakeforce distribution. Also, there is the cornering brake control that makes braking while cornering a safe affair.

X1 Verdict

The BMW X1 does deserve to be one of the most-preferred crossovers in its segment as it has everything right. Or does it?

The price seems to be a little on the higher side, as usual for any BMW car, though it is cheaper than its Mercedes-Benz counterpart. However, the small price ask does bring down the power on the lower range as some of the similar cars are more powerful or are more fun-to-drive options.
