If you’re considering a crossover or smaller SUV, you should take a look at the BMW X1. This sporty entry into BMW’s lineup of luxury vehicles brings all the comfort and amenities of BMW into a compact, yet roomy, Sports Activity Vehicle package.
Playful, Distinctive Styling
The silhouette of the X1 is less serious than many vehicles. It is sporty and agile, but bold and authentic. BMW is offering a larger range of exterior paint colors, including bolder colors than is typical. Bright LED headlights offer both excellent lighting and definition to the front of the car. And a wider wheelbase provides both a confident stance and better stability, leading to excellent handling on the road.
The X1 doesn’t sacrifice the luxury that attracts so many people to the BMW brand. Premium materials are used on every surface, and the seating is comfortable and functional. Optional Sport Seats take the driving experience to the next level, and the leather-wrapped steering wheel improves both handling and comfort.
A premium audio system rounds out the experience with optional Harmon Kardon speakers that will embrace you with your chosen soundtrack from SiriusXM while you drive.
The X1 comes with BMW’s 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine, for 241 horsepower. the 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission smoothly shifts between gears for BMW’s trademark effortless drive.
Live Cockpit Plus includes a gorgeous BMW Curved Display with a central display and configurable instrument cluster. The system is intended to use voice commands first and touch second, for an intuitive and highly-personalized interface. The touchscreen is beautifully integrated into the aesthetic of the vehicle’s interior.
Advanced Vehicle and Key Memory help to retain your recently-used settings so you can easily start off in comfortable settings. Remembered settings include climate control, seat and mirror settings, radio/sound system settings, and lighting adjustments.
Invest in Safety
BMW has continuously brought improved and updated safety features to its lineup, and the X1 is no exception. Additional physical restraints, such as airbags on both front seats for both forward and side collisions (including knee airbags), and the front and rear Head Protection System (HPS) help improve on existing safety standards for added physical security for all passengers. Impact sensors automatically stop the fuel pump, unlock doors, and turn on both interior lights and exterior hazard lights to heighten visibility.
Smart assistants like Active Driving Assistant can help to direct the car when you want to take a rest, although the driver must still maintain focus and be ready to intervene if needed. Frontal Collision Warning, Active Blind Spot Detection, and Lane Departure Warning can all serve to help you focus while you drive, whether or not you utilize the smart Assistant functions.
