Overview

The BMW X1 is offered with just one engine for 2016-- a 4-cylinder turbocharged unit that makes 228 hp and 258 foot-pounds of torque. This engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic sending power to all four wheels. The combination should be good for 0-60 sprints in the low 6 second range. Thanks to turbocharging and a relatively light vehicle, fuel economy should still be respectable for the segment. Standard equipment levels are quite generous on the new BMW X1, though there are still plenty of options and packages available to further enhance the vehicle. Highlights on the standard equipment list include power front seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio and cruise control functions, a 7-speaker stereo, electronically adjustable heated exterior mirrors, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights, dynamic cruise control, 18-inch wheels and tires, a 6.5-inch monitor, fog lamps, an automatic tailgate and an alarm. Option packages include the M Sport package with highlights the sportiness of the X1, as well as a Premium Package, which adds an extra level of luxury. The M Sport package includes updates to the transmission, including steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, sportier seats, a sportier steering wheel and stiffer suspension for better handling. The Premium package offers access to full LED headlights and huge panoramic moonroof. A Driver Assistance Plus package offers speed limit info, active cruise control, park distance control, a Lane Departure Warning system, automatic high beams, a front collision warning system and a rear view camera. A parking Assistant system is also included that aids drivers when they are trying to parallel park. Options on the BMW X1 are plentiful. Buyers willing to upgrade from the 6.5-inch screen to an 8.8 inch one will also get access to BMW apps and real time traffic updates. The navigation system has a heads up display function, allowing it to project data directly onto the windshield. 19-inch wheels make the car look lower and meaner, while a Harman Kardon stereo system includes 12 speakers and 360 watts of sound.
