The BMW X1 is offered in three different models for the U.S.: rear-wheel-drive sDrive28i, all-wheel-drive xDrive28i, and all-wheel-drive xDrive35i. Both of the 28i models include a 240-horsepower, 2.0L TwinPower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, while the 35i gets a 300-hp, 3.0L TwinPower turbocharged 6-cylinder. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed Steptronic automatic transmission.

2016,In exterior profile, the X1 looks like a somewhat scaled-down version of the up-sized X3 crossover, with the distinctive BMW quad round headlamps and kidney grille from the front with available xenon headlmps with LED light rings--and a more contoured look from the side, with flared wheel arches and turn signals integrated into the side mirrors. At the back, the X1 gets LED taillights.

2016,Inside, the X1 has space for five, with the rear seatback split 40/20/40 to expand cargo space when needed and still retain passenger space.
