2017 BMW X1 ratings and reviews
In 2016, BMW completely redid the X1 SAV (""Sports Activity Vehicle""), changing its platform from a longitudinal rear-wheel model to a transverse, front-drive-based chassis, the same one used by Mini Cooper. That change remains in place on 2017 X1 models. Under the hood, the 2017 X1 has a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 engine with 228 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic transmission. X1 sDrive28i models have front-wheel-drive while X1 xDrive28i models have all-wheel-drive and the option to send all the power to the rear wheels when needed. The 2017 BMW X1 feels roomier than past models, as it's taller and has a smaller engine compartment. Standard features include automatic climate control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, push-button ignition, and a power tailgate. An infotainment system has a 6.5-inch screen, seven speakers, USB input and Bluetooth connectivity. Roadside assistance is available for four years or unlimited miles, and scheduled maintenance is complimentary for the first four years or 50,000 miles.
