On sale now at John Clark in Aberdeen and Tayside, the BMW X1 is the most compact of the German marque’s range of SUVs. This good looking, practical, fun-to-drive and economical vehicle comes in SE, Sport and M Sport and xLine trim levels.
A five-seat capacity and plenty of head and legroom in both compartments ensure that the X1 is ideal for families and businesses alike. The vehicle features lots of useful cubby spaces too, including four large door bins, a decently proportioned glovebox and a generously-sized central armrest compartment. The latest X1 iteration offers even more luggage capacity than before, as much as 505 litres with all seats in position. Thanks to 40/20/40 electrically split-folding rear seats, cargo volume expands to an impressive 1,550 litres, which is greater than is offered by either the Range Rover Evoque or the Audi Q3. The rear seats slide too, providing even more flexibility.
The inclusion of power-operated windows and automatic two-zone air conditioning makes it simple to establish an agreeable cabin climate. A six-speaker sound system is included as standard too, and featuring DAB radio, and can easily be operated via steering wheel-mounted controls. Thanks to the presence of Bluetooth connectivity, audio streaming and hands-free telephone communication are possible. A BMW Navigation System is included too, which makes getting to each destination straightforward – and last-minute journey amendments are easy to facilitate in response to changing traffic and/or weather conditions.
The BMW X1 has been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating, so it’s no surprise to learn that it comes stacked with numerous driver aids and protective features. Included are Active Guard and Park Distance Control. The former significantly reduces the risk of low-speed collisions, while the latter utilises ultrasound sensors in order to make parking as easy as can be.
The dynamically designed X1 possesses a purposeful stance, thanks to its rising window line, raised ride height and impressive-looking front fascia. Flanked by sleek automatic rain-sensing headlights, the car’s chrome-trimmed twin-kidney grille comprises 14 black-finished vertical louvers. The X1 rides on attractive, lightweight 17-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels too, and features a chrome-finished exhaust pipe. This very practical five-door SUV offers automatic tailgate operation, allowing easy access to the boot, while smart black roof rails provide additional load-bearing possibilities.
The X1 is fitted with a 1.5-litre 140bhp petrol engine as standard, which manages up to 51.4mpg and produces CO2 emissions from 121g/km. This 18i unit also delivers 220Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 9.4 seconds. BMW X1 M Sport models, meanwhile, offer optimum performance levels. For instance, a 2.0-litre 231bhp petrol unit produces a peak torque of 450Nm, 0-60mph in roughly 6.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 146mph.
