Bigger than it looks Driving Dynamics Control with
I recently purchased a 2017 BMW X1 Xdrive. I have previously owned (2) 3 series and (1) 5 series. IMO, the 2017 X1 is the best value for the money of all the other BMW's I have owned. It is not the best handling or planted to the road BMW I've owned, actually it is the least. But, for its class, its absolutely the best handling and value for money. For this class(small CUV), I actually prefer the front drive platform to give it the best overall use of space. This little CUV(I consider it a cuv instead of SUV), because its actually more like a slightly raised hatchback or wagon but looks like a SUV. The 2017 is slightly revised from the complete remodel in 2016. The 2016 has a standard sport suspension but for 2017 they changed suspensions and made the sport or M suspension available as an option with the M sport package only. I assumed I would like the 2016 better but after test driving the 2016 and 2017 models, I actually preferred the 2017 suspension better. IMO, the 2016 is a little harsh and hard. I think the 2016 having a sport suspension and awd the handling is amazing but a little hard for many people interested in a suv. The 2017 has a more comfortable feeling but still offers terrific handling, especially for its class. I really enjoy the std "Driving Dynamics control" with Eco, comfort and sport settings. In sport it changes the heft and feel of the steering and even though it probably doesn't effect the suspension, some how it does effect the over all feeling of the handling and seems to improve it. I drive all the time in sport setting. I have not driven the FWD only model but I am pretty sure the AWD model provides better handling and a more planted feeling. For those of you that don't want to purchase the M sports package that includes sport suspension, the standard suspension with sport setting and awd still offers great handling in the 2017. This car zips around and goes into tight spots pretty easy. Its actually a small car but feels very big inside and that's because of the front wheel drive platform it offers a much better use of space. The back seats offer plenty room. The cargo space in back is plenty big and also there is space underneath the floor on the back that provides even more storage. There is also plenty of head room in the X1. The quality of the plastics are good, typical Teutonic German simple look but a luxury look and feel to dash. The std front seat probably needs a little more cushion but the standard vinyl seats look good. If you are looking for a small suv(cuv) I think the BMW x1 is clearly the best in its class.
First BMW
We shopped around for quite some time looking for a small/midsize crossover. We test drove literally dozens of vehicles: Mazda, Audi, Benz, Honda, Ford, to name a few. We were between the Volvo XC 60 and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. We loved the Volvo but the price at $52K out the door was a little more than we were willing to pay. We were about to settle on the Hyundai (even though it didn't drive especially well) when the night before I read an article about the X1 and figured we'll go check it out before settling on the Hyundai. To our delight, we loved the way the X1 looked, drove, and its interior is bigger than it seems from the outside. The trunk was the biggest surprise to us with the underneath compartment. We loved the car. We compromised on the base X-Drive model MSRP of $36K but got them down to $33K. We took it home that night and have been enjoying it ever since. Nearly 1 month later, we have gotten a good feel for the X1. Our biggest complaints have to do with some basic features lacking in the base model which we knew going in. The fully loaded Hyundai had all the features I'm talking about i.e. LED Headlights, XM Radio, Blind Spot monitoring, Sunroof, backup camera, adaptive cruise, forward collision warning, integrated sunshades, heated seats, navigation to name some big ones. The X1 does have some of these features if you elect certain packages but the price will quickly climb into the 40's and beyond. Ultimately, we chose the BMW because it drove 100 times better than the Hyundai and at the end of the day, no matter how much you dress up a Hyundai it is still a Hyundai and drives as such. We've been averaging 25MPG combined which is better than all the other vehicles we tried especially with an all-wheel drive. Besides our lack of options our only other complaint really is the suspension. As expert reviewers have stated, the X1's suspension is very stiff and you feel it when you go over speed bumps or bumps in the road. But I still prefer the stiffness over the squishyness of the Hyundai's body roll suspension. Another weird thing our X1 lacks is the ability to control the rear dome light from the rear. It's an odd design flaw but we'll get over it. Ultimately, we are very pleased with our decision.
2017 X1, My 13th BMW
This is a small SUV, but it holds me very well, 6'3 255lbs. This small version of an SUV has an comfortable ride, a little stiff for some, but not for BMWers. It handles very very well. Superior acceleration for a 4cyl engine. Good visibility all the way around.This X1 is fully loaded, but a blind spot monitor was not available at any cost. It must be the only BMW without that option. Why? I think the BSP is a great option, it has saved me a couple of times from cutting somebody off or even an accident that would have been my fault. My wife drives the car mostly, and she loves it. Small enough so that she can park and maneuver around things fairly easily, but large enough to feel like you have some metal between you and the other idiots who drive so nutsy on our local roads. I find the interior of the X1 a little inferior in quality materials from other BMW's, still good stuff, but somehow it seems a little weak for a BMW. The technology and especially the layout of the interior is the best there is, anywhere. We test drove the Audi Q3, Lexus NX, BMW was a clear winner over these two comparable models. I would give this BMW 4.5 stars if not for the lacking BSP. It only gets 4 as is. My 2006 M3 convertible soft top is still my favorite, it gets a 5 along with my Porsche Macan S, the only two cars I have ever given a 5 rating to, and I have owned LOTS of high end cars and SUV's. Cheers............... Update......... 6 months in, very happy with the car. My wife drives it mostly and she loves it. Perfect size and good fuel economy for all the running around she does.

2017 BMW X1 for Sale

Sorry! There aren't any 2017 BMW X1 for sale near you.

Largely unchanged after an update last year, the 2017 BMW X1 continues to deliver the appealing blend of utility and performance desired by many shoppers in the market for a compact luxury crossover. Built on a platform it shares with BMW’s Mini brand, the X1 is designed to be roomy, stylish and comfortable, while still returning significant value as the Bavarian automaker’s lowest-price SUV.

The only available powerplant is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and comes linked to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes. Although power is down relative to the 2.0-liter engine from a couple years ago, the newer version still delivers lively performance, with a top speed of over 130 mph. In Edmunds testing, the X1 achieved a 0-60 mph time of 6.5 seconds. And fuel economy is maximized with automatic stop-start technology.

Unlike its bigger siblings, the BMW X3 and X5, the X1 now comes standard with a front-wheel-drive powertrain (four-wheel drive is optional). Buyers looking for the ultimate handling in a crossover may need to do some comparison shopping: When BMW dropped rear-wheel drive for the current generation X1, the small SUV lost some of the sporty handling that attracted more performance-minded owners. Nevertheless, the X1 is still competitive with its closest rivals, and on-road performance will likely satisfy the majority of drivers.

Even though it is built for competitive pricing, the interior of the X1 offers enough quality materials and comfort and convenience features to satisfy most luxury crossover shoppers. The cabin provides driver and passengers with plenty of legroom, especially in the rear, while still leaving more space for cargo than most vehicles in this class.Touches like standard eight-way power-adjustable seats, automatic climate control and a power tailgate add to the high-end feel.

The EPA rates the front-wheel drive BMW X1 at 26 mpg combined (23 city/32 highway). Ticking the xDrive (4WD) box brings a rating of 25 mpg combined (22 city/31 highway).

Like most BMWs, the X1 has a wide range of available packages and optional accessories that allow buyers to tailor the vehicle to their own individual preferences. The Premium package adds a number of convenience items, and the M Sport package drives up the performance with tighter suspension, larger wheels and other sporty add-ons. Other option groups offer increased luxury, technology and driver-assistance systems.

Whatever your particular needs and preferences, let Edmunds help you find the right 2017 BMW X1 for you.
