Choosing Your BMW X1

The X1 is lower and shorter than the compact BMW X3, which makes it a subcompact crossover in our view. Even so, the X1 offers the same engine choices as the larger model, so performance is strong across the board. The standard turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder serves up 240 horsepower and can be had with rear- or all-wheel drive. Select the 300-horsepower 3-liter turbo six-cylinder and all-wheel drive is standard. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
