, Automotive Editor -

BWM's smallest crossover, the X1 appeals to buyers who value sportiness over utility. It's a nimble performer with enough power and features to satisfy folks who might otherwise opt for a compact luxury coupe or sedan.

What's New for 2015

The X1 rolls into 2015 unchanged.

2015 BMW X1

Choosing Your X1

The X1 starts out with a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder with 240 horsepower, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Performance gets a big boost from the optional 3-liter six-cylinder turbo that produces 300 horsepower and comes with a six-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is available with the base engine and standard with the six-cylinder.

Trim levels break down according to drivetrain:

sDrive28i

Comes with the 2-liter engine and rear-wheel drive, plus 17-inch wheels, automatic wipers, leatherette seats with manual control, Bluetooth phone and audio, and an eight-speaker sound system with HD radio.

xDrive28i

Adds all-wheel drive with hill descent control.

xDrive35i

Gets the six-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive, plus 18-inch wheels, power front seats with driver memory, a panoramic sunroof and upgraded exterior lighting.

Any model can be equipped with one of three trim lines (xLine, Sport, M Sport), each with its own 18-inch wheels and specific interior and exterior trim. The M Sport also features a sport-tuned suspension.

Most other options are grouped into packages. The Premium Package adds leather upholstery, keyless ignition, auto-dimming mirrors and satellite radio. The 28i also gets a panoramic sunroof and power front seats, which are already standard on the 25i. Heated front seats and a heating steering wheel are available in the Cold Weather Package.

The Technology Package includes BMW's iDrive control interface, a navigation system, Internet radio and integrated smartphone apps. Models so equipped can also get the Driver Assistance Package with a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors. For buyers who want it all, BMW offers the Ultimate Package, which bundles all the contents of the option packages.

CarsDirect Tip

You don't have to upgrade to the six-cylinder to have fun with the X1. The efficient 2-liter is spunky enough for a vehicle of this size.
