    Expert Rating

    4.6 (Excellent)
    23 City / 33 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 BMW X1 OVERVIEW

    BMW's smallest crossover shakes off any doubt about its legitimacy this year with a bolder exterior and more room inside. The X1 now feels like a proper, albeit junior, member of the brand's utility vehicle family.

    What's New for 2016

    The X1 has been completely redesigned.

    Choosing Your BMW X1

    BMW X1 Interior Front

    The X1 sits on an all-new platform that's taller and wider than before, but still within bounds for the smallest class of luxury crossovers. Passengers sit higher now, and those in back get noticeably more legroom. A sliding and reclining rear seat is available for the first time as an option.

    Every X1 carries BMW's new 228-horsepower turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is now standard.

    For now, the X1 comes in a single trim level, officially known as xDrive 28i. Standard fare includes selectable driving modes, 18-inch alloy wheels, a power liftgate, power front seats with driver memory, automatic wipers, and a seven-speaker sound system with HD radio and Bluetooth streaming.

    BMW X1 Front Seats

    The Luxury package adds leather seating and wood or aluminum interior trim. Models so equipped are eligible for Premium package with a panoramic sunroof, keyless access, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, LED headlamps, and ambient interior lighting. Heated front seats are available as part of the Cold Weather package.

    The Technology package includes navigation with real-time traffic data, numerous online services, integrated smartphone apps, and a head-up display. The Driver Assistance package tacks on front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and an automated parking system. A Plus version of the same adds adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, frontal collision mitigation, and pedestrian detection.

    Many of the Premium and Technology features can be added individually (picking only your must-haves can help reduce cost). A premium Harman Kardon sound system is also available on a standalone basis.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Although we wish it were standard, the sliding/reclining rear seat is a worthy option at $300. Because the interior feels so inviting when slathered in wood and leather, we also recommend the $1,550 Luxury package. All the other available features are indeed useful, but we're not thrilled over the fact that a fully loaded X1 costs the same as some seven-passenger luxury crossovers.
