Expert Rating

2.75 (Fair)
23 City / 32 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.


BMW’s smallest utility vehicle is the X1, a handsome model that looks like a tall wagon. Its design matches far more expensive BMW models, but its starting price is downright reasonable. A responsive turbocharged engine powers this SUV, but there's no manual transmission to be had.

What's New for 2019

The BMW X1 is unchanged for the 2019 model year.


Choosing Your BMW X1


The 2019 BMW X1 is a subcompact luxury utility vehicle with room for five and a simple lineup. It sits on a front-wheel-drive architecture as the X1 sDrive28i, or all-wheel drive for $2,000 more as the X1 xDrive28i. All models come with a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which generates 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Additionally, there are two designs to choose from: xLine and M Sport. The X1 with the xLine Design is priced from $35,945 (all prices include the $995 destination charge), while the M Sport brings the starting price to $40,595. The M Sport adds performance and appearance upgrades, including Shadowline exterior trim, high-gloss roof rails, upgraded 18-inch wheels, an aerodynamic kit, sport seats, a sport automatic transmission, and an M sport suspension and steering wheel.

Standard features include fog lights, 18-inch Y-spoke wheels set within all-season run-flat tires, a power liftgate, imitation leather seats, and high-gloss black trim with chrome accents. You’ll also find power front seats, automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a seven-speaker audio system, and an iDrive electronics interface. You have a choice of 11 exterior colors, including two non-metallic paints at no added cost. Eight of the remaining nine cost $550. The ninth is Estoril Blue Metallic, which automatically requires the $4,650 upgrade to the M Sport Design.

The X1 has three package options. The first one is the Convenience Package ($2,500), which adds power-folding mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a panoramic moonroof, keyless entry, ambient lighting, satellite radio, a universal garage door opener, and lumbar support. The Luxury Package ($1,550) brings wood and chrome trim, or leather for an additional $350. Finally, the Premium Package ($2,450) includes LED headlights with cornering, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, navigation, and heated front seats; shoppers may optionally upgrade to adaptive cruise control with active driving assistant for an additional $1,000.

Individual options include sliding and reclining rear seat adjustment ($300), wireless charging and a wi-fi hotspot ($500), heated front seats and steering wheel ($550), a Harman Kardon audio system ($875), an M Sport suspension ($400), LED headlights with cornering lights ($950), and park assist ($200).

CarsDirect Tip

Options can add up quickly with the 2019 BMW X1. With the xLine Design, the X1 offers very good value. Choose your individual options and packages carefully and a BMW crossover can be had for under $40,000.
