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).
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.
