Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the BMW X1

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - January 10, 2020
  • 2020 BMW X1 available; 2019s sold out
  • Incentive: $1,000 college grad bonus
  • Finance: 3.45% for 60 months + $2,000
  • Lease: From $349 for 36 mos. on 2020s

BMW’s smallest crossover:

Buyers continue to flock to the BMW X1, which is the brand's smallest utility vehicle. The last of the 2019s sold out in December, thus dealer stock is comprised entirely of the 2020s.

The specials from BMW vary by region and are set to expire on February 2, 2020. We’re not expecting additional changes before then. For our examples, these deals cover the western states.

A college graduate offer:

If you are a recent college graduate, there is an incentive available for you. You may combine BMW’s $1,000 college grad rebate with all other offers, lowering your upfront costs accordingly. Check with your BMW dealer to confirm eligibility.

This month’s financing offer:

BMW offers 3.45-percent APR financing for 60 months. The 2020 X1 features a $2,000 APR Credit you'll combine with this rate.

One lease offer available:

Once again this month, BMW's lease offer includes a $750 conquest/loyalty discount, which is reflected in the cost. If you aren't eligible, expect to make up the difference in your amount due at signing.

The promoted lease offer covers the 2020 BMW X1 sDrive28i. This one comes in at $349 per month for 36 months with $3,999 due at signing. Here, your effective monthly cost is $460.

BMW’s lease deals include 10,000 miles per year of driving allowance. At lease end, you’ll pay a $350 disposition fee.

2020 BMW X1 Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 BMW X1 receives a midlife update incorporating the brand's latest design language. The revised front end carries sharper lines, a larger grille, and hexagonal headlights. The rear wears L-shape light bars and enlarged tailpipe openings. These tweaks give BMW's entry-level crossover a stronger resemblance to its larger siblings.

Interiors gain a larger 8.8-inch touchscreen, an electronic gear shift, and decorative stitching on the dashboard and floor mats. The transmission has been retuned for faster, smoother shifts. Models equipped with the available M Sport Package display a more aggressive look.

Choosing Your BMW X1

BMW offers the X1 in a single trim level with front- (sDrive) or all-wheel drive (xDrive). The sDrive28i starts at $36,195 including destination, while the xDrive28i is priced $2,000 higher at $38,195.

Engine Choices

A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers all BMW X1 models. It makes 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The setup achieves an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 27 combined with front-wheel drive, or 23/31/26 mpg (city/highway/combined) with all-wheel drive.

According to BMW, the xDrive28i sprints from 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds, while the sDrive28i does it in 6.6 seconds. These are strong numbers for an entry-level luxury crossover.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Generous rear head room permits the X1 to seat up to five in relative comfort. For out-of-town trips, we recommend limiting the crew to four. Adding slide and recline functions to the rear seat costs $300, which is certainly worth it.

Cargo space ranks firmly above average for this class. The X1 offers 27.1 cubic feet behind the rear seat, and 58.7 cubic feet with it folded. Luxury crossovers, especially small ones, tend to focus on style over utility, but this BMW does just fine in both departments.

Safety Features

The BMW X1 comes nicely equipped with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors. Adaptive cruise control is a $1,000 option, while BMW also offers an automated parking system for a bargain $200.

The X1 has a five-star overall safety rating form NHTSA.


Every X1 gets an 8.8-inch touchscreen, navigation, HD radio, seven audio speakers, and complimentary Apple CarPlay for a year (it costs $80 per year after that). BMW still doesn't offer Android Auto in any of its vehicles.

Front passengers get two 12-volt power outlets. There's also one in the back and another in the cargo area.

Wireless device charging and a wi-fi hotspot are available in a $500 bundle. A 12-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system costs $875.

28i - From $36,195

The base price includes a power liftgate, power front sport seats, LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and leather-like Sensatec upholstery. Opting for genuine leather costs $1,450, and wood or aluminum trim is available for $350. The available Luxury Package furnishes upgraded leather and wood or aluminum trim for $1,550.

The $2,550 Convenience Package adds 10 popular features, including a panoramic sunroof, a hands-free power liftgate, satellite radio, power-folding side mirrors, LED fog lights, and power lumbar adjustments for the front seats. The $5,000 Premium Package has all of those features, plus heated front seats, a head-up display, and a touchpad controller for the navigation system.

Buyers can take the X1 in a sporty direction with the $4,650 M Sport Design. The treatment features an aerodynamic body kit, special transmission tuning, and sportier interior trim. A sport-tuned suspension can be added for $400. Everything in the Premium Package is included as well. With the M Sport Package in place, the price of the Premium Package drops to $2,450.
