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.

What you must know before buying the BMW X1

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - September 4, 2020
  • 2020 BMW X1 available, 2021s orderable
  • Incentive: $500 conquest/loyalty rebate
  • Finance: 0.9% for 60 months
  • Lease: From $399 for 36 months

BMW’s smallest crossover:

Buyers continue to flock to the BMW X1, which is the brand's smallest utility vehicle. Dealer stock is comprised entirely of the 2020s, but you are also now able to place an order for the 2021 X1, which is expected to be a carryover.

The current offers are in place through September 30, 2020. We're not expecting the next update until October.

Available funds to claim:

For the 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.

If you're a current BMW owner or are coming from a competing brand, a $500 loyalty/conquest bonus is available.

This month’s financing offer:

BMW offers 0.9-percent APR financing for 60 months, which is a strong offer. 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 $500 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 $399 per month for 36 months with $4,124 due at signing. Here, your effective monthly cost is $514. This isn't a good deal, especially as the upfront cash required has risen over the past few months.

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

2021 BMW X1 Overview

Neil Cumins
Automotive Editor

What's New

Mechanically unchanged, the 2021 BMW X1 returns as the baby in the brand's seven-model SUV range. There’s only one engine and trim choice, which means the options list remains the home of some highly desirable safety and comfort features.

Choosing Your BMW X1

The X1 range is easy to navigate, with a single trim level: 28i. The only choice is between front-wheel drive (sDrive) and all-wheel drive (xDrive). Pricing starts at $36,395 including destination.

Engine Choices

Every X1 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine, which produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This is fed to the front wheels as standard through an eight-speed automatic transmission with manual shift options. All-wheel drive is a $2,000 upgrade.

Fuel economy for the 2021 model has yet to be confirmed, but the mechanically-identical 2020 model achieved 24 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 27 combined, according to the EPA. Fuel efficiency drops to 23/31/26 mpg (city/highway/combined) with AWD.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The BMW X1 seats five passengers across two rows, offering 40.4 inches of front leg room and 37.0 inches of rear leg room. Cargo capacity stands at 27.1 cubic feet with the rear seats in place.

Safety Features

The X1 comes standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, speed limit information, and front and rear parking sensors.

The brakes are notable for featuring automatic drying and fade compensation, helping to ensure optimal performance. In the event of an accident, the car will disengage the fuel pump, unlock the doors, activate hazard and interior lighting and notify the emergency services, even if the SOS button isn’t pressed.

Optional safety features include adaptive cruise control ($1,000), adaptive LED headlights ($950), and an automated parking system ($200).


It’s disappointing that Android Auto isn’t available even as an option, as BMW continues to offer Apple CarPlay in isolation. However, the X1 does get an 8.8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, and a seven-speaker HiFi audio system. It’s also possible to remotely lock or unlock the cabin and track the vehicle using the manufacturer’s Remote Services app.

Buyers will find wireless charging ($500) and a Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system ($875) on the options list. Navigation and a head-up display are also available as part of the $4,250 Premium Package.

28i - From $36,395

The X1 rides on 18-inch bi-color wheels, with rear privacy glass, roof rails, a power tailgate, halogen headlights, LED daytime running lights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Inside, synthetic leather covers seats which have eight-way power in the front. There's a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters and automatic climate control.

The X1’s extensive options list includes the M Sport design theme, priced at $4,350. It adds an aerodynamic body kit, high-gloss roof rails, unique 18-inch wheels, and exclusive exterior trim.

The $4,250 Premium Package brings 12 features: navigation, a moonroof, a head-up display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, auto-dimming and power-folding side mirrors, keyless entry, four-way power lumbar support for the front seats, a universal garage door opener, ambient interior lighting, a heated steering wheel, and adaptive LED headlights.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2021 BMW X1's features are a bit underwhelming for the price in our opinion. The Premium Package represents a highly worthwhile upgrade to add some welcome luxury to the X1.
