Overview

What's New

The 2023 BMW X1 receives a complete redesign. The X1 is larger inside and out and its styling captures the latest BMW styling direction inside and out. The powertrain is also updated and all-wheel drive is now standard.

Choosing Your BMW X1

The 2023 BMW X1 is available in a single trim, xDrive28i, and carries a base price of $39,595.

Engine Choices

The X1 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that develops 241 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission enables engine-off coasting while the standard all-wheel-drive system is aided by a new and faster-reacting chassis (and traction) control system.

The X1 earns an EPA-estimated 25 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 28 combined which are better than its Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA rivals.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The BMW crossover stretches another 1.7 inches over last year’s model to 177.2 inches which puts it right between the Mercedes-Benz GLA and GLB models. Its width (72.6 inches) and its height (64.6 inches) are also greater than before and are on par with the rest of the class. The cargo area can fit 25.7 cubic feet of stuff or 57.2 cubic feet with the seats folded, which compare favorably to the 21.6 and 50.1-cubic foot respective ratings of the swoopier X2.

Safety Features

The X2 is standard with automatic emergency braking, pedestrian and cyclist detection, cross-path assist, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. Parking assist, parking sensors, and a drive recorder are available through the Premium Package.

IIHS or NHTSA has not yet completed crash ratings.

Connectivity

The X1 features BMW’s latest infotainment system with a 10.7-inch curved touch screen (with console-mounted controller), iDrive 8 with natural speech recognition, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Siri, SiriusXM with 360L, Bluetooth, and over-the-air-update capabilities. There are four USB-C and two 12-volt power outlets for charging duties while a Harman Kardon sound system with 12 speakers (with two under the front seats) and a wireless charger are optional.

Time For A Redesign. After being on sale for seven model years, BMW has introduced a redesigned X1 for 2023. The 2023 X1’s rap sheet reads like a major glow-up. The subcompact SUV grows in size and features a new design, a revised powertrain, and more high-tech features.

For consumers that were waiting for BMW to introduce a new X1, the 2023 model represents a large step up from the last-gen model. Unfortunately, it also has a price tag to match.

Frisky Engine, Refined Ride. The X1 comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 241 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The powertrain delivers the punch that one would expect to see from a BMW. Smash the throttle and the engine responds with a little lag before delivering a healthy push of torque and pulling strong until the redline. The new seven-speed dual-clutch delivers quick shifts and operates smoothly.

In addition to coming with an updated powertrain, the X1 receives an updated platform compared to last year’s model. BMW has introduced stronger chassis components and tuned the suspension. The result is a subcompact SUV that not only handles well and is enjoyable to drive but delivers sporty handling.

Pricey, But Well-Equipped. At $40,095 (with destination), the X1 isn’t classified as an affordable SUV. But it does come with a lot of standard features.

Just like the BMW 7-Series and iX electric SUV, which are some of the automaker’s most expensive vehicles, the 2023 X1 comes with the iDrive 8 infotainment system. The infotainment system is controlled through a 10.7-inch touchscreen, which includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, seven audio speakers, and four USB ports. The SUV also comes with a large 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster.

Beyond its impressive roster of tech features, the X1 comes standard with niceties like synthetic leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, a power liftgate, push-button start, and ambient interior lighting. BMW offers a litany of optional features and packages to make the X1 as luxurious as you want, as long as you’re willing to spend some money.

BMW X1

Slightly More Interior Space. Compared to the outgoing model, the 2023 X1 is slightly larger than before. The SUV is 1.7 inches longer, 0.9 inches wider, and 1.7 inches taller. The X1’s wheelbase has also grown by 0.9 inches.

The result is a slightly larger cabin than last year with more space for passengers. There’s a lot of 101.2 cubic feet of passenger space. For passengers in the back, that translates to 39.4 inches of headroom and 37 inches of legroom.

Cargo capacity has actually gone down for 2023. With the rear seats in place, the X1 has 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s slightly down from 27.1 cubic feet of space from last year. With the rear seats folded, the X1 offers up to 57.2 cubic feet of total cargo space. The 2022 model offered up to 58.7 cubic feet of cargo space.

Attractive Interior Design. The 2023 X1 moves away from the low-end design of last year’s SUV to look far more upscale. The enormous displays are integrated into a single curved piece of glass, while the simple dashboard has flowing trim pieces and minimal controls.

The seats are well-cushioned and bolstered to provide comfort over long drives. The upscale materials are also nice to interact with when spending a lot of time in the SUV, though if you poke around enough, you’ll find some hard plastics.

Final Thoughts. BMW didn’t do anything radical with the redesign for the 2023 X1, but it did more than enough to push the SUV toward the top of the subcompact pack. The X1 still follows BMW’s trend of offering spunky cars that are fun to drive, but the SUV is upscale, high-tech, and roomy. All great qualities for a small SUV.

In contrast, the Volvo XC40 has more distinctive styling than the X1, features a practical cabin, comes with a mild-hybrid system, and has an upscale interior.

Another great option in the class is the Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class. It’s one of the few options that’s available with three rows of seating, is available with high-tech features, a performance-oriented AMG model, and a large cargo area.
