2017 BMW X1

Buyer's Guide

BMW's compact CUV, the X1 was all-new for 2016, so there are no big changes for this year. It's based on a front-drive platform, unlike the rear drive platform used on every other BMW in our market. But unless you're planning on driving the X1 to 10/10ths or on the track it's probably not something you'll ever notice. What you might notice is that the platform means that none of BMW's legendary inline sixes will make an appearance. That's ok, because the 2.0L turbocharged four is no slouch, making 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It's a tough market with the Audi Q3, Lexus NX, Range Rover Evoque, and Mercedes GLA all being fairly recently updated themselves, but the BMW offers more space than the NX, Q3, and GLA, and is much cheaper than the Evoque. It offers good performance, BMW handling, a high seating position, and lots of luxury.

The X1 comes in one trim, X1 xDrive28i. It has all-wheel drive and an eight-speed auto as the only transmission choice. Standard features include adaptive LED headlights, power adjustable heated front seats, rear parking sensors with camera, radar cruise control, and a HiFi sound system with twin subwoofers. An M Sport model offers 19-inch wheels, a choice of interior trims, an M body kit, M sport leather wheel and variable assist steering. The Executive package changes the interior to full perforated leather, in your choice of five colours, and adds lane departure control, collision warning, drive assist, self parking, and an upgraded Harman Kardon stereo.

The Premium pack essential adds panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel, sport seats, power tailgate, and proximity keyless entry. Premium package enhanced adds those plus a head-up display, satellite radio, and navigation. Finally, a Sport package adds 19-inch wheels, variable rate steering, and paddle shifters.

The BMW X1 is rated to get 10.7 L/100 km city, 7.4 highway.

2010 BMW X1

My super Car
What do you define as not expensive?
A good starter car, price category is about $5000.
You can still get a similar Jetta for that price.
Somewhere along 1999 and 2000.
It's almost the same car but the one you would buy would have high kilometers and would totally drain your wallet with repairs.
Now, sticking to that price category, you have to decide what you want.
If you want something that is reliable and economical, buy a Honda Civic.
If you are a car lover, buy a 1993-1997 BMW 3 series.
Honda is reliable and economical, BMW is great to drive.
The jetta is awesome too.
Test drive those 3 cars.
The BMW 3 series,
The Honda Civic,
and the VW Jetta.
All old, the BMW and VW better to drive, but not so reliable.
The Civic being DULL but reliable.
Whatever you want, take your choice.
I hope I helped.
