Editor's Overview

The 2015 X1 is the smallest among BMW's expanding line of X model crossover SUVs, which are more oriented to on-road performance than off-road shenanigans. With powerful engine choices, great handling and a starting price just under $32,000, the X1 is a tempting step up to the luxury realm from mainstream compact SUVs such as the Honda CR-V.

Love the interior but the music system is archaic.

The music system is archaic. There is no Bluetooth music streaming capability, which had I realized, I would not have purchased! I use a cord to connect my phone, which makes me feel a decade behind. I love the cold weather package. Heated leather is great this time of year! The car handles well.

- Mina M

Great color. Love the panoramic sunroof. Have a great space to put all my stuff.

I love the space that brings to me. The comfort (heat on wheel drive). I take the car the color that I love. The miles per gallons that give the SUV are grate and my fuel last more than a week. Something that I don't love is that I can't turn the car on without be on it.

- Anais D

Very comfortable and good safety rating.

Great rearview camera and cold weather features such as heated seats and steering wheel. The panorama moonroof is another great feature for nice sunny days. Sometimes the Bluetooth is temperamental and will not connect to my phone without having to change some settings.
