Editor's Overview

BMW’s 2017 X1 compact-luxury SUV may be the company’s smallest offering, but it is no less luxurious or capable than its larger X3 and X5 siblings. Blending the performance characteristics of a BMW 3 Series with the high ride height and AWD abilities of an SUV, the X1 is the do-it-all vehicle for an enthusiast on a budget.

Great at everything from comfort to performance.

The problems are nothing, it's a great car. The overall performance is great too because for me I have 100, 000 miles on it and it has never broke down for me. Its reliability is nice like I said it's never broke down for me. The comfort on the car is great for my edition it's got nice soft leather that will want you to sleep in the car every night.

The X1 gets great gas mileage both around town and on the highway.

I love the gas mileage that the X1 gets even though it has to use premium gasoline. It rides smoothly. I love the capability of synching my phone to be able to talk in the car. It has so many technical accessories that I don't even know how to use them all, but I love it! The sunroof is great too!

BMW review for the purchase of a vehicle or leasing a car.

This vehicle was a great purchase and it is a very comfortable and reliable car. The only thing is parts and tires are very expensive to fix so please get tire insurance and extended warranty if possible. This will significantly reduce the amount of money you spend on this car in the long run.
