2018 BMW X1 review: Our expert's take


What it is: The BMW X1 small SUV has styling in line with its larger X5 sibling; it wears the brand's large, upright dual-kidney grille, as well as standard LED daytime running lights and optional LED headlights. Pronounced fender flares add to its muscular look, and competitors include the Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.


The X1 now has a standard backup camera.

Drives and Feels Premium

Smallest SUV in the range and it still drives confidently. Plenty of power and torque from the turbo 4-cylinder. A very refined ride. Interior appointments remind you that you’ve bought a quality car.

New Owner of BMWX1

Its too soon to know about reliability but the performance is outstanding. It maneuvers beautifully in city traffic as well as interstate driving. It is quiet and feels put together well.

Gebhardt is like family!

Great car and experience. Nice to do business with a family run business who have been around for a long time in Boulder. Will be back!
