BMW is exceptionally adept at building vehicles that occupy the intersection of multiple value points. The 2018 BMW X1 is a testament to this, perfectly balancing design savvy, luxuriousness, safety and performance in a one-of-its-kind Sports Activity Vehicle®.
The look you know and love
The 2018 BMW X1 is unmistakably an expression of what makes the brand synonymous with the Ultimate Driving Machine®. The X1 is sleek and finessed, its profile enhanced by bold body lines and its face anchored by BMW’s distinctive kidney grilles. With the 2018 BMW X1, you can decide between an xLINE or M SPORT body style; the former marked by satin aluminum bumper accents and rocker panels, the latter with Shadowline exterior trim and a bolder and more aerodynamic lower grille.
Interior comfort and functionality
Luxury and sharp looks carry over into the BMW X1’s interior, which delivers supple materials and sumptuous stitching, as well as your preferred choice of upholsteries and lavish trims. Perhaps the greatest assets the X1 interior has at its disposal are comfort and versatility — albeit compact in size, the BMW X1 offers 39.4 inches of rear headroom and 58.7 cubic feet of max cargo space with the rear seats folded flat.
Safety features you can count on
Helping to preserve your sense of comfort behind the wheel of the 2018 BMW X1 are numerous advanced safety features. In addition to standard BMW eCall™, which includes Emergency Request and Enhanced Automatic Collision Notification, BMW’s optional Driving Assistance Package adds to your peace of mind with Active Driving Assistant — a suite of technologies that includes Lane Departure Warning, Frontal Collision Warning and City Collision Mitigation. The Driving Assistance Package also includes automatic high beams and Speed Limit Info, which help to keep you more attuned to the road ahead.
Performance you can expect
BMW’s performance prowess is well regarded by drivers the world over, and the 2018 BMW X1 lives up to that expectation with its 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder. This lightweight and efficient engine delivers 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque while returning up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway*, serving to make the X1 as capable as it is beautiful. With xDrive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, you benefit from the added assurance of having the most traction and control possible even in inclement weather and on adverse terrains.
The 2018 BMW X1 synthesizes what drivers want and need the most, resulting in a devilishly good-looking Sports Activity Vehicle® that drives like a dream and keeps you in comfort while you command the road.
