Utility With a Quick Pulse: Five Reasons the 2017 BMW X1 is Worth Your Attention

By blending sport sedan performance with versatile, luxurious utility, BMW Sports Activity Vehicles (SAVs) make for a winning alternative to many other SUVs. The same can be said for the Bavarian car maker’s compact entry—the 2017 X1. Although the only model in its stable with front-wheel drive, it nails utility, space, and fun factor.

The thrilling and engaging driving experience found in all other BMW models is just as impressive in the X1. Standard fair on all models is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four making 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Peak twist kicks in at 1,250 rpm and stays relatively flat throughout the rev range—the perfect recipe for fun—and sDrive28i models get 23/32 mpg on the city/highway, while xDrive28i models get 22/31 mpg. The interior of the X1 is attractive and well-appointed, with a 6.5-inch standard touch screen, push button ignition, and phone connectivity. For cargo carrying, the rear seats fold down for a max 58.7 cu-ft of cargo capacity.
