2017 BMW X1 Is A Small And Nimble Crossover That Gets The Job Done
Crossovers are the new sensation for the auto industry. Many crossovers are coming out. One of the smallest would be the 2017 BMW X1. However, even if it small, it is a nimble crossover that gets the job done.
The BMW X1 is the smallest crossover created by the company. In recent years, crossovers are becoming an important segment of the auto industry. Crossovers are popular since they blend the size of a sedan with the durability and cross-country ability of an SUV.
The 2017 X1 will retain the engine that has first come out in the 2016 version. That means having a turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder engine. For the M Sports package, it would also include upgraded suspensions. Sports seats are also available as an option for it.
For its transmission, the BMW X1 has an eight-speed automatic one. It is a quick, little crossover that can go to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds, which is fast. It is a front-wheel-drive crossover, though a four-wheel version is an option.
The X1 though would be lacking when it comes to its interior. The seats have been noted to be uncomfortable after some time, according to Car and Driver. There is also a lack luxury features, which would be rare for BMW.
The rear seats provide much space, as noted by Motor Trend, Overall though the interior has been found to be lacking. What redeems it somewhat is that it gives much headroom even for something quite small. Front legroom though leaves much to be desired for tall people.
Where the BMW X1 shines is in its handling. It handles corners very well. Fuel economy would vary according to driving style and habit. For its exterior, it is a compact crossover which has been described as having a subtle appearance to it.
The BMW X1 is a small and compact crossover. While it might have its detractions, overall it is a nimble crossover that gets its job done. The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is elegant for a hybrid car, as shown earlier in a report.
