BMW X1 LeaseRead More
The BMW X1 is a small SUV with a premium feel, and it’s no surprise that this is one of BMW’s most popular cars. It’s only the second generation of the car, but huge improvements have been made over the first one, and it’s a better all-round driving experience.
There are lots of diesel engines to choose from as well as a turbocharged 2-litre petrol engine. Four-wheel drive is available if you want, and while it is not too smooth on rougher roads, it still performs well. Steering is precise, body roll is minimal on the corners, and while there is slight wind noise there is not much.
The driving position is very good, and visibility is excellent. It’s a spacious car despite being a small SUV, and the interior is classy throughout with leather upholstery and chrome touches everywhere. It also boasts an excellent infotainment system with DAB radio included and a 6.5-inch touchscreen. While this isn’t huge, it is easy to operate because it comes with a rotary dial.
It also has multiple airbags, emergency assist, an engine immobiliser and other safety tech to ensure a safe drive.
