BMW created the first unibody premium sport utility vehicle with the mid-sized X5 in 1999, and has since expanded its fun-to-drive, all-road capable line-up downwards to the X3 in 2003, and then the X1 in 2012.
The All-New 2016 BMW X1 is the Munich-based automaker's most value-priced SUV and is a great starting point into the brand for small families or active couples looking for a luxury vehicle that is engaging, versatile, and compact enough to squeeze into tight downtown Vancouver parking spots without breaking a sweat.
If the 2016 BMW X1's mix of higher driving position, easy step-in height, and choice of luxurious interior appointments is what you're looking for in a compact crossover SUV, check out our huge new and Certified Pre-Owned BMW X1 inventory. You can quickly find the right BMW for you because you can filter out by year, mileage, price, colour, and more.
Although most of BMW's competitors are satisfied fitting their compact SUVs with uninspired powertrains, the X1 is a true performance crossover that starts at only $38,800. The sole engine in the 2016 BMW X1 is the universally lauded 2.0L turbocharged inline-four that produces 241 horsepower and 258 lbs-ft of torque. With that kind of output, the tidy-proportioned 2016 BMW X1 rockets from 0-100 km/h in only 6.5 seconds. But you won't have worry becoming a frequent visitor to the fuel station, even with all that available power, as the xDrive all wheel drive X1 consumes only 7.6 L/100km on the combined city and highway testing cycle.
While it's conventional wisdom (and physics) that small, light vehicles aren't as safe as larger ones, that's certainly not the case with the compact 2016 BMW X1 xDrive 28i. Just ask the white lab coats and their multi-coloured crash test dummies from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety; The 2016 BMW X1 received a Good rating in Moderate Overlap Front, Side, Roof Strength, and Head Restraints and Seats crashworthiness tests. And if you ever happen to be involved in a serious collision or any other emergency, you can press the Advanced Emergency Call button on the overhead console and you will be instantly in-touch with the BMW Assist team. They will automatically notify emergency services of your location and situation when every minute counts.
BMWs have always been cars for drivers. That's why you'll notice that the instrument panel has been designed to curve towards the driver. All the major components like the space-saving electronic transmission selector, infotainment system, and climate controls are all within quick reach. Furthermore, the leather-trimmed steering wheel has a thick rim, a comfortably small diameter, and 3 spoke steering that allow your hands to rest at 9 and 3 o'clock for optimal handling control. But that doesn't mean that the 2016 BMW X1 can't also win over its passenger, too. Sliding open the vast panoramic sunroof will allow all your friends in the second row get a breath of fresh sea air on your next road trip to Tofino.
Looking at your new 2016 BMW X1 in the delivery bay, you may be hard-pressed to find a way to make it even more capable for driving your favourite defensive pairing to hockey practice on those early mornings.
