The BMW X1
The Exit Strategist.
2017 BMW X1 Performance and Fuel Economy
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 2017 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 2017 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.
2017 BMW X1 Interior Features
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 2017 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.
2017 BMW X1 Safety Ratings
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 2017 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 2017 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.
