2020 BMW X1 Overview

BMW's smallest crossover, the X1, gets a major update for 2020. It competes against the Audi Q3, Lexus NX, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, and Volvo XC60.

BMW updated the X1’s face to match that of its larger X3, X5, and X7 siblings. It features an enlarged grille, daytime-running lights (DRL), and a new bumper. At the back, it sports a new pair of tinted taillights and wider tailpipes. Other niceties in BMW’s bag of tricks include a new two-tone “X1” welcome projection and contrast dashboard stitching. Finally, you can pick from three new paint colors: Storm Bay Metallic, Jucaro Beige, and Misano Blue Metallic.

The sole engine for the X1 is the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that makes 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It pairs with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The standard sDrive28i package gets you front-wheel drive (FWD), while the xDrive28i package comes with all-wheel drive (AWD). The sDrive28i hits 60 mph in 6.6 seconds while the xDrive28i does it in 6.3 seconds. While there are no official fuel-economy figures yet for 2020, last year’s model maxed out at 22 mpg city, 32 highway, and 26 combined with premium fuel.

The 2020 X1 includes some new standard options, including a larger 8.8-inch infotainment system with navigation and Apple CarPlay. Other standard features include a power liftgate, a sport leather steering wheel, leatherette interior, and power front seats. Optional features include 19-inch wheels, keyless start, Dakota leather, LED headlights with cornering, a premium sound system, wireless-device charging, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a garage-door opener, power-folding mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, and ambient lighting.

Standard safety features include lane-departure warning, pedestrian warning with braking, frontal-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, in-car speed-limit information, a reversing camera, parking sensors, and automatic high beams. The only safety options are a parking assistant and adaptive cruise control.

The 2020 BMW X1 remains an attractive entry in the luxury subcompact crossover field.
