What's New in the 2015 BMW X1?

The X1 soldiers on with no significant changes. 

Which X1 is the Best?

We love BMW's turbocharged inline-6, but since it comes with the lesser transmission and costs more, we'd opt for the attractively priced sDrive28i instead, or for the xDrive28i if we needed all-wheel drive. Find a BMW X1 for sale


How Much Does a 2015 BMW X1 Cost?

The 2015 BMW X1 is offered with rear-wheel drive as the 4-cylinder sDrive28i, or it's offered with all-wheel drive as either the 4-cylinder xDrive28i or the 6-cylinder xDrive35i.

The sDrive28i ($32,150) has standard niceties such as 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, LED brake lights, automatic start/stop, 8-way manually adjustable front seats, Bluetooth, automatic climate control, an 8-speaker stereo with iPod/USB connectivity and even the iDrive infotainment system. It's pretty well equipped right out of the box.

The xDrive28i ($33,950) is an all-wheel-drive version of the sDrive28i with minor equipment variations.

The xDrive35i ($40,050) steps up to 6-cylinder power, 18-in wheels with run-flat tires, adaptive xenon headlights with LED accents, a panoramic sunroof, power front seats with driver memory functions and premium interior inlays.

Some of the xDrive35i model's standard features can be ordered on the 28i models as options. Other extras include a Harman Kardon surround-sound stereo, heated front seats, leather upholstery, paddle shifters and enhanced iDrive with a larger display screen and hard-drive-based navigation.

Note that four trim levels are offered for each model: base, X Line, Sport Line and M Sport Line. The X Line adds special 18-in wheels and shiny styling accents, while the Sport Line features its own 18-inchers, along with darker exterior trim and sport front seats. The M Sport has a sport-tuned suspension, a body kit, M-spec 18-in wheels, a sport steering wheel, sport front seats and plenty of M badges to go around.

2015 BMW X1 vs the competition

2015 Audi Q5 -- The generally sprightly Q5 feels large and a bit ponderous relative to the X1, but it's a great-looking crossover with a desirable supercharged V6.

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque -- The Evoque's avant-garde styling has grown on us, and it has a more convincingly upscale interior.

2015 MINI Cooper Countryman -- If you like MINI's sense of style and can make do with even less cargo capacity, the eye-catching, athletic Countryman is worth a look.

Used BMW X3 -- BMW's certified pre-owned warranty gives you peace of mind, and depreciation can deliver the larger, more capable X3 to your driveway for the same price as a new X1.
