The 2020 X1's exterior has been tweaked to fall more in line with its larger siblings like the X3 and X5. This includes a sculpted look to the grille and new tinted LED taillights. There are also fresh wheel designs and paint choices.
Inside, the previously optional 8.8-in infotainment touchscreen becomes standard. And a new gear selector signifies an updated 8-speed automatic transmission. See the 2020 BMW X1 models for sale near you
It depends on local conditions (or the expectation of epic road trips) whether all-wheel drive (AWD) is worth the extra $2,000. It will come down to personal taste whether the stiffer suspension of the M Sport package is desirable. If the xDrive28i is the ideal choice, then consider the Premium package with the heated front seats and heated steering wheel. Find a BMW X1 for sale

2020 Audi Q3 -- New for 2020. Not as engaging to drive as the X1, but refined and roomy.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class -- Reasonably priced, offering a lot of equipment and a decent turbocharged engine. Due for replacement, however.
2020 Lexus UX -- Well-built, well-equipped, well-priced and relatively spacious. Enthusiasts will prefer to stick with the BMW, though.
2020 Volvo XC40 -- Attractive, practical and keenly priced.
Used BMW X3 -- For more power, space and performance, consider an X3. Naturally, new vehicle prices are higher, but a used or certified pre-owned (CPO) model could suit the budget and perhaps bring more equipment.
