Reviewers and Drivers Agree: The 2017 BMW X1 Leads the Compact Luxury SUV Class

There are many votes in favor of the 2017 BMW X1, especially if you’re overwhelmed by the choices in the compact luxury SUV market. Right off the bat, there are several qualities that set this model apart. One is that it’s not an SUV at all, but a SAV (that’s BMW for “Sports Activity Vehicle”). Another is that in spite of its performance emphasis, it’s cargo abilities and sporty demeanor are class-leading.

Those aren’t our words. They come from not one, but two industry-leading publications. You can catch Autotrader’s vote of confidence in the video above. On the other hand, Car and Driver put the 2017 X1 through its rigorous testing gauntlet and came away heralding it as the new segment leader. Their reasons involved the X1’s spacious cabin, which can easily accommodate five adults and 27 cu-ft of cargo, or 59 with the rear row folded. They also praised the turbocharged inline-four’s 228 horsepower for its addictive acceleration, while also giving high marks to its fun-factor: when it comes to corners, few other utilities can sink its claws in and hold on like the X1.
