The 2021 BMW X1 is a well-executed premium subcompact crossover and among the better choices in its class. It looks all set to carry on as one of BMW’s overall best-sellers. Only the X3 and X5 find more customers in the United States, while global sales of the X1 push it to the company’s top spot.
It has that highly prized elevated seating position set into a vehicle whose size is just right for many buyers. The rest of the X1 conforms to BMW’s usual lofty standards, with quality materials and excellent ergonomics.
