Review: BMW X1 sDrive18d XLine

You can tell how much a brand values its name by how much thought is put into the details of every product that is produced. Consistency is key, especially when it comes to the standard of quality, starting with design, engineering, and of course, the final make. Not only should the final output look great, the attention to detail regarding construction should be impeccable. This characteristic is what sets BMW apart from other luxury car brands.

Review: 2017 BMW X1 xDrive20d xLine

The moment you lay your eyes on the 2017 X1, you know there’s something not quite right with it. You rub your eyes for a second and stare again: the proportions are out of whack for a BMW. The long hood, short deck associated with the “Ultimate Driving Machine” has been swapped with something that’s stubby and MPV-ish. You pop the hood and see that the engine’s oriented the “wrong way” too—transversely rather than longitudinally. Is BMW mad? Have they lost the plot or is this an April Fool’s prank played several months too late?

First Drive: 2017 BMW X1 xDrive20d xLINE

There’s a big shift going on at BMW. After its first front-wheel drive offering, the 2 Series Active Tourer, here comes a compact crossover built atop the same platform: the second-generation X1. In as much as the 2 Series Active Tourer left enthusiasts scratching their heads discomfortingly, it’s more of a niche vehicle. That’s not the case with the X1. Moving some 730,000 examples in the past 7 years, it’s become an important part of BMW’s X family. They, therefore, cannot afford to get this one wrong.

5 Reasons Why the 2017 BMW X1 is the Ultimate Urban All-Rounder

BMW created a stir when they created the Sport Activity Vehicle or SAV segment in 1999. At the same, premium SUVs were great to drive off the road, but not really good on it. The SAV broke that mold, offering BMW’s famed driving dynamics with a body style the world loved. The BMW X1 is the smallest among them all, and since the second-generation model arrives, here are 5 reasons why it’s the ultimate urban all-rounder.

Review: 2013 BMW X1 sDrive118d xLine

Photos by Ulysses Ang
As the first premium compact crossover, the BMW X1 was the trailblazer of the segment. After some three and a half years, sales have already exceeded 300,000 units worldwide. Of course, competitors have arrived and now, the X1 responds with a well-timed nip-tuck to meet a raft of new challengers. With its specially modified body design, upgraded interior, new range of BMW Lines, and new equipment, the BMW X1 delivers a more intense experience.

A Play Date with the 2013 BMW X1

Photos by Ulysses Ang
It began almost two weeks ago with the most “humble” of invites: a black box with the words “BMW X1: Let’s Play” printed on it. Receiving a three-dimensional, non-paper invite already made me feel special, but once I got to peek inside, it made it say, “Oh my god”. There it was, in all its glory, a brand-new BlackBerry Z10 (well, half of the participants received an Apple iPhone 5). It came with the strict instructions that it was to be returned after the drive, and yet, this made me feel like a million bucks. And this was just the appetizer.
