best luxury compact suv

From this autumn, the family of BMW X models will welcome its newest member, the X1 compact crossover SUV, fitting neatly under the larger X3, X5 and X6 brothers. For the United States, the X1 is expected to arrive in calendar year 2011.

Targeted to a younger audience, the new BMW X1 compact proportions should give it the agility and versatility of compact cars (C-segment, lower medium) with the technical substance of a modern premium vehicle made by the largest luxury cars manufacturer in the world.

The X1 body is 4.45 metres (175.2″) long, which is significantly longer than the other 1 Series models (4.24 metre / 166.9” for the 3- and 5- door bodies, or 4.36 metre / 171.7” in the 1 Series coupe and convertible). Quite logically, it remains shorter than the 4.57 metres 1.79.9” of the larger X3 brother.

In wheelbase terms, the X1 enjoys a rather long dimension for the compact segment (2.76 metres /108.7”). It is equal to the 3 Series wheelbase (the X1 is a variation of the 3 Series platform), significantly longer than the wheelbase of the 1 Series models (2.66 metres / 104.7”) and slightly shorter than the 2.79 metres /110” wheelbase of the X3 (More about the main exterior and interior dimensions of the new BMW X1).

On the practical side, the rear seat comes with an adjustable backrest (for angle) and folds down in a 40/20/20 split, extending the luggage compartment capacity from its original 420 litres to a maximum of 1,350 litres. Above the 5 passengers, an electrically operated Panorama glass roof is available as an option.

Depending on the model variant, the X1 proposes gasoline and diesel engines, rear-wheel drive (sDrive versions) or all-wheel-drive technology (xDrive), as well as a range of BMW EfficientDynamics features including Brake Energy Regeneration, Auto Start Stop, and a gearshift point indicator.

Standard features include three-point inertia-reel seat belts all round, frontal and side airbags as well as head airbags at the side, adaptive Brake Lights and daytime driving lights. Options include Xenon headlights, Adaptive Headlights and a High-Beam Assistant.

X1 active safety equipments include high-precision power steering (rack-and-pinion), high-performance brakes, Dynamic Stability Control including Dynamic Traction Control and, as an option, Performance Control acting on the brakes.

In conjunction with the optional Business and Professional navigation systems, the X1 is equipped with the latest generation of BMW iDrive including a Controller and direct selection buttons on the centre console, a Control Display integrated in the instrument panel, and favourite buttons beneath the control panel for the standard air conditioning.

Sophisticated HiFi systems are available as an alternative to the audio system fitted as standard, and the AUX-In port likewise featured as standard may be supplemented by a USB interface. Optional driver assistance systems and a wide range of BMW ConnectedDrive services are also available with the new model.

The X1 will be launched with the following engine and transmission variants:
