All-New BMW X1 Outshines Its Predecessor

The second-generation BMW X1 has replaced the raised wagon appearance of its predecessor for a proper SUV look. That may be good thing, as SUV buyers want their steed to look the part, too.

Another good thing that derives from the new shape is the fact that rear seat passengers have more headroom and legroom than before.

Carbuyer’s Mat Watson says he would rather travel a long distance in the back of the new X1 than in a BMW 3-Series because it’s less claustrophobic thanks to the big windows and taller roof.

Interior quality is worthy of the premium badge, as is the standard equipment. So how does it drive? Well, since it’s based on BMW Group’s new UKL1 front-wheel drive architecture, it doesn’t feel as as grippy as the old X1. But as Watson points out, no one will really care because very few owners will take it off-road. And while it feels slightly less sporty to drive on road than its predecessor, most people won’t feel the difference.
