What's New for the 2018 BMW X1?
The new X1 carries over from the 2017 model year virtually unchanged, except for the standard rearview camera that's been added to all trims. BMW's ConnectedDrive concierge app is also a standard feature. The Chestnut Bronze exterior is no longer available, but drivers can opt for the new Sunset Orange Metallic.
Trims and Features
The BMW X1 comes in just one trim for 2018: the sDrive28i, which features seating for up to five on plush synthetic leather upholstery, with plenty of room even for adults in the backseat. With best in class cargo space of more than 27 cubic feet and 58.7 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down, the 2018 BMW X1 is the subcompact luxury SUV of choice for weekenders. The 60/40/60 split-folding rear seat allows for several versatile cargo and passenger configurations.
Standard tech includes a rearview camera, push-button start, power liftgate, smart windshield wipers, and a 6.5-inch infotainment display with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, HD radio, and a seven-speaker sound system. Optional upgrades, available both in packages and individually, include a sliding and reclining second row, genuine leather upholstery, ambient lighting, a wireless hotspot, Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, and a premium 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Choose the M Sport Design package to enjoy sport-tuned suspension, a distinctive body style, cushioned sport seats, and aluminum inlays.
This car is a great pick for anyone who wants the dynamic driving experience of a sporty vehicle compared with the utility of an SUV. The turbo-four paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission offers the spirited drive of 228 horses. You'll get an EPA-estimated 23 city/32 highway miles per gallon. Front-wheel drive is standard but all-wheel drive is available as an upgrade. You can also customize your ride via three selectable drive modes. Reviewers praise the 2018 BMW X1's engaging road manners and precise steering, not to mention the impressive 6.6 second zero-to-60 time reported by Car and Driver. Their testing also revealed that the X1 displays the best cornering ability in this category.
The 2018 BMW X1 hasn't yet been crash tested, but it is expected to meet or exceed the 2017 model's Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick designation. Drivers who want to benefit from the state-of-the-art assistance systems offered by BMW can choose from high-tech safety options that include parking sensors, adaptive cruise control that can even be used in stop and go traffic, collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, head-up display with traffic sign information, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base BMW X1 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All BMW X1 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
