The 2019 BMW X1 is a high-performance vehicle that has style and versatility. As a Sports Activity Vehicle, or SAV, it's equally at home on city streets or up in the mountains. For this model year, more driver-assistive safety features are included. There's also more advanced technology built into the X1, with Apple CarPlay and remote services being available.
Options on the 2019 BMW X1
Depending on what a driver prefers, there's the opportunity to either get an X1 with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The front-wheel drive, the X1 sDrive 28i, uses a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine. With four cylinders and 16 valves, it can output 228 horsepower.
The alternative is the X1 xDrive 28i, a model that has all-wheel drive. It uses the same engine and is paired with the same eight-speed automatic transmission. With this STEPTRONIC transmission, drivers can use Sport and Manual shift modes if they want more excitement.
On the X1 sDrive 28i, the ride is smooth and safe thanks to gas-pressure shock absorbers and stabilizer bars in the front and rear. An electronic stability system can assist with controlling the brakes. On the xDrive, there is also a feature called Hill Descent Control, which can be key when traveling on steep downhills.
Outside the 2019 BMW X1
Halogen fog lights and headlights can light things up when the visibility is low. Roof rails are included for more storage options, and they're coated in a satin aluminum that looks sleek against the exterior paint. Likewise, chrome exterior trim serves to highlight the aggressive yet elegant stance of the vehicle, and chrome tailpipe finishers add a bit of a flourish to the rear. The car comes straight from the factory with run-flat tires that can work all year and 18" wheels.
Keeping People Comfortable
The SensaTec upholstery on the seats is soft and easy to maintain. Both seats in front can be adjusted in eight different ways. For convenience, the driver's seat can be programmed to a set position, and even the mirror can be as well. If there are multiple people getting behind the wheel, this feature can save some time, just like the push-button start feature does.
Several upgrades are available on the 2019 BMW X1. All of the seats can come with leather, the front seats can be heated, and the back seats can be built in a way that allows them to slide and recline. Additionally, a moonroof is available for those who love to feel the sun shine.
Behind the second row of seating is 27.1 cubic feet of cargo space. Since the SAV includes a power liftgate on all models, the back can be opened up quickly, even if someone has their hands full. The rear seats come in a 40/20/40 configuration, so there are more ways to set up the space if large or bulky things need to be transported. With the back seats down, the storage space expands to 58.7 cubic feet.
Technology on the 2019 BMW X1
The iDrive infotainment system is standard on the X1. It's run through a 6.5" touchscreen and comes with navigation. With Apple CarPlay, smartphone integration can be seamless.
Voice commands can allow drivers to stay focused on the road, and there are other ways to make adjustments and set things up. The touchscreen is precisely calibrated and is well organized, and there are controls mounted on the steering wheel. An additional touchpad on the rotary knob can recognize handwriting. This can be useful when entering in an address or point of interest before receiving turn-by-turn directions.
Music can come from a variety of sources, including a smartphone, traditional AM/FM stations, and HD radio. Wiring is included if anyone wants to install a SiriusXM Satellite tuner. The standard audio system has seven speakers, and there's an available 12-speaker Harman Kardon system that can be included instead. Additionally, the touchscreen can come in a larger version - at 8.8 inches - and the car can be set up to be a Wi-Fi hot spot.
The X1 comes with the ability to set up BMW remote services. When the proper app is downloaded, the car can be locked and unlocked remotely. A key benefit of this program is that the vehicle's location can be pinpointed on a map; this can be helpful when parked on busy city streets. If a visual or audio signal is preferred, a driver can honk the horn and/or flash the lights through the app to identify where the X1 is parked.
Safety is a Priority
When building the X1, BMW made sure to take advantage of technological features that can aid drivers. All models of the 2019 BMW X1 come with a rearview camera and windshield wipers that can automatically turn on or off. They also all include a system to assist with parking; it can indicate distances between the X1 and other vehicles so minor bumps can be avoided.
To prevent accidents, there are several built-in mechanisms intended to detect potential issues and alert the driver accordingly. The sensors can send out warnings if it appears like a driver is about to hit an object in front of it, veer out of a lane, or hit something behind it while it's in reverse.
In the case of an impact, the X1 can automatically disengage the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and turn on the interior lights for better illumination. At the same time, the hazard lights will turn on.
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.
