2013 BMW X1
2013 BMW X1

New For 2013

The X1 is not an all-new model (it’s been out elsewhere since 2009), but it is brand-new to the U.S. market. It’s smaller than an X3, and it’s the least expensive BMW you can buy, undercutting the 1-series coupe by a couple hundred dollars.

Overview

BMW has been talking about bringing its subcompact X1 SUV to America for years, but strong demand in other markets kept the X1 from our shores. Now it’s finally here. Perhaps as compensation for waiting, we’re getting one version you can’t buy elsewhere: the six-cylinder xDrive35i. It comes with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic. Although it’s the quickest X1, it’s also the thirstiest. We prefer the xDrive28i, which uses BMW’s excellent direct-injected, 2.0-liter turbo four. Its 260 lb-ft of torque nearly equal the six-cylinder’s 300 lb-ft, and acceleration to 60 mph is just a tick behind. Auto stop/start helps the 28i achieve better fuel economy in the city, and an eight-speed automatic transmission helps make it more efficient on the highway. There’s a rear-wheel-drive version of the X1, the sDrive28i. It uses the same turbo four and gets even better mileage (33 mpg on the highway). Unfortunately, it alone among the X1 variants has numb, electric power steering, which is anathema to a true BMW. For those who aren’t bothered by that, the sDrive28i is the lowest-priced BMW you can buy—although its standard-equipment list is lacking. Actually, all versions of the X1 are less expensive than equivalent 1-series, which should make the X1 as popular here as it has been elsewhere.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; traction and stability control; ABS; a tire-pressure monitor; and hill-descent control are standard. Rear- and sideview cameras and lane-departure warning are available. Xenon adaptive headlamps are included on the 35i and are optional on the 28i. BMW Assist is optional.

You'll like:

  • Bargain price
  • Rear- or four-wheel drive

You won't like:

  • Expected luxuries are optional
  • xDrive35i not much cheaper than an X3

Comparison: 2013 Buick Encore AWD vs. BMW X1 xDrive28i
Premium subcompact crossovers, already popular in Europe, look to be heading en masse to the North American market. Making their rounds of the U.S. auto show circuit are, for example, the Mercedes-Benz GLA-class and its hot AMG variant, the Audi Q3, and the soon-to-be-produced Infiniti Q30 concept. These crossoversoffer much of the practicality that's made crossovers of all sizes so popular -- tons of useable space, a high seating position, versatility, and a modicum of rough road capability (Don't even think about going off-road: all-wheel-drive is included only as a favor to Snowbelt buyers and in recognition that shoppers expect crossovers to power both axles.) But what premium subcompact crossovers promise that larger, generally cheaper compact crossovers like the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape cannot is prestige. Think of it as the perfect vehicle for a hip, young, well-educated couple and their newborn's Maclaren stroller as they fight for parking space in Brooklyn's Williamsburg -- and in all the Williamsburgs in metro areas across the nation.

German Carmakers Look to Wind, Gas Power Plants as Nuclear Wind-Down Accelerates
Energy independence has long been a political buzz-phrase in the United States, with each party offering its own version of what that means. But for Germany's automakers, one of the country's largest industrial sectors, it's a present and urgent reality. Following the nuclear disaster in Japan following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, chancellor Angela Merkel pledged to de-commission the country's nuclear power plants.

First Drive: 2013 BMW X1
So you'd love a small BMW but don't like the 1-series' impractical coupe body? You fancy yourself young and sophisticated and would buy a 135i if you could just get it in chic hot-hatch form? Well, we have good news: come this fall, you can get a subcompact 1-series hatchback with either four- or six-cylinder firepower. Even better news: it's cheaper than the 1-series coupe.
