The BMW X1 crossover is built on the front-wheel-drive Mini platform, which technically makes it a subcompact crossover, but it appears much bigger than that because of its height.
The X1 was redesigned for 2016, and for 2017 front-wheel-drive was offered in addition to all-wheel drive. For 2018, a rearview camera is added as standard equipment, and some optional packages have changed.
The BMW X1 uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, mated to a paddle-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. It's really quick, maybe the best thing about it, with strong power for passing.
