This car makes it rain!

Meet the new BMW X1!

It’s the entry-level SUV in BMW’s line-up, and Mat’s about to find out if it’s the must-have choice compared to other premium small SUVs.

For starters, this may be the smallest BMW SUV around, but it’s seemingly grown in size compared to the previous edition. If anything, it looks more like an X3! There have been a number of other design changes too, from a bigger grille up front and a redesigned front and rear bumper. There are a number of other, smaller touches as well, including flush door handles on either side.

Step inside and just like any BMW, you’re treated to a high-quality interior. There are good quality, soft-touch materials across the dash and the top of the doors, and the centre console is comfortable and well laid out. There’s lots of storage to be found throughout the cabin, and the infotainment screen & digital dials are pretty smart, too. Overall it’s a pretty good experience in the X1, although there are some annoying bits of plastic to be found on the steering wheel!

There are a couple of petrol and diesel engines to choose from, with the range-topper currently a 2-litre turbo petrol that can deliver 218hp. However, there’s more choice coming in the future, including two plug-in hybrids as well as an all-electric edition, the iX1!

The BMW X1 starts from around £34,000 for the entry-level, but is it worth it? Stick with Mat and see for yourself!
