The 2017 BMW X1 redesign brings about an even better spirited performance, and a spacious interior accommodation. It may lack athleticism as most of its rivals, but it sure is a strong contender and practical. The BMW X1 release date should be expected sometime in the second quarter of 2017.
Moreover, the BMW X1 2017 offers a laudable fuel economy rating, smooth and strong four-cylinder engine, a high-quality interior with improved dimensions, and tons of standard features. If you’ve been shopping for an entry-level BMW crossover, chances are that you’ve probably come across the BMW X1. One striking feature that endears the X1 to most shoppers perhaps is its affordability among a ton of other features.
Although the BMW X1 was a great fun to drive vehicle, it played second fiddle to other vehicles in its class in terms of functionality. The 2017 BMW X1, however, is redesigned and offers ample leg- and headroom for the backseat passengers. This alone is enough reason why the X1 deserves a second chance on your shopping list.
The BMW X1 uses a front-wheel drive architecture as opposed to the rear-wheel drive one that has been in use ever since its debut in the market. The 2017 BMW X1 interior is spacious and chock full of upscale technologies. The cabin materials are nicer than before. Some of the technologies include a heads-up display, pedestrian detection, frontal collision system, and blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert system.
Some of the alternatives in this class include the Lexus NX 200t, Mercedes-Benz GLA250, 2017 Audi Q3, and the 2017 Acura RDX.
The 2017 Acura RDX price starts from an MSRP of $35,370 and for that you get plenty of convenience, entertainment, and comfort features for the money. Some of the Acura RDX specs include a power output of 279 horsepower @6,200 rpm and 252 pounds-feet of torque @4,900 rpm. EPA estimates its fuel economy to stand at 20/28/34 mpg in the city/highway/combined.
The 2017 Lexus NX 200t MSRP starts from $34,945 and for that you get features like an impeccable cabin construction, smooth and quiet engine, copious high-tech gadgetry, and a generous backseat room. However, its limited cargo volume is still a point for concern for many shoppers looking for a family-oriented compact luxury SUV.
