Find Out Why the 2017 BMW X1 Reigns Supreme Among Compact Luxury CUVs

Compact crossovers are so popular that even automakers who didn’t make utility vehicles previously are getting into the game. But in the luxury segment, the 2017 BMW X1 is the one to beat. Reviewers have named it class-leading for its winning combination of agile performance, vast cargo space, and luxurious appointments.

Like the rest of its utility vehicles, BMW bills the X1 as a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) to underscore its combination of performance and versatility. In this case, its ability to carry cargo is class-topping with 27 cu-ft of cargo room with the seats up, and 59 cu-ft with them folded. That’s 10 cu-ft more than the nearest German competitor in each category. Furthermore, the X1 offers exhilarating performance thanks to a 228-hp engine, and a suspension feel that’s firm for fun, but soft enough to absorb all but the nastiest of potholes.
