SUV light

Just like the ! Series' steering, the X1's helm is rather hefty in weight - a hefty steering makes for a nice tool once up to speed but parking and slow speed maneuvers can be a chore if the steering is as heavy as the X1's. The helm is also precise in its responses but it can certainly make do with more feel and feedback.

Thanks to its relatively low ride height and stiffly sprung suspension, unwanted body movements is kept tightly in check. Obviously, the stiff suspension settings come at a price - ride comfort is pretty much lacking as the X1 can thump and bump over road irregularities, potholes and uneven tarmac. At slow, town speeds, the ride can be pretty bone jarring indeed.

The cabin's looks are pretty much inspired by the 1 Series models'. Sitting on top of the dash is a large, useful storage space with a lid. This space is obviously used for a LCD screen for cars that are equipped with iDrive. As expected of a BMW, everything is very driver-centric - the dials are clear and legible even at a glance while the placement of all the switchgear is logical and within reach of the driver. Thankfully, the X1's cabin has a higher level of build quality and perceived luxury compared to regular 1 Series models.

The driver's seat is electrically adjustable but the view out from the vehicle commander's position is far less commanding than it ought to be in an SUV due to the X1's relatively diminutive dimensions.

The X1's compact dimensions don't equate to a cramped rear though. There is significantly more room in the rear than in a five-door 1 Series and perhaps even a 3 Series saloon. Adults of any size and shape will have more than sufficient leg and headroom when seated at the rear of the X1. The standard full length Panorama glass roof with an electrically operated sunshade adds an airy feeling to the cabin.

The trunk has 420 litres of storage space, which can increase to 480 litres with the back seats pulled to the front, and up to 1350 litres of storage space with the seats folded. The boot is not only voluminous but well shaped as well and there's even an under floor compartment with dividers to store smaller items and odds and ends. To further improve flexibility, the rear backrest is adjustable in 11 steps and can be divided in the ratio of 40/20/40.
