The 2018 BMW X1 is a small SUV that packs a mean punch, and it is available at our Pfaff BMW dealership in Mississauga. With the growing popularity of smaller, parking lot-friendly sport-utility vehicles, traditional vehicles such as sedans and wagons are being left in the dust. And SUVs such as the 2018 BMW X1 show why. Its small small size is perfect for urban driving, while its low load floor and large cargo volume are perfect for hauling duty. In this article by Pfaff BMW, we will talk about the all-new 2018 BMW X1, and why you should consider it if you are looking for a small SUV. Read on for more information.


Power delivery is smooth and refined during routine driving, and there’s good punch under hard acceleration, too. The eight-speed automatic shifts quickly and helps the X1 accelerate to 60 kmh in a class-leading 6.5 seconds.  The X1’s all-wheel-drive system, rather than being a detriment, makes it feel more agile around corners. There’s more grip than we expected from the all-season tires. If you’re looking to suddenly overtake a car, there’s no delay between pressing the accelerator and starting the pass. In all other scenarios, for a compact luxury SUV, the X1 is as easy to drive as it gets.


The interior cargo area and ease of cabin access set the X1 apart from the pack. A smart use of under-floor compartments maximizes storage in the back, while the size of the door openings and seat placement make it easy to move in and out of the cabin. A highly adjustable driver seat and steering column will suit a wide range of driving positions. The central display screen is well-positioned, and all climate and entertainment system controls are laid out clearly and logical to operate. The X1 may offer the easiest entry of any vehicle in its class. Its combination of low door sills, taller seat bottom and mild side bolsters work together to simplify the process. Small doors help in parking spots but are somewhat heavy for their size.


Navigation is available with the Premium Tier equipment group. The iDrive infotainment system is straightforward to operate. Apple CarPlay, wireless charging and built-in Wi-Fi capability are all worthwhile options to get. The Steptronic transmissions set standards in comfort, dynamics and efficiency. They are a key constituent of the BMW EfficientDynamics measures. The especially fine spacing of the gears permits optimum power build-up at all speeds. This reduces fuel consumption substantially while, at the same time, providing you with even more sportiness and dynamics.


The X1 sports the highest cargo capacity and lowest liftover height in its class. The cargo volume advantage is mainly due to the large underfloor storage where a spare tire might be otherwise. The 40/20/40-split second row folds flat.
