Which SUV Comes Out on Top?

Both the BMW X1 and the Lexus NX offer technologies to help keep you connected and entertained. The X1, for example, comes standard with the BMW Navigation Business infotainment system, which gives you access to features like Apple CarPlay™.

Navigation Features & Safety Technology

The X1 also comes standard with navigation features like:

  • Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information
  • Stolen Vehicle Recovery
  • BMW ConnectedDrive® Services

With BMW ConnectedDrive® Services, you can remotely lock and unlock your X1, among other features. You can also send directions directly to your SUV from your phone.

The Lexus NX offers some similar features, like Apple CarPlay™ and the Lexus app. One major difference is the iDrive 6 software. It’s only available with the BMW X1. It gives you control of your infotainment setup with a handy iDrive touchpad controller.

Both models also offer advanced safety technologies. They come standard with systems like Frontal Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning. However, only the BMW offers a reversing assistant and parking assistant. The Lexus NX does have available Advanced Park, but it does not have the reversing assistant.

Interior Dimensions

When it comes to interior space, the 2022 BMW X1 and the 2022 Lexus NX deliver. Both SUVs can comfortably seat five riders, giving each person plenty of room to stretch out. So, how much room do each of those riders have?

Passengers & Cargo Room

To see how which model will provide more room to relax, we compared these cabins.

FRONT HEADROOM 1,065 mm (41.9 in.) 973 mm (38.3 in.)
REAR HEADROOM 1,002 mm (39.4 in.) 978 mm (38.5 in.)
REAR SHOULDER ROOM 1,453 mm (57.2 in.) 1,372 mm (54 in.)

As we can see, you and your passengers will have more headroom in both the front and rear rows. This is important and will ensure that everyone can sit comfortably.

You’ll find more cargo room inside the BMW model, too. Utilize the 40/20/40 split-folding seats or fold down the second row completely to open 1,550 litres (54.7 cubic feet) of cargo room.

Compare that to the Lexus model that only has 1,328 litres (46.9 cubic feet) of cargo room when those seats are folded down. It’s clear the X1 offers more space.

Interior Features

In addition to space, you’ll also want an SUV that has your favourite features. Both SUVs offer impressive amenities to get you from Point A to Point B.

In addition, you’ll find room to store belongings with the centre consoles. In the BMW, this console has a switch/sliding control feature and includes wireless charging.

The similarities between the interiors of these SUVs continue into their available features. You can opt for supple leather-trimmed seating and ambient lighting to set the mood. They’re also both available with a Panoramic Moonroof that will let in natural light.
