The X1 has always been known for its larger than average cargo size. The 2020 version boast a total of 27 cubic feet in the rear storage section which is larger than it’s main competitors in this class. You can get a whopping 59 cubic feet of cargo space by folding down the rear seats. While it is the smallest version in it’s lineup, don’t think of this as a standard compact crossover.
The X1 does a great job of mixing power and sportiness with fuel efficiency. While it sports 228 horsepower it still gets up to 24 mpg city and 33 highway. This puts it in a sweet spot of enough power to tow 3700 pounds while still being economical enough to handle a decent amount of commuting.
The X1 conveniently comes in two main configurations depending on your driving needs. The xDrive28i comes with all-wheel drive which will help out driving in snow or wet weather. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere like Southern California you can opt for the sDrive28i. With this version you will only get front wheel drive but with the bonus of slightly better gas mileage.
