The 2018 BMW X1 Sets the Bar for Luxury Small Crossovers


There’s a trend going on in the U.S. automotive market right now that you may be hearing a lot about. It’s something that started a few years back. 

Simply put, U.S. drivers are favoring crossovers and SUVs for their beneficial balance between utility and efficiency. With more space than a sedan and more miles to the gallon than a truck, drivers are finding that they can have their cake and eat it too. When looking at a trend like this, it’s always interesting to ask the question of “Where did it start?” In their review of the 2018 BMW X1, U.S. News & World Report has an answer: “The BMW X1 was the original luxury small crossover, and its 2018 incarnation is still one of the best.”

While functionality and performance may steal the headlines when it comes to crossovers and SUVs, safety is often another attribute for which they rank highly, and the 2018 BMW X1 is no exception. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) certainly thinks so, naming it a Top Safety Pick. 

Standard front and side airbags provide peace of mind, while a newly standard backup camera helps you keep a careful eye on what’s behind you. For added assistance on the open road, you can opt for the available Driver Assistance Package. A comprehensive system of cameras and radars provides pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, and automated emergency braking.
