The new BMW X1 is a crossover vehicle that is best described as an all-wheel-drive hatchback on steroids. This beast has a much bigger body and significantly more efficient engine than its predecessor. The main change with this vehicle is the introduction of front wheel drive.
Some people might understandably be a bit averse to the idea of a front-wheel drive BMW so for those people, the entry-level petrol engine is also available with xDrive all-wheel drive. This setup makes the car just marginally slower.
BMW was the first premium automaker to introduce beefed up all-wheel-drive hatchbacks to the general driving public, who lapped it up with glee. Now the new BMW X1 continues to underscore BMW's dominance in this market segment.
