BMW X1 Performance Rating

2022 X1 Performance

Subcompact SUVs in the premium range are expected to offer sedan-like performance figures, and vehicles such as the X1 and Audi Q3 offer precisely that, thanks to strong turbocharged engines that provide lots of low-end torque. The BMW X1 is available with a single engine and transmission. What you get under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivering 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels, or all fours, via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Performance from this unit is plentiful, especially for a car of this size, and most will find ample power on request. The BMW X1 will manage a 0 to 60 time of 6.6 seconds in FWD configuration, dropping to 6.3 seconds for the AWD car, making it one of the faster cars in its class. Top speed is limited to 130 mph. The X1 has a towing capacity of 3,700 lbs.

Engine and Transmission

The 2022 BMW X1 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels, or all four wheels, via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to a broad torque curve starting low in the rev range, the engine in the X1 feels very usable, especially around town where you barely have to wait for the turbo to wake up before you feel a surge of power. The same can be said for highway driving: the X1 is a confident cruiser and overtakes with glee. The engine and transmission combination is a great one; the eight-speed automatic shifts with crisp precision, and is surprisingly intuitive for an automatic box. In AWD guise, the X1 can send 100 percent of its power to the rear wheels for brief periods of time when traction in the front is lacking. With strong performance and smooth transmission, the X1 offers one of the best driving experiences in its class.

2022 X1 Gas Mileage

The 2022 X1 is available in either FWD or AWD configurations, which will affect the amount of fuel consumed on average. With only around 3,500 pounds to lug about in FWD guise and a small-capacity turbocharged motor in play, the X1 is a surprisingly economical thing, especially when you consider its impressive performance. The EPA rates that the 2022 BMW X1 will manage best gas mileage figures of 24/33/27 mpg on the city/highway/combined cycles. Going for the AWD model will see those numbers drop to 23/31/26 mpg. With a fuel tank capacity of 16.1 gallons, the X1 will manage a maximum range of between 418 and 434 miles, depending on drivetrain selected.
