2016 BMW X1 xDrive25i Review : Coffs Harbour to Sydney Road Trip

The fresh-faced, second-generation BMW X1 was recently launched in Australia and though the launch event near Coffs Harbour included a drive loop of around 400km through the surrounding countryside, it just wasn't enough. This all-new baby BMW needed an even bigger dose of fresh air. The solution? A road trip to Sydney, including a few choice detours to hunt for fresh local produce along the way...

2016 BMW X1 : A discussion with Sydney-born designer Calvin Luk

Bigger and bolder than before, the second-generation BMW X1 has been launched in Australia on the beautiful Coffs Coast.

2016 BMW X1 Review

My, X1, you’ve changed. But instead of transforming from bland to bold, like some makeover reality television contestant, the 2016 BMW X1 has gone the opposite way. You used to sit on flamboyant small-SUV fringes, now you’re thoroughly middle of the road...

Subaru Forester v BMW X1 Comparison

Read the full review here. Bringing the 2016 Subaru Forester XT Premium and 2016 BMW X1 sDrive 20i together for a head-to-head gunfight isn’t quite as left field as it might seem. Pricing is close – only $3610 between the starting prices – and both are positioned as affordable family SUVs at the smaller end of the scale.

2016 BMW X1 xDrive 20d Review

Read the article here. This is the all-new 2016 BMW X1, the latest contender in the small but premium SUV segment. It’s got a new look, new interior, new engine, and like the 2-Seriest Active Tourer is based on a front-wheel-drive platform. The old X1 was a real success for BMW – they made over 700,000 of the things. So this new car has big shoes to fill...

Sapphire Beach to Sydney Road Trip in the 2016 BMW X1

The fresh-faced, second generation BMW X1 has recently been launched in Australia.

BMW X1 long-wheelbase variant revealed for China

BMW has unveiled a stretched version of its X1 SUV at this week's Beijing motor show - but apart from the longer rear door and surrounds, you'd be hard pressed to spot the difference. Developed specifically for China, the long wheelbase X1 (badged X1 Li), will be built at a joint-venture factory Tiexi plant in Shenyang by BMW’s Chinese partner, Brilliance...

2014 BMW X1 sDrive 20i Sportline Review

Overall, the X1 is a comfortable ride - it features great handling and performance, however it lacks interior detail. Additionally, the standard seats, along with the general driver positioning, can err on the uncomfortable over long trips. One of my biggest gripes with this car is the interior...

The first thing i noticed upon delivery is the seemingly flat black sapphire paint. The nice M Sport alloy wheels made up for it though.. Staring at it on the front, it looks awkward and smallish -- my previous E90 sedan looks better. The rear end appears uniquely BMW. Upon entry, the seating is quite low, not like an SUV, but that's what i like...
