After 6 years of activity and good commercial success, the BMW X1 E84 is replaced by the F48 in 2015. The design remains similar but rejuvenated compared to that of the previous model. The result is an SUV of average size (4.43 x 1.81 meters) and a fairly light mass that rotates in almost all configurations around 1400 kilos. The X1, therefore, goes to immerse itself in its own segment, because it remains different from its German counterparts such as the Mercedes GLA and Audi Q3 in size and functionality. This model is in fact rougher, less urban but more suitable for off-roading. As an opponent of the other Germans just mentioned, perhaps it would be more correct to call the BMW X2 into the game as an alternative. The range of engines available is very rich, and in the 2019 restyling version there is no shortage of hybrid engines. Too bad though that the base engine only offers 116 horsepower. The interiors have an excellent quality of workmanship, and there is a right mix of digital and analog controls. In general, the changes brought about by the 2019 facelift are quite marginal.
