Fixing What Isn’t Broken in the X1

The second generation of BMW’s small crossover burst onto the scene for the 2016 model year, immediately earning accolades from critics and buyers alike. Indeed, the 2019 X1 tops our luxury subcompact SUV rankings

BMW has been consistently selling about 30,000 X1s each year, but increased competition from newcomers such as the Cadillac XT4, Volvo XC40, and its own X2 has impacted sales this year. Through the first five months of 2019, BMW has seen X1 sales drop more than 38% behind last year’s pace. Needless to say, the refreshed 2020 X1 couldn’t be coming at a better time for the company, arriving in dealerships by the end of the calendar year. 

Not a whole lot under its skin has changed, but the 2020 X1 has been treated to redesigned front and rear fascias, updated wheels, and new colors. BMW says revised gearing in its transmission will improve the shifting performance of what is already one of the sportiest crossovers on the market.
