2020 BMW X1 Interior

2020 BMW X1 Interior Review


Interior: 8.1

The 2020 BMW X1 has a mostly upscale interior, but some materials are of a lower quality. Seating accommodations are comfortable, and cargo space is excellent for the luxury subcompact SUV class. Infotainment features are user-friendly.

  • "The X1's interior is nicely appointed and crafted from mostly premium materials. Poke around, and you'll find evidence that BMW's accountants repurposed funds from the interior. The glovebox door is as flimsy as a plastic lunchbox, and the bin hidden under the front seat, while useful, feels as if BMW bought it in bulk from a dollar-store fire sale." -- Car and Driver
  • "The rest of the X1 conforms to BMW's usual high standards, with quality materials and excellent ergonomics." -- Autotrader
  • "This baby BMW's dash is sleek and angular. Materials have a premium look and feel, such as the soft-touch dash and wood accents. The standard SensaTec fake-leather seating feels down-market, though." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)


The five-seat BMW X1 comes standard with synthetic leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, and a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel.

The front seats offer good comfort and support, and for most folks, it’s easy to find a good driving position. However, critics wish for more steering wheel adjustments. The rear seat offers sufficient head- and legroom for passengers in the outboard seats, but the rear middle seat is likely too narrow for most adults.

Optional features include genuine leather upholstery, heated front seats, front sport seats, four-way front-seat power lumbar adjustments, a heated steering wheel, a sliding and reclining rear seat, and an M sport steering wheel.

For securing child safety seats, the X1 has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the rear middle seat. The lower anchors are not too deep in the seats, but it's difficult to maneuver your hands around them. The tether anchors are distinct from other hardware and easy to use.

  • "The main gripe is in the second row. While legroom is acceptable, that middle seat is for occasional use only. Drivers who transport multiple rear passengers on a regular basis will probably want to upgrade to at least an X3." -- Autotrader
  • "The seats support you and feel comfortable. I appreciated the adjustable upper bolsters and squeezed them against my kidneys a touch." -- Autoweek
  • "The cockpit has a driver-focused layout, reinforcing the X1's sporty personality. Facing the driver is a businesslike gauge cluster that looks elegant and is readable at a glance. The driving position is great, although the steering-wheel adjustments could use more range of motion in both angle and reach." -- Car and Driver

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 X1 include automatic climate control and an 8.8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, navigation, Bluetooth, a USB port, a seven-speaker stereo, and HD Radio. The iDrive interface is straightforward and easy to use.

Optional features include a panoramic moonroof, proximity keyless entry, interior ambient lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, satellite radio, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound stereo, wireless device charging, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, speed limit recognition, automatic high-beam headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors. Optional active safety features include a head-up display, adaptive headlights, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, and automatic park assist.

  • "The company's iDrive infotainment system has also evolved to a point where it's one of the most user-friendly setups out there." -- Autotrader
  • "The X1's standard infotainment system is intuitive enough, and it's easy to operate while on the go." -- Car and Driver
  • "iDrive is relatively intuitive, controlled either though the touchscreen or by a dial on the center console. Navigation … offers crisp graphics and entering a destination with voice control is easy." -- CNET (2019)


The BMW X1 has 27.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seat and 58.7 cubic feet with the second row folded. Those are among the best values in the luxury subcompact SUV class. A power liftgate is standard, and hands-free access is available.

  • "The cargo area is carpeted, chrome-trimmed, and cavernous. We managed to fit seven of our carry-on cases behind the second row and 19 in total with the rear seat folded down." -- Car and Driver
  • "Cargo space is 27.1 cu ft. with the rear seats up, 58.7 cu ft. when they're folded down. That's pretty good for the class. Those rear seats split and fold in 40/20/40 fashion. The front passenger seat also folds down for extra cargo versatility." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "There's great utility in here, too, with 27.1 cubic feet of space behind the second row of seats, or a whopping 58.7 cubic feet with them folded. That's about 10 more cubic feet than what's offered in the Audi, Cadillac and Volvo." -- CNET (2019)
