BMW X1 Performance Specs

BMW X1: Expert Performance

The 2022 BMW X1 offers a 2.0L 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine coupled with the efficient 8-speed STEPTRONIC Automatic transmission. Let’s see what kind of specifications can be expected with this powertrain:



Torque (lb-ft)


Compression Ratio


Drivers have access to over 200 horsepower—that’s some power. This energy is then transferred to the model’s acceleration rate. When tested, this model is able to go from 0 to 60 MPH within 6.6 seconds.

As far as handling all this power, the X1 enlists performance features such as standard Dynamic Stability Control, and Dynamic Traction Control. Both systems help support the model with its 50/50 weight distribution.

That means better overall precision and control on the road. Drivers can take on windy roads or maneuver through traffic with these systems on your side.

BMW X1 Interior

This model can seat up to five people. In terms of seating, no matter where you find yourself in the cabin, you’ll be greeted with at least 37 inches to stretch and shift your legs during those longer commutes.

This model maximizes your passenger space while still acting as a compact. As you can see from its exterior dimensions, this SUV is only 71.7 inches in width. That means its smaller build blends perfectly within narrow city streets or tight parking spots.

Plus, its smaller build even comes in handy for its fuel economy. The light-weight vehicle can produce an EPA-estimated 24 city/33 highway MPG.1

As for comfort, BMW is no stranger to luxury. Here are just some standard comfort features that can be found in your BMW X1 model:

  • Power front seats including driver's seat memory
  • Power tailgate
  • Multi-zone Climate Control including micro-filter and automatic air recirculation
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers with automatic headlight control

Plus, the model hosts entertainment systems that make your trips more enjoyable. For example, the BMW iDrive system features a standard 8.8-inch screen with voice command and standard Apple CarPlay™ compatibility.

BMW X1 Trim Levels

BMW X1 Review: Trim Options

Depending on your personal preference, you’ll need to choose from two trim options: the sDrive28i or the xDrive28i. Though at first glance they seem similar, the sDrive28i comes as a front-wheel drive, compared to the xDrive28i that comes with all-wheel drive.

What makes all-wheel drive so special is its ability to distribute your engine’s power to all four of your wheels. That means taking on rougher terrain like wet, slippery roads, or snow-covered mountains, is all the more easier.

Whichever trim you prefer, you’ll have access to plenty of safety features thanks to the BMW Active Driving Assistant, which comes with both trims. Features include Frontal Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Speed Limit Info.
