2019 X1 Performance Specs

The 2019 BMW X1 delivers a great all-around performance, as it provides:

  • A spirited engine
  • Strong brakes
  • Poised handling

It comes with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that delivers 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque—for plenty of passing power on the road. The engine is also mated to an 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission that shifts with smooth precision to get you to your desired speed seamlessly.

Cargo Room in the X1In addition, the X1 is available with xDrive, which is the intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) system from BMW. This system can detect and anticipate slip, and redistribute power to the wheel with the most possible traction. The result is optimum grip on slick surfaces, for your peace of mind.

Passenger & Cargo Room in the X1

Not only does the BMW X1 offer an impressive performance, but its interior is also quite noteworthy.

That’s because it has lots of room for five people, as shown through the following interior dimensions:

First Row

Second Row


41.9 inches

39.4 inches


40.4 inches

37 inches

Shoulder Room

55.6 inches

55.2 inches

You can also take advantage of the expansive amount of cargo room that’s in the X1. Behind the back row, you get 27.1 cubic feet of space. There are 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats that let you fit larger items while still leaving room for a backseat passenger or two.

If no one’s sitting in the back, you can fold the entire back row down flat to maximize cargo room at 58.7 cubic feet. Between the massive cargo area and the standard power liftgate, fitting all your essential items into the X1 is a breeze.
