Drive Smarter, Not Harder: Enjoy The 2023 BMW X1’s Best Features

The X1 is at the more affordable end of BMW’s extensive lineup, but it still channels the German automaker’s reputation for aggressive-looking exteriors, agile handling, and high-tech interior equipment. The 2023 BMW X1 is undoubtedly one of the best compact luxury crossovers you can lease in a city like New York, and here’s why.


BMW’s smallest SUV is all-new for 2023. It gets a suite of upgrades, including a bolder dual-kidney grille that translates to a more muscular appearance compared to its predecessor. Its wheelbase is slightly larger than before, which means improved interior space for passengers and cargo.

Engine and Transmission

BMW continues to offer a single powertrain for its smallest SUV. The all-new 2023 XI is motivated by a more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that churns out 241 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque against the previous generation’s 228 hp and 258 lb-ft. A new, smooth seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is responsible for gear shifts, and it pairs with all-wheel drive. As expected, the X1 is fun to drive and delivers a well-mannered ride with improved handling and stability. According to BMW, the new engine propels the mini Bimmer from zero to 60mph in 6.2 seconds.

Fuel Economy

EPA ratings suggest that the 2023 BMW X1 is more fuel-efficient than its predecessor. It is rated 25 mpg in the city, 34 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined.


Inside, the 2023 X1 receives a complete makeover to align with its sporty exterior styling. The new X1 is slightly longer than its predecessor, meaning improved legroom and cargo space. All X1 models get a modern, floating center console and a digitized dashboard with high-definition displays running BMW’s latest iDrive 8 infotainment software. Faux leather seats, power tailgate, and ambient lighting are some of the crossover’s standard features. Still, shoppers looking for the BMW luxury experience can opt for optional heated seats, a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, wireless charging, a Harman/Kardon audio system, a 360-degree surround view camera, etc.

Safety and Driver Assistance

The newly redesigned X1 offers some of BMW’s most advanced safety and driver assistance features, though a few of them are not standard. Highlights of the all-new X1 include;

  • Frontal collision warning with city collision mitigation
  • Automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Evasion Aid
  • Lane-departure warning and blind-spot monitoring
  • Front and rear parking assist
  • Adaptive cruise control with a lane-centering feature
  • Parking assistant and backup assistant
  • Surround view camera, etc.

The X1 is a great choice for shoppers looking for a high-tech luxury compact SUV with plush interior materials. If you are one of such shoppers, VIP Auto Lease is the dealer to give you the industry’s lowest prices and an incomparable lease experience.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
