If you are leaning towards a smaller ‘cross-over’ type of SUV, search no further than a BMW X1 Lease. There’s certainly a premium feel about the interior cabin & despite the compact proportions ample leg room for most shapes & sizes of rear passenger, thanks to an adjustable back-seat configuration. Interestingly, latest generation X1 has the highest ride height to date, very handy for seeing over taller walls or leggy hedgerows & loading the decent sized boot is easier than ever before. Drivers who don’t need a 4x4 drivetrain could consider their X1 Lease with rear-wheel, sDrive. Opting for sDrive comes with added benefits of improved efficiency, mostly thanks to one of BMW’s Eco-Pro fuel saving settings & a sportier, road biased driving experience.
Leasing a BMW X1 in xLine specification is certainly a popular choice for Business Users due to a cool design of alloy wheel & leather upholstery fitted as standard, plus the very latest LED lights are guaranteed to impress. When it comes to private customers, if flamboyant exterior design is high on a list of priorities then go for M Sport specification with an optional 19” wheel upgrade, this completes the ‘full-on’ look. So, if you’ve made up your mind & don’t want the hassle of selling your car at the end of the contract a BMW X1 Lease could be a great solution.

The BMW X1 is a diesel only vehicle, having said that, you do get a selection of four different diesel engines to choose from. Whilst the entry level option is certainly okay, it is perhaps the engine types in the middle of the range that most buyers are likely to opt for. They give you everything you need in terms of power and flexibility. However, if you are in the market for a 4x4 with a little bit extra in the speed department, then it might be worth your while looking at the top of the range model, which certainly has bags of pace. If you take the car as standard, you will have a manual transmission system. If you want an automatic, then there is one available if you request it as an extra.
In terms of the suspension, it's difficult to praise the X1 too highly because the weight of it just doesn't feel right and this really doesn't inspire confidence, especially with your foot firmly down on the motorway. To its credit though, the car is relatively stable and refined when it needs to handle corners but when the ride is a bit unsettled as well, there aren't too many positives to list here. If you are considering opting for the M Sport version, the ride is even firmer with the only consolation being that you won't pay extra for the standard set up.
It's not all doom and gloom for the X1 because it does a sterling job when it comes to keeping noises from the road and from the suspension outside of the cabin. There is some wind noise at particularly high speeds but never enough to destroy the calm that has been created by its qualities in other areas. This car is at its best when cruising, the engine being quiet and smooth. When working the revs hard it's not quite as smooth but certainly nothing to worry about.
If we were buying, we would likely just opt for the basic trim package. As basic as trim packages go, this is certainly one of the more generous ones with rear parking sensors, electric windows, Bluetooth, dual zone climate control as well as both aux-in and USB sockets. There are sport trim packages available for those who favour something with a more athletic edge and another trim that makes the appearance of the car a little more robust.
