As Car and Driver compiled their list of the best of the best for the highly competitive 2018 model year, one Bavarian machine made rank without hesitation. The 2018 BMW X1—available at BMW of West Houston along the Katy Freeway—joined the register of 10 Best Trucks and SUVs as the Best Subcompact Luxury SUV.

The X1 Delivers a Lot in a Subcompact Stance

The 2018 BMW X1 has been recognized by Car and Driver for its clever utility and performance. Both front and rear head- and legroom are ample, with front head space reaching 41.9 inches. Window visibility is pristine thanks to a solidly upright posture. Meanwhile, the 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats enhance cargo space to 58.7 cubic feet when folded down (making enough room for more carry-on suitcases than the rival Audi Q5 can withhold).

The X1 is fun to drive, too, with a TwinPower Turbo engine, an acceleration rate of just 6.6 seconds, Driving Dynamics Control and more. You can feel the energy of this BMW model for yourself at BMW of West Houston, where we maintain a diverse array of new vehicles, all for our customers to relish in.
