2018 X1 Interior Appointments
The 2018 X1 comes upholstered in attractive standard SensaTec leatherette, an easy-to-clean synthetic leather, in your choice of black or oyster colors. Upgrade to the Convenience Tier and you can experience the luxury of Dakota leather seats in those same colors, or a rich shade of mocha that adds refinement to the cabin.
Leather seats come perforated to allow breathability, so you won’t get too hot when those blistering New Jersey summers roll around. The standard leather-wrapped sport steering wheel is yet another welcome touch, complementing the soft-touch dashboard well.
You’ll also find wood accents across the dash and door panels-just one more sign of the X1’s commitment to carefully crafted elegance and sophistication.
Interior Specs & Dimensions
The BMW X1 interior is extra accommodating to taller passengers due to its tall roof. Headroom measures 41.9 inches in the front and a generous 39.4 inches in the rear, ensuring that riders of all shapes and sizes can keep good posture and avoid neck fatigue on longer rides.
In the cargo hold of this 2-row subcompact crossover, you’ll find plenty of storage space with 27.1 cubic feet behind the second-row seats. Fold down the 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, and you’ll access up to 57.8 cubic feet, perfect for storing all your outdoor adventure gear and even some small furniture items.
A large underfloor storage area gives you even more space to store your things out of sight, as do all the small storage cubbies throughout the cabin. The X1 is truly equipped to let you bring more along for the ride.
Advanced Technology Features
In the cabin of the 2018 X1, you’ll find all kinds of advanced technology to enhance your daily drive around Atlantic City, Egg Harbor, or Vineland. It all starts with the BMW iDrive 6.0 infotainment system, offering a 6.5-inch (non-touch) display screen, controlled with an intuitive knob between the front seats.
That knob’s placement makes it easy for driver and front passenger alike to use a wide range of available features, including Apple CarPlay™ to easily access your smartphone’s apps while driving, plus Navigation to offer you voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions to your destination.
You’ll also appreciate some extra conveniences included in the available Convenience Tier, like the auto-dimming rearview and driver exterior mirrors. Need to see what’s going on behind you or to your side? No longer will you worry about being blinded by the sunlight or a pair of strong headlamps!
