TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 BMW X1

2015 BMW X1 Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2016 Fuel economy was a "why to buy" with the original BMW X1. Probably owing to its additional height, in the EPA's tests the new X1 rates one mpg lower on the highway but the same in the city, for a still very competitive 22 city / 32 highway. These are good numbers for a quick all-wheel-drive (AWD) crossover with plenty of room for four people and their stuff. Though smaller and less powerful, the Audi Q3 scores lower, 20/28. The Mini Clubman, with the same engine and transmission but without AWD and with less weight and frontal area to push through the atmosphere scores a little better, 24/34. Within the class only the Mercedes-Benz GLA does better, and then only in city driving (24/32). In my driving the X1's trip computer ususally reported suburban averages around 26 mpg, but as low as 23 in harder driving and as high as 31 when driven in what I call "Prius mode." On a 70-mph highway the trip computer reported a two-way average just over 30. These numbers are a little better than those I observed in the old X1. full 2016 BMW X1 review
