Impressive Efficiency

The 2015 BMW X1 may be a compact executive crossover, but that name doesn’t mean that it can’t boast impressive fuel economy ratings. Despite it’s larger size, the 2015 X1 does, in fact, achieve an overall exceptional EPA-estimated fuel economy.

The 2015 X1 sDrive28i rear-wheel drive crossover gets an EPA-estimated 23 miles per gallon in the city, and 34 miles per gallon on the highway. Those who are seeking the ultimate off-road capabilities, will be happy to know that their fuel economy will not suffer.

With an estimated 22 miles per gallon in the city, and 32 miles per gallon on the highway, the X1 xDrive28i will still take you further on less gas, than many of its competitors. 

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 falls short when it comes to fuel economy. Achieving 24 miles per gallon in the city, and only 32 on the highway, one of the X1’s toughest competitors doesn’t stack up when it comes to saving money at the pump. 

The 2015 Audi Q5 is another competitor to BMW’s X1 compact crossover, and again, it falls short when it comes to fuel economy. With 26 miles per gallon in the city, and 31 miles per gallon on the highway, the Audi Q5 will have you stopping more to fill up, which means less time enjoying the road.

A final competitor, the noteworthy 2015 Volvo XC60, also falls short in the fuel economy category. While the X1 gets an estimated 34 miles per gallon on the highway, the Volvo XC60 only gets 31 miles per gallon highway.
