2020 BMW X1 vs 2020 BMW MX1 Comparison in Norwalk, CA

Looking for a car that's comfortable yet easy to park? Compact yet spacious? Versatile yet sporty? Stylish yet practical? All these were once contradictions, but when you choose a BMW Sports Activity Vehicle, you can get all this and more. The BMW X1 and X2 are our smallest SUVs, but they go big on performance, features, safety and value. But with so much in common between both models, what are the differences? Find out below. We'll tell you more about the 2020 BMW X1 Sports Activity Vehicle and the 2020 BMW X2 Sports Activity Coupe.

2020 BMW X1 vs 2020 BMW MX1 Exterior

Similarities: Layout & Design

Both the 2020 BMW X1 and X2 are subcompact crossover SUVs, combining the city-friendly size of a small hatchback with the benefits of a crossover: higher ride height, extra cargo space and available all-wheel drive for all-weather agility. They both provide more than 40" of front seat legroom and about 37" of legroom in the rear seats, making them more comfortable than your average compact car. Unlike many BMW vehicles, which feature standard rear-wheel drive for sporty performance, 2WD versions of the BMW X1 and X2 feature standard front-wheel drive for superior everyday durability. They're both excellent choices if you want a practical everyday commuter car with BMW style, comfort and driving enjoyment.

Differences: Size & Capacity

While passenger comfort is pretty much identical in both vehicles, you'll notice the 2020 BMW X1 has a squared-off shape more typical of an SUV. That gives it a large cargo area with 27.1 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats -- plenty for trips to the mall, the grocery store or that weekend getaway. However, the sleek, sloping roofline of the 2020 BMW X2 lends it a more aerodynamic shape, but at the cost of a little bit of cargo capacity. Yet, with 21.6 cubic feet of cargo space inside, the 2020 BMW X2 still offers far more utility than your average sedan or hatchback.

2020 BMW X1 vs 2020 BMW MX1 Interior

Similarities: Performance & Drive

Under the hood of both cars you'll find a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Pairing powerful performance with impressive efficiency, these engines both deliver 228 standard horsepower and up to 31 highway MPG with all-wheel drive, or even more with front-wheel drive. Sending power to the wheels is an 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission with a manual mode for an engaging, exciting drive. Standard Sport Dynamics Control lets you tune engine response and more for a more engaging drive on twisting mountain roads or a more economical one when navigating busy traffic.

However, there is one key difference: Only the 2020 BMW X2 offers an upgraded powertrain tuned by the M Performance division. The 2020 BMW X2 M35i gets an even more powerful engine with 301 horsepower for serious quickness and passing power!

Similarities: Safety & Driver Assistance

Best of all, both cars come standard with BMW Active Driving Assistant to protect you from the most common dangers on today's hectic roads.
