  • Bmw x1's interior is nicely appointed with mostly premium materials.But poke around and you'll find evidence of cost cutting.The glovebox door is as flimsy as a plastic lunchbox, And the bin hidden under the front seat, While useful, Feels as if bmw bought it in bulk from a dollar-store fire sale.The cockpit has a driver-focused layout, Reinforcing the x1's sporty personality.
