The rear seats are not as spacious as other rivals, so you cant put more than two people at the back.  You can find a comfortable driving position. It looks stylish from inside, but the materials quality is not that good. There are some cheap, low grade plastics as well.

The 2020 BMW X1 is a 5-seater car, with eight-way power adjustment seats. They offer sufficient comfort and support, with excellent visibility on offer. Taller passengers can find ample support for longer trips. The interior is a strong combination of visual appeal and functionality, thanks to the quality of materials used.
