2024 BMW X1 vs 2024 BMW X3

Serving Milwaukee, WI

If you are in the market for a compact luxury crossover engineered to impress you over the miles, both the BMW X1 and the BMW X3 are worthy contenders. The 2024 BMW X1 stands out as the brand’s most affordable and smallest crossover SUV, and this subcompact model leaves nothing for drivers to want for. The X3 is a slightly larger, compact crossover that delivers the functionality, comfort, and luxury you want. At BMW of Milwaukee North, our sales reps are passionate about helping each customer make their purchase with confidence, and we are ready to help you uncover the exciting differences between the X1 and the X3.


The 2024 BMW X1 is offered with two powertrains. The xDrive28i version comes with a 241-horsepower, four-cylinder, turbo 2.0-liter engine. The M35i xDrive features a sport-tuned version of that engine that produces 312 horsepower. All X1 trims have all-wheel drive, a dual-clutch, and an auto seven-speed transmission. The 2024 BMW X3 has three available trims. The sDrive30i and the xDrive30i have a 248-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo, four-cylinder engine. The M40i has a 382-horsepower, mild-hybrid V6, 3.0-liter engine. Both systems come with an eight-speed auto transmission. The entry-level trim has rear-wheel drive, while the other trims have standard all-wheel drive.


The smaller BMW X1 is distinguished by its upright, arched roofline and a short, subtly defined hood. The sides show off modestly accented fenders and a deep, angled accent on the door panels. At the front, the X1 is styled with a short, kidney-like grille, a tall bumper, and bold, L-shaped air vents. The headlights add a standout touch with bent LED bars as accents. The 2024 X3 is slightly longer, with an upper-definition line running over the door panels. The front end boasts a larger chrome grille and a smaller bumper. The headlights have C-shaped LED ribbons, and the air intakes are more pronounced.


You can use numerous pampering features in the 2024 X1 and the 2024 X3. Shared features include remote engine start, sport seats, heated front seats, driving assistance, a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, a premium Harman Kardon sound system, a wireless charging station, customizable ambient lights, forward collision sensing with mitigation, a 10.7-inch touch display screen, wireless connections for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a panoramic sunroof, a navigation system with augmented reality and others.
