BMW IX1 Interior

Being a small to medium-sized SUV, you’d expect the X1-based iX1 to be fairly tight interior-space wise, but actually, with a transverse-engine and front-wheel drive architecture basis, it is surprisingly spacious.

Entry and egress is easy due to large doors, the seat cushions are set quite highly, while deep windows and a low dashboard cowl contribute to a light and airy feel.

The rear seat is as spacious as the front seat area, with room to stretch if required.

BMW IX1 Boot Space

Due to a 40/20/40-split backrest arrangement, the iX1’s cargo capacity increases from 490 litres to 1495 litres. All figures are VDA-rated.

That’s actually slightly down on the regular X1 models, which offers 540-1527L, due to the space demanded by a rear-axle-mounted electric motor and battery pack beneath the rear seats.

Note, too, that there’s no spare tyre, with just a tyre repair kit.

BMW IX1 Seats

The BMW iX1 is a five-seater small-to-medium-sized SUV.

Based on the third-generation X1, the U11-series iX1 is the full battery electric version, with two front bucket seats offering electric adjustment for rake as well as reach.

The seats themselves are classed as ‘sports seats’, meaning they have extra bolstering, presumably to brace their occupants from G-forces when the vehicle is cornering hard.

The rear seats are well-shaped as well, and offer a 40/20/40-split folding backrest arrangement to greatly increase luggage capacity into the cabin, as well as a reclining mechanism. The centre portion drops to double up as a ski-port and contains a pair of cupholders.

However, due to the battery being placed beneath the cushion, the iX1 is not available with the slide function that is optional on the internal combustion engine-powered versions.
