2016 BMW X1 vs. 2017 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Traverse, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X1 and the Chevrolet Traverse.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the Chevrolet Traverse, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X1 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Traverse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW X1 is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Traverse.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X1 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Traverse.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Traverse, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X1 seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Chevrolet Traverse.
