Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Bolt EUV will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X1.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X1, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

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). The BMW X1 is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Bolt EUV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the BMW X1 and the Chevrolet Bolt EUV have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much wider than the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X1, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

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

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little more horsepower than the Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Chevrolet Bolt EUV. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the BMW X1 as you will in the Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

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