The BMW X2

If you’re looking for a larger SUV that gets great gas mileage in the city, the BMW X2 is another option. The new X2 offers an all-wheel-drive version and a front-wheel-drive version. The inline four-cylinder, 2.0-litre twin-power turbocharged engine gives plenty of power for driving in the city with 228 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft of torque. 

The BMW i3

The BMW i3 is a small car with a fully electric powertrain. The electric powertrain requires a lot fewer mechanical components, so BMW is able to make the car smaller than similar gas-powered vehicles, making it great for parking in tight parking spots in the city. The standard backup camera helps you squeeze into parallel parking spots on the street. The i3 engine gives the subcompact car 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft of torque, which is plenty of power for driving in the city. Plus, you save a lot of money on gas, so you have more money to enjoy city living.

The BMW i8 

If you want a sporty BMW for driving in the city, the i8 is a sleek all-electric sports car. You’ll turn heads everywhere you go in the beautiful i8. The framework of the i8 and the i3 is built using lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) found in performance race car parts. Using CFRP, the automaker is able to reduce the weight of the car, so you can really feel the power from the engine. The i8 comes in two styles: the BMW i8 Coupe and the BMW i8 Roadster. Both are sporty and command attention.

The BMW X1

The BMW X1 has a very affordable price for how packed full of features it is. The X1 also has an impressive fuel economy in the city and on the highway. The 2018 X1 only comes in one trim level, the xDrive28i. Even with the BMW X1’s small four-cylinder engine, driving the X1 is exhilarating due to expert tuning and the standard Tiptronic eight-speed transmission. The X1 comes with great safety features to keep you safe, too.
