Xdrive 35i is a BEAST

So we had the large-engine Xdrive35i - holy cow, what a fun car to drive. When you start it up you can tell you are in for a ride. The exhaust opens up for the initial rev of the engine and it is impressive. The car is super small/light and overpowered. Much different to drive than the 4cly model (which is also quick, but not like this). We sold it because we added a family member and it was just too small. It is good for families with 1-3, no more. Great car - would have loved to have held onto it - but we had to trade it in. Super fun to drive, but very hard to drive slow on the freeway.


Reliable and value for the money car

It is good looking and has excellent performance. It is value for budgeted money and comfortable for family commute. Recommend to have a car like this.


Beautiful and powerful

The car is both eco friendly and powerful. Good gas mileage, can go in and out of eco mode so you can choose to conserve gas or accelerate as needed if on the parkway! Great design, with awesome tech specs available. Very happy with this purchase!


Best handling and pure driving fun

This is the best handling SAV I've driven ever. The handling and smoothness is precise. With the M package front grill and wheel rim, it truly stands out and catch your eyes. It's the ultimate driving Machine.


Excellent drive

Strong performance from its turbocharged engine One of the best-handling compact luxury crossovers you're going to find More rear passenger and cargo room than most other competitors High-level interior fit, finish and materials


Awesome SUV with true BMW Class

Have had a 2014 BMW X1 for a year now and absolutely love it. It drives perfectly and I've had no trouble at all. With 38.5K miles, maintenance has been minimal with no issues at all. Highly recommended.


Reliable car and great handling of road curves.

Plenty of room in this SUV and with the back seat down, ample amount of room to transport items, even a bike. Great fuel consumption both in town and highway.


Stylish Mom car

I love this car! Its super stylish, very sporty and has room for the kiddos depending on how many and how old they are. I get compliments all the time. I love that it gets up from 0-60 in like 2 seconds and has a eco feature that helps save on gas. Only cons.... The back seat space is a little limited and I hate that it has bluetooth for the phone but not music and that it burns gas like no other if you're not on the highway but those are my only complaints.


BMW performance at an affordable price

Smooooth! Love hitting the expressway! The ride is smooth and nice acceleration wherever you are at in your drive, 0mph, 25mph or 60mph. Comfortable wrap seating with everything at your fingertips and plenty of room for 5 and cargo.


Excellent acceleration!

The gas pedal is fun! The BMW X1 accelerates very well. The auto off function is great just takes time . And the interior looks very classy.
