Love this car

This car has everything. It handles terrific in the snow. The red stitching on the black interior is really sharp. Can't wait to have a warm day to open the roof. The back-up camera was a plus.


Nice Car

I have read many reviews on this car, some heavily tech oriented. I am a basic car lover/driver. Ilike the car, I like the options and I like how it drives. Am happy I bought it.


Great sporty SUV

Met my needs and very comfortable ride with a lot of features. Sporty and luxurious at the same time.


Should have bought one sooner

I commute about 2-3 hours round trip daily and before my 2014 X1 sdrive28i, I drove a 5 cylinder 2012 VW Passat. I love the cockpit, and for a guy my size - 6', 245lbs, I fit very comfortably. Love the acceleration and fuel effeciency. I got a great deal and it came with the ultimate package, very necessary if you can get it, and the trunk space is large enough to hold 2 sets of golf clubs without having to fold the seats down. Shorter people wouldn't have any trouble sitting in the back seat, though it is somewhat tight for someone near my size. Eco Pro mode is a lifesaver, and the navigation should be mandatory. Having the up to the minute traffic updates has saved me time with my nav settings to fastest route, I've shaved a lot of time off my daily drive with traffic. The ground clearance is great too, as no tall person likes to peel themselves out of a low sitting car. It looks little on the outside, but feels much bigger on the inside. Definitely a car for those who like to drive.


Love it

Meets all expectations, love the ride, very spacious front and back, has a big trunk, Runs smoothly, great sound


Awesome Car

It is a small SUV that behaves like a Sports car. I love it! I have own this car since it was 6 months old, and it has never had any issues. The car handles like a sports car, yet it gives the convenience of a larger size.


If you need performance & more space than a sedan

I'm on my BMW because I needed more space then what was available in a regular sedan. I had a Kia Optima prior and loved all of the features it came with but hated losing the performance that I had in previous luxury vehicles. After doing research I narrowed it down to an Audi Q2 or a BMW X1. The Audi was missing a few features that came standard on the Beamer and had an anemic engine for the price tag. Not a race car with the 2.0 T T should be fine for most


Good Car

Really Valuable car. i test drove that and really felt a valuable choice. Reliable and good for long running


Loving my car

This car is reliable, comfortable and fits everything I need. It does well on gas and has nice pick up. The speakers sound amazing and I love the sun roof. The fact that the car has an eco boost option is eco friendly and helps my pockets.


A sporty fun SUV after driving a staid sedan!

Love my certified pre-owned X1!! I traded to this from a series 5 sedan because of difficulties getting out of the car due to arthritic knees. The X1 sits higher, and getting out is now very easy. The turbo engine gives me the confidence to get onto the freeway easily. It took some getting used to the engine resting at a complete stop like in hybrid cars, but it starts up immediately when I release the brake. The gearshift was also new to me--press the button on the left side with the thumb, then push away from me to go to R, and pull toward me to go to D. But It was a minor adjustment, and the tradeoff is getting to drive an excellent machine that now even feels like a sporty "teenaged" fun car instead of a staid sedan.
