Much Better Than Expected

I originally bought this car for my wife but it's a much better car than expected - so I kept it. Great power in Sport mode, comfortable, great all around visibility and decent gas mileage.

Lover My Beemer

I love my X1 it is my dream car. I feel safe in it and find it to be very reliable! I owned a 2001 BMW 325ci convertible before buying my new one. I loved that car too. Always reliable for me and fun to drive. I do not regret buying my new one at all because I know I will always get wonderful , reliable service at the BMW dealership here in SF.

Most comfortable car I've owned.

First the new BMW X1 looks fresh with the new design. This car feels like a sedan however it got off-road potential with X-Drive system which makes this car very reliable on the road. In this vehicle you have a new 2.8 engine, which runs without any problems. This car got a full technology renovation, now there is a better navigation,sound system (harman kardon), in some of the packages you can get lane assistance and other helpful things. In the new updated version of X1 the materials of the car got much better (less annoying plastic). Overall i like this car more than BMW X3 because of its proportions and new look and the way it feels on the road.

I love it

Excellent performance, quality, and value. I really couldn't imagine how fun this would be to drive. It's beautiful lines and stance are accentuated by the M package. The transmission can be a bit odd at low speeds, but I'm still getting a feel for the throttle.

Practical yet fun to drive.

This is the perfect car for anyone needing a little extra cargo space but also a sporty feel. The 8 speed automatic is perfectly matched to the engine and seems to multiply its power just when needed.

My first BMW

I test drove or researched just about every 4 cylinder crossover on the market over a 2 month period and the BMW won me over. The price for the performance was undeniably the best. Many of the "non-Luxury" brand vehicle prices were higher than expected and they don't hold their value as well. Coming from a larger luxury crossover, it's taking me a little time adjusting to the compact size of the X1. But the pep and handling of this car is awesome. I purchased 2 weeks ago, so stay tuned.

Nice small compact suv

I have been driving little sports cars for the last 10 years, so at first this car felt too big for me. But after a few weeks I love it.

If I could marry a car...

I LOVE this car. I waited years for BMW to remodel the X1. The size is perfect, the interior is GLAM, the trunk space is unreal. I have 3 tennis rackets, Christmas decorations, and 2 pairs of shoes in my hidden compartment. Did I also mention my dog LOVES this car? Wouldn't change a single thing.

Olivia is my car!

Having this car for a mere 10 days, I am so pleased with my decision! The turning radius is perfect, the keyless entry handy, the extended moon roof will please my granddaughter and friends when they are in the back seat. The heated seats and steering wheel will be heaven n the winter. The backup camera is a first for me and I love it. Living in a city, the self park is fun and simple to use. I'm delighted with my decision!
