  • My wife is now officially a "car girl" - 2016 BMW X1
    By -

    I've always been a fan of BMW's, but this is the first one I've actually owned. My wife and I test drove this and the X3 and quickly realized the fresh look of the new X1 and increased sized put in on par with the X3 from a space perspective. I'm 6'4" 235lbs and can fit comfortably in any of the seats even with the front seat in the rearmost position. It's been comfortable on several interstate trips and we love the zippy handling and performance around town. We have also been impressed with the fuel mileage considering the sportiness this car offers. Before we bought the BMW, I was the "car guy" in the family and my wife didn't really get too excited talking about cars. Now that she's has her BMW she says she's never buying anything else and is very particular about keeping it clean inside and out while making sure she can find that perfect parking spot. She's officially a "car girl" now! :-)

  • Nice car, but dealership service dept is worthless - 2016 BMW X1
    By -

    I purchased my X1 off the showroom floor and when leaving found a ding on the dash and a light was missing in the door. The dealer wrote a "We Owe" to fix the problem. Trying to get BMW to do anything is like pulling teeth. 2 months later ding is still there and no light. Their response is, it's coming from Germany and we have to get approval. Just make sure your X1 is in perfect condition when you leave, because it will never get fixed. Sad to say this will be my last BMW because of the service I've received.

  • Xceptional! - 2016 BMW X1
    By -

    3500 miles in and 5 stars in all aspects. Based on my experience, it lives up to BMW's billing...best in class performance, fuel economy and cargo. I evaluated other comparable models (Lexus NX, Acura RDX, Mercedes GLA, and Audi Q3) and chose the BMW X1. Car and Driver rating 4.5 out of 5. It's roomier on the inside than it appears from the outside. For both rows of seats, it actually has more head and leg room than the current BMW X3. I highly recommend the optional sliding 2nd row seat to gain flexibility for passengers versus cargo. Well-engineered and easy to use information technology (iDrive, bluetooth, Navigation, etc.). I didn't spec the safety technologies, so I can't comment on them. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed!

  • The worst seats imaginable - 2016 BMW X1
    By -

    The good: it's faster than other similarly sized small suv's and has good bmw looks The bad: these are the worst seats. my test drive seemed ok but once you sit in them for a while you know. it's like sitting on a flat park bench. sport seats are only available in the m package, which dealers here don't order

  • Great mult-purpose vehicle - 2016 BMW X1
    By -

    I looked at the Mercedes GLA, Audi Q3, and BMW X1. The 2016 BMX X1 was by far the best. A very practical vehicle, with excellent cargo and passenger room for a compact SUV. Excellent performance and gas mileage from the 4 cyl turbo engine. BMW handling and overall driving experience is an added bonus. I have owned two BMW 3 series sedans. The handling is not as good a these, but the handling is better than any other compact SUV I have driven. The most value for the money compared to other luxury compact SUVs.
