Suspension & Comfort
Its been a joy owning the BMW X1, this one is the top of the line variant and I will share my ownership experience. I use this vehicle primarily for long trips, highway runs and out of station journeys where I drive it. I use a secondary car for my city runs.
The vehicle looks handsome, well proportionate, bold, has good road presence Looks sexy and in this sparkling metallic brown color which was new at that time looks quite unique wrt to other bimmers which are mostly in Mediterranean blue or Polar White pearl.
Inside Space and Comfort
Extremely comfortable, hugely spacious, and I mean it you really need to get inside one to see the space. My whole laparoscopic instrument set along with displays fit in with enough boot left. Have done rather long trips as well with loads of luggage. Its very very practical and the primary reason I chose this over a 3 series of BMW and Mercedes C class.
I chose White leather seats with oak wood trim which in my opinion looks best. Would have loved an option of tan though which isn't there.
The seats are supremely comfortable which makes you very comfortable for long long drives. Both for the driver and passenger. The AC works outstanding good the huge panoramic sunroof adds to the airiness of the already spacious car and that too in white interiors. Huge boot space and sufficient legroom.
Engine and Performance
I drive this myself. And I love it. Its fast, agile and picks up speed really quick. Reaches 120 in no time and you can maintain speeds of 140 and above all day if roads allow without breaking a sweat and the cabin stays extremely calm and quiet. You can easily touch 200 if your roads allow though highly not recommended for our rather unsafe highways. The 2 litre diesel of BMW is a gem and is the best of both worlds. I have a really heavy right foot and I drive fast, still it manages quite decent fuel efficiency. Every time you drive it it will bring a massive smile to your face. The 3 series drives even better considering its low slung but it touches most bumps so I went for the X1.
Impeccable German build, really nothing to find fault with there.
I guess you might have understood how I absolutely love my car and its really perfect in my opinion. But I will try writing things that I don’t like as well.
