2013 BMW X1 Summary

With its ready responses, precise steering, solid chassis, firm suspension, and willing engine, the BMW X1 delivers an enjoyable driving experience, diluted only slightly from the 1 Series sedan by size, mass, and compromised tires. Its proportions and low roofline give it a more athletic look than most crossovers, and its high quality interior appointments are commensurate with its pricing. The X1's option packages, while tempting, are expensive, true of all BMWs. This is not a new vehicle; the X1 has been on sale in Europe for almost three years. But it's new to the U.S. market, and a welcome addition.

Tony Swan filed this report after his test drive of the BMW X1 xDrive 28i near Detroit.
