Spent a lot of time researching smaller sporty high end SUV. Never owned a BMW before. Coming from an Acura RDX. The X1 is excellent. Drives like a sports car especially in Sport mode. Perfect size. Somehow Smaller than competition on outside but much bigger on the inside. Surprising how much room on the inside. Car is comfortable well appointed. Was headed for a bad collision and had to slam on break and jerk the wheel hard right then left. The X1 held steady with no skid or even a lean. Amazing. Shopped around and got the car with a lot of upgrades for under 39k. I have 5k miles and averaging about 28mpg as I use eco drive for long drives on highway.

Plus - peppy, agile, good interior space for this class of vehicle. 70" width makes for easy parking. Negative - Expensive - Some safety features only in top trim. Not the best MPG considering it needs premium gas. BMW long term reliability means you should lease v buy, but lease deals are fairly aggressive.

Safety concerns

Just picked up my BMW X1 which has the M sport package. Although the detail inside looks very nice, my vehicle has a highly reflective chrome panel on the dashboard. During daytime and especially during sunny days this chrome strip is reflected on both side mirrors which makes it difficult to see anything other than this strip in the side mirror. Only way to see through the drivers side mirror is to put my hand against the side window to block out the reflection from this strip. I really feel this is utterly bad design which is a fairly serious safety concern.

The performance is not as good as Honda lx.

It is just BMW name and faster acceleration, but not a good control.
