2013 BMW X1

It’s Finally Here!

The BMW X1 has been available in Germany and been successful.  This year the  2013 BMW X1 made its way to the states and just recently, it  landed right here at Peterson BMW of Boise.  The X1 is a magnificent combination of a “car-as-truck-as-SUV-as-wagon-as-city-vehicle category”.  It has been said that the X1 has nearly perfect proportions.   The design of the X1 is solid.  Even though you sit a few inches higher in the X1 than in a BMW sedan you are still able to have a more car-like driving experience.  It doesn’t matter what model of the X1 you are driving, the handling and feel of the vehicle is steady.

 

 Size Matters

Car and Driver best described the 2013 BMW X1 :

 At 6.5 inches shorter, 3.3 inches narrower, and 4.6 inches lower than an X3, the X1 gives up some space. But the front compartment has generous leg- and headroom and plenty of shoulder room for all but outlying adults. The rear seat offers plenty of shoulder and headroom for two adults, but kneeroom is on the tight side, recalling that 2003 3-series. And the combination of the narrow cabin and large driveline tunnel makes the middle position fairly useless.Behind the back seat, you have 25.0 cubic feet of cargo space, nearly 50 percent more than what you get in a current 3-series trunk. And the rear seat folds in sections to progressively increase storage to 56.0 cubic feet. That’s not quite as much as a Honda CR-V can hold, but then the X1 is shorter, narrower, and much lower.Perhaps the best way to view the X1 is as a 1-series five-door hatchback, reconstituted in a shape designed to appeal to Americans. This is obvious pandering, but at least this faux SUV is well packaged, relatively efficient, and good to drive. In fact, it drives much like a BMW car. With base prices ranging from $31,545 for an sDrive28i to $39,345 for an xDrive35i, the X1 likely will find plenty of takers.
