More utility than the 328 and better steering (hydraulic) if you get an Xdrive.
Gas mileage is the exact same on the new x1 28i and the 328i xdrive.
Leg room really isnt a worry of mine, neither is the trunk capacity, but I'm sure the trunk I could get used to carrying more easily.

I did drive both, however, the issue was that the F30 was a sports model and the X1 was a base one. So I didnt get the right feel inside the car, cheap seats, thin steering wheel, boring dash with the hole missing the GPS.

The X1, suited like I want it, is only coming in December...

That's probably why I'm so confused right now...
