My wife loves the 1 series but no AWD on it, tried X3, nope, too big.
Tried the new Range Rover Evoque, cute but X1 beats him hands down in everything including handling. Audi, we both don't like.
Bought X1 because she likes the lenght, it's AWD, it's cute and has a beautiful interior. Matched with a full options and we have a dream car.
Now, I can barely drive it, she is nuts about it.
We have a 28i, plenty of power for this car, is fast and good in gas.
Both love the car too much. It is just perfect!
