It is x28i not s28 so the steering feel should be better. I think the writer already have the concept that the new BMW steering = bad; and didn't realize the fact that the x1 use the good old system. Of course the eco tires doesn't help too.
Motortrend also have a poor brake number (keep in mind however motor trend use 60-0 while c&d use 70-0) so it is BMW problem, but is it really so so so poor like they wrote?
