Aaaaaand the deliberation begins again!
If you are considering a vehicle that size test out a Volvo XC60 R Design. Yup I did say Volvo, I recently drove one and was impressed with the power delivery and fit and finish. A relative bargain too as compared to a similarly equipped similar hp 35i X3. The seats are really excellent too, nice two tone leather and seriously comfortable (the headrests are great, ill hazard better seats then most BMWs) Between the seats, interior and good grunt I kept going back to considering it but that class SUV really is a lot bigger and bulkier then the more lithe X1, and I'm not quite ready to give up the nimble fun factor. Can wait a few years until the rug rat is bigger and forces my hand
