I test drove the 2012 X1 and I finally bought the F20. There is a ton of features missing the the old X1. In the end of 2012 I test drove the 2013 X1 and I bought my alpine white without any doubts. Now my wife drives the F20 and I drive the X1...the facelift has almost everything you want. Check it out, drive both and make your choice. Sometimes there is no "better than" car, it's just about driving experiences.
