Even without the optional M Sport suspension, the X1 rides and handles really well.

EPA fuel ratings are near the top of the class: 22 miles per gallon in the city, 31 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined with all-wheel drive.

Unfortunately, blind-spot monitoring is not available on the X1, and adaptive cruise control costs another $1,000.
