Viewed from the rear, the X1 begins to look a bit more like the crossover that it's claimed to be. However, in the flesh the vehicle's size and ride height had everyone who passed by calling it a wagon.
Under the hood of the 2013 X1 xDrive28i, you'll find a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that is force-fed air via a twin-scroll turbocharger. Output is estimated at 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
Our X1 was equipped with the M Sport package that upgrades the suspension, wheels, tires, and traction system. The resulting steering offers the perfect blend of weightiness, feedback, and responsiveness.
In addition to radio stations, the preset buttons can be used to store contacts for hands-free calling, playlists for listening, or shortcuts to parts of the infotainment interface. Here, the last preset is linked to destinations for navigation.
