2012 BMW X1
Customer Car Review by: Susan Holtby | March 15th, 2012
Tried many small SUV's and by far the BMW X1 out performs them all. Basic package includes features that are options on most other SUV's . Road handling, comfort, visibility, safety and power all in a small package can't be beat. Put that together with plenty of space with hatch back and fold down back seats. The 8 speed automatic makes this vehicle sporty and fun to drive. The aesthetics are great too - funky design and colour options. Only complaint - and this goes to the auto industry in North America - where's the manual transmission option? This is a near perfect vehicle but what would make it absolutely perfect is a diesel 6 speed manual transmission option like they have in Germany, Britain, and Australia.....just saying!
