BMX X1 SUV is an affordable option in luxury segment
Pros : Good looks, low price for a luxurious car, BMW brand
Cons : Could have been a bit large in size
I am a car fanatic and I completely love BMW cars. Currently studying engineering from Mumbai, I am a Mumbaite. My father looks after our family business and I will be joining him after completing my graduation. I am looking for a car for myself that I will drive to work on the first day of my office. Therefore I am looking for a classy car, the kind of expectations I have from my car, and I have to have a SUV.
A hatchback or a sedan does not fit the bill in my case. I have booked a test drive for myself for BMW X1 as I want to finalize the car soon. A couple of options are there but I am keen to buy X1 as I have heard and read a lot about it. It definitely looks amazing on road. The new version of the SUV broke covers last month in February, by going through its brochure online I have gathered some information about the SUV. Diesel engine would be my preference; the 2.0 litre diesel engine is capable to produce a maximum power of 186 PS and 380 Nm of torque. The eight speed Steptronic automatic transmission enables to drive the car effortlessly, that is what I got to know from one of my friends whose uncle owns it.
There are various luxury features inside the SUV that make it worthy enough to spend this much amount from one’s pocket. Price is also not that high it is affordable and that is one reason behind its popularity. It is often seen running on road. I was also looking for a comparison between BMW X1 and Audi Q3 as they are tough competitors. However, I am clear in my mind that BMW X1 would most probably be a part of my driveway, but few of my friends have also advised for Audi Q3. I would like to know whether I should consider Audi Q3 before booking BMW X1. Seeking your help, please advise.
