    2013 BMW X1 xDrive 35i 0-60 MPH Drive and Review

    The 2013 BMW X1 is the least expensive new BMW that you can purchase in the United States.

    Of course, that’s the rear-wheel drive 4 cylinder version of the small crossover.

    The 2013 BMW X1 xDrive 35i that has the the 300 HP engine and comes with all-wheel-drive is a bit more expensive as we found out when we took the BMW X1 for a drive and review.

    And what TFLcar video review would be complete without a mile high 0-60 MPH test?

    So, how good and how fast is the newest and smallest BMW Crossover?

    Check out this fun and informative review to find out.

    Editor’s note: It took about a week, but I finally figured out the BMW X1. At first, I thought it was a baby X3, but it’s not. Later I assumed that, given its relationship to the 3-Series, it was a smaller 3-Series wagon – which it is not. I was confounded and wanted to give up on the BMW X1 as it had no logical reason for existence; especially in its priciest as tested form.

    Then I took it for a weekend jaunt to the mountains and it all became clear.

    The 2013 BMW X1 is a BMW 1-Series wagon – simple!

    1. Well, maybe you can get a Volvo XC 60 for the money, but then it is just a Volvo not a BMW. The perfection of a BMW inline six cylinder a Volvo will never match. Besides to that visual the BMW is the better car as well. People who buy this car like to have a versitile car with off road optic. How many owners of SUVs are really driving the car at off road conditions? 5% ? 10 %?

    2. I absolutely love this car – I travel up the mountain to Lake Arrowhead in winter & summer and this car is perfect for both. The handling is unbelievable and fun !! The cars looks are beautiful, in my opion nothing compares especially for the price and service warranty. Alot of car for the money!!
