We got invited by BMW to test the new version of the X1 and after they made clear that they are insured very well we took off with the 230 hp vehicle to explore Munich and the villages around. We took on a route that was designed especially to test the car in every facet. One thing is for sure. Driving fast never came easier because you don’t even notice when you go 60 mph or more. Whether you are a good driver or not this car will accompany you well.
One of the features that popped out immediately is the heads-up display. Feeling like in a spaceship your display gets projected onto your windscreen. This is not only very futuristic it also helps you to keep your eyes on the street. And there is more. Going backwards was never easier than with the built-in camera that navigates you. We could drop a lot more technical details. But other than that we think the overall feeling is way more important. And this car convinced us from the very beginning.
