A year on from its generational update, and the 2017 BMW X1 is still finding new fans. It’s not just because this is the kind of utility that sinks its claws into your heart and holds on. In fact, drivers may find its road grip and performance potential are right up there with its class-leading cargo volume and comforts.

The BMW badge certainly doesn’t hurt either, we wager. But in addition to Autotrader’s five reasons above, Car and Driver also had plenty of praise. Among them is its class-topping 59 cu-ft of seats down cargo volume, and the excellent performance on tap from its 228 horsepower engine, rigid chassis, and steering. In testing it, no other compact luxury utility could match the X1’s corner-carving abilities, and few could match its acceleration. Among the other highlights is the latest iDrive 6.0, standard hands-free tailgate, and reclining rear seat.

But stand out features are just part of this new BMW’s overall value. To find out what it’s really about, contact our Visalia, CA dealership and schedule an appointment to get behind the wheel. You’ll figure out quickly what Ultimate Driving Machine really means.
