However if you live in places that have snow or like going on dirt roads, the x1 with x drive is certainly well worth a thought - particularly the safety benefits. Certainly appreciated the difference awd makes when i used to live in missouri in winter.
The other thing that swayed me towards a sedan is i know my driving style would appreciate the lower centre of gravity and handling benefits of the 328i... Plus i am living in a warm climate and dont need awd
Mileage is the exact same between the X1 28i and the 328i Xdrive.
Same engine as well...
Still on the fence guys, keep the comments coming please...
X3 is a no go! So no use talking about it.
I live in Montreal and winters can get pretty nasty, got stuck a few times each winter with my e90 (non Xdrive)...
Watch it be a snowless winter if I decide to go X1 ! LOOOL
