The 2018 BMW X1
This premium SUV embodies what it means to be a BMW vehicle. The all-new 2018 X1’s unique design combines the power of BMW’s performance-based vehicles with the space and luxury of a full-sized SUV. It features a cargo hold that maximizes its interior space and additional cargo space underneath the trunk floor when it’s still not enough. Under the hood, its TwinPower Turbo Engine delivers an impressive 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft worth of torque. Not only can you go from 0 to 100km/h in just 6.3 seconds but you still save fuel consumption at the same time. The X1’s ConnectedDrive technology keeps you in touch with your smartphone with BMW Assist Emergency Call, concierge services, remote services, and more. It’s just the kind of luxury you could ever expect from a BMW, now in a full-sized vehicle.
The 2018 Lexus NX 300
The 2018 Lexus NX 300 features an all-wheel drive with drive mode select and a dynamic torque control system. With a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, the NX offers SUV design and comfort with sports car-like performance. It incorporates seamless modern technology with its keyless door, LED headlights, and 8-inch touchscreen display with Lexus Enform to connect you to your music and smartphone. In addition, the Lexus Safety System+ with pre-collision safety and pedestrian detection keeps you and your passengers safe inside the RX 300
The BMW Advantage
Among the competition, the BMW X1 has the upper-hand when it comes to the full-sized SUV class. First, while it does have the same amount of passenger seating as the RX 300, the X1 has a higher passenger volume. This means you and your passengers have more space between one another for a more comfortable and less crowded ride. The gross vehicle weight on the BMW X1 is also lighter than the RX 300, which makes a huge impact when it comes to the fuel economy of the vehicle—the heavier the vehicle, the more power it needs to push it forward. Speaking of fuel economy, it’s clear who the winner is in this category. The X1 consumes less fuel than the RX 300 in the city, on the highway, and altogether. All of these advantages, and the BMW X1 costs less.
So there you have it. The 2018 BMW X1 offers the best features for full-sized SUVs, and then some. Come visit Edmonton BMW today during our business hours, or book a test drive with us ahead of time. Either way, we look forward to seeing you at our showroom!
