The BMW X1 gives you all you’d want from an SUV: Excellent performance with a sizable, comfortable interior. This is a luxurious sport vehicle that boasts a slick design in a small frame without skimping out on its internals. Its small stature offers quick acceleration and power throughout the streets. BMW Connected Drive makes sure you’re always linked to your vehicle with location services, emergency calls and remote connectivity. For an SUV that delivers BMW luxury with terrific performance and utility, the BMW X1 is a one-of-a-kind vehicle.
Lexus RX 350
From the Lexus RX 350 comes a heavy dose of power paired with a large frame. It delivers all the premium features you’d expect from an SUV of this level. The exterior design is striking with its chiseled shell that showcases several sharp lines that are unmissable on the road. A Heads-Up display keeps you connected with all the Lexus RX 350 has to offer, straight at your fingertips. The Lexus RX 350 is a large-scale SUV that will get the job done from a performance standpoint, but suffers as a utility vehicle that doesn’t present as much interior roominess as its exterior might suggest.
The BMW Advantage
The first thing you’ll notice is the huge price disparity with around a $15,000 difference between the two similar SUVs. While both vehicles pride themselves as utility vehicles that are great for commuting and family shuttling. The BMW X1 provides more roomy interior space, even inside of its slighter frame. The cargo space inside the X1 provides 59 cubic feet of storage, while the larger RX 350 only has 56 cubic feet. That means that while smaller and seemingly less fit for larger amounts of storage, the X1 is able to stay slight and provide more space. It’s not just the interior that the X1 beats the RX 350 with, it also punches out to a faster speed. Again, enjoy the slight frame of the X1 as it bests the RX 350’s 0-100 km speed by over one second. The X1 gets the job done in 6.5 seconds, while the RX 350 takes 7.8 seconds. Whichever advantage is more applicable to your daily life, you can be sure the BMW X1 will give you all you need.
