I bought the X1 after considering a lot of other options - C250, A4, 320d. It really is an outstanding car! Look and Style Fantastic to look at especially the Deep Sea Blue as it adds character to the aggressive looking car. Definitely a head turner. Comfort Up there with the best. PErhaps not in the same league as a Merc back seat ... but who cares about comfort when you are driving the Ultimate Driving Machine. The cabin space is very good and if you are not over 6 feet tall, there is a lot of leg room at the back and front. Lacks the cubby holes that you find in a Skoda. Seats are a bit on the firmer side. The boot is big with the seats upright and can swallow a nano when they are folded. The ride quality is very good and the high ground clearance inspires a lot of confidence while driving. Head and shoulders above the merc whcih scraped every speed breaker on the road. Pickup Ecstatic !! It just pulls like a locomotive from zero and just keeps on accelerating. HArd to drive this car with a restrained right foot. Best Features Fantastic looks, unbeatable performance, and not to mention the handling especially high speed manners. I also like the utility of the vehicle as it has loads of space at the back. The dash is simple and elegant and easy to use. All the advanced features are tucked away unlike a merc which has 150 buttons and lights on the console. Of course the build quality is exceptional. Needs to improve Provide more options for the price. There is no cruise control, no front PDC, rear camera and many other features that even lower end cars. My Skoda Laura perhaps had more options than this. So the premium one has to pay for the propeller badge is enormous. Overall Experience Simply love it. Nothing comes close. Everything just seems perfect.
