Compare BMW X1 vs BMW X3 (1:1)

Slotting in between the BMW 3 Series Touring and the BMW X3, some may be confused by the looks of the BMW X1 4Г—4. It’s not really developed to tackle off-road obstacles in the same way as a Land Rover Freelander, but it does provide the raised seats position and picture of an SUV. And, while it’s not as hunkered down as a saloon, large wheels do give it a sporting stance.

due to its extra height there’s good headroom in the front and back of the BMW X1. Only tall passengers will find the back legroom restrictive. The boot is a useful 420 litres in size, only 60 litres less than the larger BMW X3. Fold the back seatings and 1350, litres becomes available.

Being slightly narrower than a 3 Series, we found the BMW X1 simple to manoeuvre around town, where its extra ground clearance gives peace of mind when negotiating speed bumps and curbs.

All BMW X1s are provided in SE specification and come fitted with a single Cd-player, two-zone conditioning, split-folding back bench, front foglights, 17-inch alloy wheels, central locking and a trip computer. A ВЈ510 convenience suite adds improved dashboard lighting, Park Distance Control (PDC), automatic wipers and headlights and auto-dimming mirror. For ВЈ1705, the layout suite brings Oyster Nevada leather dashboard, wood trim, front armrest, dark headlining and front sports seatings.

An automatic gearbox costs ВЈ1400, and sat-nav is available from ВЈ1430,.

The 2012 BMW X3 is a fine (if pricey) choice for drivers seeking sport sedan dynamics in a crossover SUV. BMW X3 SUV offers the following pros: Potent turbocharged engine; luxury cabin; crisp handling; convenient back bench. BMW X3 SUV drawbacks are: Abrupt performance delivery; priced higher than many rivals.

The 2012 BMW X3 is a five-passenger compact luxury crossover SUV available in two versions that correspond to the engine: the Xdrive28i and the Xdrive35i.

Traditional features on the 28i include 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, automatic wipers, eight-way performance front seatings, a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped helm, leatherette luxury vinyl upholstery, automatic conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, BMW’s Idrive controls interface and a 12-speaker audio system with a CD player, HD radio, an optional stereo slot and a Usb/ipod interface.

The 35i is alike but has 18-inch alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, a panoramic sunroof and wood dashboard accents.

Features are largely grouped into packages, but several of the items are available separately. The Sport Activity suite contains original look trim, 18-inch (28i) or 19-inch (35i) wheels, roof rails, sport front seatings, a sport helm and a sport mode-equipped transmission with paddle shifters (35i). The M Sport suite is alike but has various wheel styles, blacked-out look trim and chrome exhaust outlets.

The Luxury suite for the 28i contains power-folding/auto-dimming mirrors, the panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, front bench performance lumbar support, add-on lighting and more cargo features (including nets and tie-down hooks). The Luxury suite for the 35i adds keyless ignition/entry, a performance tailgate and back window sunshades.

The Technology suite provides a rearview camera with top view, front and back parking sensors, Bluetooth streaming stereo, a navigation system (with voice commands and real-time traffic) and BMW Assist emergency communications (with collision notification and improved roadside assistance).

The Dynamic Handling suite contains adaptive suspension dampers, variable-ratio steering and three driver-selectable drive modes. The Comfort suite contains the adaptive xenon headlights, keyless ignition/entry, a performance tailgate and back window sunshades. The Cold Weather suite adds heated front seatings and helm along with a 40/20/40-split back bench. The Cold Weather suite II contains heated back seatings and headlight washers.

There is also a Luxury audio suite that features 16 speakers and digital audio processing.
