Three Things That Make the BMW X1 the Best Crossover Around

BMW X

With the elevated driving position and high ground clearance of an SUV, but the ease of use and maneuverability of a smaller car, the crossover breed of vehicle is all the rage these days.

But, when you want a crossover that also has a distinct level of quality and luxury, you want the BMW X1 we have here at BMW of Escondido.

The four-door, five passenger BMW X1 is a sporty-looking, fun model, loaded with tons of the innovative amenities and safety features drivers want. We think very highly of it around here, but, we know it’s not the only luxury-brand crossover available to you.

When you compare our BMW X1 to the Mercedes-Benz GLA, however, you’ll see – the X1 may not be your only choice, but, it is your best choice.

Here are three ways we’ve discovered that prove the BMW X1 measures above the Mercedes-Benz GLA:

  1. Cargo space. The BMW X1 gives drivers a lot more room for their gear than the Mercedes-Benz GLA. In fact, while the BMW model holds more than 27 cubic feet of cargo, the Mercedes-Benz holds fewer than 15 cubic feet of cargo.
  2. Engine response and power. The base model BMW X1 is equipped with a 228-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz GLA base model, is equipped with a 2.0-liter four cylinder that doesn’t offer up quite as much power, with a rating of only 208 horsepower.
  3. Passenger space. Overall, our BMW X1 measures both taller and longer than the Mercedes-Benz. What this means for you and your passengers is more room. There’s more headroom and shoulder room, as well as a lot more legroom.

To see all the ways we think the BMW X1 is the superior crossover, and to add a few of your own, stop by BMW of Escondido soon and try one out for yourself. We have a nice selection on hand in our new vehicle collection and we look forward to helping you find the BMW X1 you’ve been searching for.
