I find it surprisingly good. Only times it sometimes gets it wrong is when on/off slip roads, or when it hasn't seen a sign and assumes the limit. But coupling that with Waze means you can always cross-reference if in doubt.

I barely look at my instrument panel anymore. It's fantastic

So that, to me, is an unfortunate price hike if/when I decide to update my car. As a golfer (of sorts - mostly out of sorts!) the sliding bench is invaluable when trying to get golf bag, electric trolley and personal kit into the luggage compartment. It's one of those seemingly minor things that just makes you think at decision time for a new car.

How do you find getting everything in with the sliding bench? I'm currently on an Audi A4 looking to go back to BMW and the X1 is my preferred choice but as an avid golfer the boot size is my first priority (sad I know). Going to nip down tot he showroom this weekend to have a look for myself but was hoping for someone with real life experience to advise! Thanks

Hi there.
I have a Motocaddy M1 Pro trolley, which folds down very well. I find, with the sliding rear seat that I only need to move the rear, drivers side (UK) seat forward one notch. I can get my golf bag in first, slightly diagonally, then I put in my driver and umbrella, which I do have to take out of the bag. Next is the trolley, which has the front wheel resting on the bag, and there's room for a hold-all in which I keep a shoes/change of clothes etc. I did have a couple of A4 Avants in the past and the X1 is at least comparable luggage wise because the A4 luggage area was shallower, although a decent length. So hope that helps. I may be able to post a photo, if it helps. Happy golfing - my local course is quite heavy going after recent rains and too many leaves coming down, despite valiant efforts of the green keeping staff. There are two of us with recent X1s and another member has ordered one as a swap for his 2 Series Active Tourer.

Thanks for the info, very useful. Can you get the bag in diagonally with the driver in if you slide it all the way forward?

Same, small, cramped, without legs support, non luxury seats...

Screw that BMW. The previous generation was way better in terms of interior and seats. (Not to mention the sedan like seating position...)

It's definitely not small and cramped. Especially compared to the previous generation, its more spacious in any way.
And if you are buying an SUV for a sedan-like seating position, than there is something wrong with you as a customer, not the car itself.

Compared to most of the cars we have in the little old Uk, the X1 is almost cavernous.

I have both in my garage. My personal E84 X1 and my work F48 X1. The E84 rules over the new one in so many aspects, including seats and materials. It was a 3 Series in disguise. Just look at that sunroof cloth over sun reflective screen before, the material they use on that headliner versus the past, the lack of under C-Pillar (door entry) cushion, length of seat bottom and so on... The seats in the E84 are larger and offer a good leg support on long trips; not the case on the F48. I know them very very well. Did I mention that the E84 had over 20 more HP ?

Since you have both, would it be possible for you to do a side by side photo comparison on the pointers above? It would help us understand better

I agree, but then again if I wanted a 3-series, I would buy a 3-series, not an X1.
