Decent video.

The X1 looks way better inside and out, and it sounds better engineered. It needs to only be offered with xDrive otherwise it is not an X anything. FWD is shear crap! And an xDrive with FWD biased AWD, not sure why that is.

It's funny how different the C&D and Auto Express reviews read.

C&D: "It's taller. Boo!"
Auto Express: "It's taller. Yay!"

The US market will only get the xDrive version.

Unlikely, unless you're talking about the Mini Countryman.

Thumbs up

I look forward in possibly getting the FWD version of this as a gift to the parents.

While the Q3 is a good car, the X1 wins as the better package, no doubt, according to the reviewer.
