2013 BMW X1

2013 BMW X1: The xDrive35i's 300-hp, 300-lb-ft engine makes it a beast in a straight line, accelerating the 3901-pound crossover to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. The quarter-mile comes in 14.1 seconds at 96 mph. The xDrive28i, which packs the same 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque as the 328i, feels decently quick, and that feeling was confirmed in testing, where the four-banger crossover recorded a 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds and quarter-mile time of 14.9 seconds at 91.2 mph.

Though the brakes felt solid in normal use, their performance in testing wasn't as impressive. The lighter xDrive28i required 134 feet to come to a stop from 60 mph, while the xDrive35i needed 126 feet. A 3839-pound 2013 Acura RDX we recently tested needed a good deal less room to stop, at 117 feet. Given that the X1 drives so much like a car, it's no surprise that handling is sharp. The xDrive28i completed our figure-eight test in 27.1 seconds at an average 0.65 g, while the xDrive35i posted a 26.7-second result at an average 0.69 g.
