"It's going to make a lot of people happy."

That's what we like to hear, especially when it comes to the groundbreaking new 2016 BMW X1 in Charlotte. With 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque from an intuitively turbocharged four-cylinder, impressive fuel economy, a flexible interior, and a seriously well-connected cabin, the X1 Sports Activity Vehicle really is--as they say--the total package.

And it's not just us that think it. Critics and fans from across the country have sprung from the woodwork to sing its praises ever since its official launch back in July.

TorqueNews claims that "the BMW X1 sets the world on fire", and quotes US News to say that this stunning new compact luxury crossover offers the "best long-term value without compromising on an outstanding ownership experience". Other critics confirm that it is a top performer among  subcompact crossovers, both economy and luxury. And with a stellar sales month in January, it seems as though its momentum will happily continue into the spring.

Not sure if this fiery new small luxury SUV will be right for you?
