Something strange happened recently during the week we had the new X1 sDrive 28i. We sort of (unexpectedly) fell in love with it. The X1 was suppose to be a known quantity: yet another iteration on the cross-over. On paper its exactly something that should excite us. However with a good weight to power ratio, decent utility and surprising price, it maybe the hidden gem of the BMW line-up.

So instead of doing the usual written review I decided to simply hop in the X1 and explain why it maybe the surprise hit of the current BMW line-up.
