Has anybody yet had chance to drive the xDrive version of the new X1?
 
I am considering an xDrive 20d SE as a replacement for my current Land Rover Freelander Td4 HSE. I don't do any serious off-roading, and although I am now on my fourth Land Rover I was considering changing for something other than a 4x4 ... until the terrible winter we have just had. I live in an extremely hilly area, where most two-wheel drive cars slither to a halt at the first sign of snow.
 
The only people who have told me that the X1 performs well in heavy snow have been BMW salesmen. I would like some firmer evidence before taking any decision to part with the Freelander, which serves me admirably but is getting a bit long in the tooth now.
 
Another reason for a possible change is that the X1 is 28cm lower than the Freelander, and should therefore fit in an ordinary size garage with an up-and-over door, which the Freelander won't.
 
I've booked a test drive for April 22nd at Malton BMW.

Well, I didn't go for an X1 when I last changed my everyday car in 2011, but I've taken the plunge now and will be taking delivery of this xDrive 20d xLine on 1st September. Build date was 21st July, and it arrived at Cooper Malton BMW on 8th August. It is still in its factory wrapping, awaiting PDI and prep.
