A premium SUV that is easy to manage and without the guilt of one. That'll be the BMW X1.

What we like:
pros
It's a BMW
pros
taut body control
pros
spacious cabin
pros
smooth gearbox
pros
should be economical to run
What we dislike:
cons
Engine a tad gutless
cons
lacks road presence due to its compact size
cons
firm ride
cons
hefty steering even at parking speeds


Even though, the sDrive18i is a low spec model, it is equipped with standard kit like 17-inch wheels, Park Distance Control, cruise control, Xenon headlamps, factory fitted stereo with an Aux input, electrically adjustable front seats, a multi-function steering wheel, a Panorama glass roof and so on.

The X1 will win many fans among premium SUV buyers despite its average performance. Doubters will say that it lacks the high set, commanding driving position and the sheer road presence of a premium SUV but consider it as a practical and spacious Golf-sized premium hatchback with a slightly raised ride height and a somewhat rugged character and the X1 will certainly start to make much more sense.

The quote for my car was fast, responsive and the highest. The transaction was fast and explanation was clear. The person who inspected my car was friendly and professional. It was a good experience with OneShift.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
