Love the X1. It is my wife's car. Technology is overwhelming. She got the X Line package.

Having the motor stop and start by itself takes a bit getting used to, but you can shut that feature off if you don't like it.

Overall - so far - great car.

Only 400 miles on it - not really taken it on a trip - but about 25 right now, using it as a grocery cart. Judging on what I've seen, I'd expect over 30 highway.

Now the Prius gets 50 easy - anytime - anywhere. In fact the 2007 Prius is actually bigger than the E46.
