Overall, "better bang for the buck". The X1 also has less cargo space than competing Crossovers and on paper, similar EPA fuel consumption numbers.
Not to be self promoting, but:

They don't want a manual gearbox, they don't care for sport suspension, they just want a transportation appliance.
That's why enthusiasts drive BMW's ....
