What about 60-0 braking distance and crash tests between the 2?

MT posted 134ft 60-0 for x28i(3700+lb) versus 106ft for 320i(3300+lb?). IIHS rated both as "marginal" on small overlap crash test. I do see X1 as a hatchback that merges previous and current generation technologies(e.g. not-as-stiff old chassis and latest ZF 8AT and N20), and the price points reflect that.

It kind of sucks neither 320i nor X1 carries N26 though.

These are not huge differences but the sDrive28i should be faster as it's lighter. The xDrive28i weighs about 3700 pounds.
Quicker, maybe. Faster? Not.

My 320i has a topspeed of 146 mph, with the summer performance tires. I like to think it would feel more secure on our track as well, vs an SAV. It's nice that the X1 is available with the sport or M-sport package but it's still got a slushbox and a crucial missing third pedal.

i don't think this is even a comparison. i've seen a few 320i + sport packs on the street already amazingly. and i've sat in an X1 (which i do admit had a really cool orange color )

a base X1 with no i drive, first off feels cheaper inside. the plastics are worse and you can tell its last gen. plus theres less seat room / leg room etc.

not to mention you are driving a fake higher riding SUV which i'm guessing doesnt help center of gravity. yeah the N20 in it is tuned to "28" levels, but its not everything. the X1 sdrive28i is cheaper base price, but i'd the 320i sport pack ($1300) is much less than m-sports ($3000) on the X1 sdrive 28i (stupidly you dont get a sport suspension on the sport line, only the m-sport!) . and well i dont think i could buy a BMW without a sport suspension so it kind of changes things.

I know that this thread is old, but I'd like to chime in.

I like the following:
Xenons
Nav
Rear Camera/sensors
Heated seats

For $38,000, the 320i and X1 will both offer the above options. However, here are the additional features that the X1 offers at this price:
xDrive
240HP
Hydraulic Steering
Heated Steering Wheel

So, w/ a $38,000 X1 you get a faster car, with all-wheel drive, and more precise steering. Sounds like the enthusiast's choice to me...
PS-ahhhh, heated steering wheel...yum

Wait a minute! The X1 is old and small--and not MT! xDrive means no M Sport suspension. What wimp needs a heated steering wheel, for Christ's sake? YOUR hands are heated! Do you live in Siberia?

At least for this month BMWNA is pricing the 328i similar to the 320i($2000 option credit instead of $500), dependent on selected options, the $2k price delta on the 60HP and 55lb-ft and extra hardware plus OEM warranty may only cost $500(or less), if so it a much better deal than a $400 piggyback box. For sure the F30 is a better deal this month than X1(which has zero option credit).

F30 has comfort/sport mode, X1 doesn't. I am finding the X1 ride a bit rough, most likely due to new RFT Eagle tires.
I enjoyed the heated steering wheel in the past week. It does drive more like a car than SUV like (X3).
