X1 vs 328xi questions???

Hi i am looking at a X1 and a 328 as far as i
Can tell sitting in both cars they look
Identical inside same front leg room hip room
And same rear seat. Is it just me or are they
Really the same i cant find dimension stats anywhere.
To me it looks like the X1 is just a lifted 328 am i right.

This article may help you a bit:

You'll find that the X1 is easier to get in and out of, is roomier up front, and offers a slightly higher seating position. It may not handle as well as a 3 wagon, but it is still a drivers car for sure.

The F30 has better available features and the leather seats are a bit nicer (even the non-sport have good bolstering and support). It could be worth the wait for the F31.

I am in same boat. I am planning to lease either a 2013 X1 28i or 328iXdrive.

The 3-series lease deals are on the high end of my budget. I like X1 and from the specs it has same engine as 3-series w/ 8-spd auto.

Anyone here has leased X1? If you don;t mind can you PM me the lease details.

This is my 1st lease of my life and I own a E90 CPO. So very cautious as it will be a commitment for 3 years.

Thanks!!
