My BMW X 1which is the 2 LITER DIESEL , 2 WHEEL DRIVE 2018 MODEL recently returned 58 .8 mpg going north to south traveling 285 miles against the prevailing wind.
On the return journey with the prevailing wind behind me travelling south to north again covering 285 miles my BMW XI returned 61.2 mpg.
I must add that I set my cruise control to 73mph and did not go any faster and did not go much slower.
So I am very pleased with the mpg and and it is a very comfortable and relaxing car to drive.
The other plus for me is the boot space I can slide the back seats forward and get my large electric golf trolley and large bag of golf clubs easily into the boot so no need to put the back seats down flat.BRILLIANT boot space.

Anyone else think it unusual that all these cars are of European Origin? No Nissan Toyota Mazda Honda etc.

Funny thing is quite a few of the Nissan, Toyota and Honda models are made in UK and the last two of those three are always at the top of the reliability charts. It's no wonder Honda are shutting their UK factory next year with the loss of 1000's of jobs. Brits seem to prefer the much less reliable German built Ford, VW and Audi models and the very unreliable Swedish Volvos.
