Crossover vehicles are incredibly family-friendly vehicles, providing a combination of peppy engine and generous cargo space for all those necessaries we tend to carry around with us, be it for the daily commute to work, or a weekend getaway. The great staff at BMW of Peabody knows how important options like these are to most modern families and we have a number of models available on our lot to show off, including the 2015 BMW X1 xDrive281 SAV AWD model.

BMW xDrive281

Pep definitely defines the 281 model. The All Wheel Drive model comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Power is delivered to the wheels via a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.

Like many smaller crossover vehicles, the xDrive281 is known for its fuel economy. The model comes with a “stop-start” system that turns the engine when the vehicle is stopped in order to conserve fuel. The model gets about  23 MPG in the city and an impressive 34 MPG on the highway, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

When you’re driving a family around, whether you have a newer family, or one that’s established, you’ll definitely want to consider safety standards. The 2015 BMW x1 xDrive281 SAV AWD model comes standard with stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes (with automatic brake drying), front side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, active front-seat head restraints and hill descent control, according the vehicle specs.

If the crossover 2015 BMW x1 xDrive281 SAV AWD sounds like a vehicle for yourself or your family, come visit BMW of Peabody and talk to our staff about the car. Don’t forget to schedule a test drive so you can enjoy the model’s handling and comfort.
