Regenerative brakes improve the X1’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The SRX doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the X1 s/xDrive28i’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The SRX doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The X1’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 50 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the SRX’s standard 65 series tires. The X1’s optional 225/35R19 front and 255/30R19 rear tires have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile than the SRX’s optional 55 series tires.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the X1 can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The SRX doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

The X1 has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The SRX’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The X1’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (49.4% to 50.6%) than the SRX’s (57% to 43%). This gives the X1 more stable handling and braking.

The X1 xDrive28i xDrive handles at .82 G’s, while the SRX 4 pulls only .80 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the X1’s turning circle is 1.6 feet tighter than the SRX’s (38.7 feet vs. 40.3 feet).

For greater off-road capability the X1 has a greater minimum ground clearance than the SRX (7.6 vs. 7 inches), allowing the X1 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The BMW X1 may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 550 to 750 pounds less than the Cadillac SRX.

The X1 is 1 foot, 1.8 inches shorter than the SRX, making the X1 easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.
