What's the point of ordering an X1 (or any CUV/SAV/SUV, for that matter) with rear drive? If you're going to see lots of bad weather, order it with XDrive. Rear drive in bad weather is just asking for trouble. If you don't want AWD, then you're better off just buying a FWD...something like a mini cooper, golf or any regular hatchback and save some money (and gas in the process).
