The BMW X1 is the perfect crossover to satisfy your road trip needs and will get you to these Arizona attractions:

Grand Canyon The X1 has a 2.0-liter, incline 4-cylinder engine that has enough horsepower to get you to the Grand Canyon as smoothly as possible so you can enjoy the magnificent views. The Grand Canyon is 434 miles away from the Phoenix BMW, so great fuel efficiency combined with the dynamic engine performance is very important. The X1 gets 34 miles per gallon on the highway and has a 16-gallon tank, so you don’t have to worry about filling up.

London Bridge & Lake Havasu All it takes to see a London Bridge is a road trip! Located in Lake Havasu City, this 1831 bridge was relocated from London, England in the 1960s. Use the onboard navigation system of your X1 to find your ideal route. It uses Real Time Traffic Information to help you avoid accidents and traffic jams. Lake Havasu is a great family vacation spot and the spacious X1 will make for a comfortable drive. It can easily accommodate five adults with power front seats, reclining rear seats and a 25 cubic feet cargo area. Don’t have five people? The rear seats fold all the way down to increase your storage space to 56 cubic feet.

Meteor Crater This crater, located near Winslow, Arizona, is the best preserved meteorite impact site in the world. On your way to the site, listen to your favorite music via Bluetooth audio streaming on your smartphone or MP3 player or plug in your iPod. The BMW X1’s standard eight speaker audio system delivers great sound. Upgrade to the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System, to enjoy high definition surround sound from 11 speakers. After exploring the crater and visitor center, find a place to park, recline your seats and gaze at the stars through the panoramic moonroof (optional).

Sunrise Park Resort In the winter, head up to Arizona’s White Mountains to ski or snowboard at the state’s premier ski resort. The X1 is equipped with heated front seats and a rear defroster to keep you warm and improve visibility. The run-flat, all-season tires, combined with rear wheel drive, ensure a safe trip to the mountain.

Tempe Town Lake Don’t want to go too far from the Valley? Load your X1 with kayaks, a canoe, bikes or any other recreational equipment to enjoy a day on the lake. The standard roof rails make it easy to strap your gear to the top of your vehicle for easy transportation. Now the whole family can drive one car to the lake, saving money and the environment.

One little known service many Arizona BMW dealerships offer is a home delivery option; all a customer has to do is ask!

During the process of purchasing a car from Chapman BMW, any customer can inquire about the home delivery service. If the dealership is nearby, salespeople should jump at the chance to offer it since it usually ensures a car will be sold. Often there is no delivery fee, unless it is being taken a long distance.

The process of home delivery is pretty simple too. A salesperson will drive the new car to the customer’s location and bring the sales documents to sign as well. This saves hours at the dealership and allows the deal to be made in the comfort of the consumers own house. When the salesperson arrives be sure to verify that the car is the year, make and model that was requested. Also, double check that all requested equipment and accessories are in place. Do a walk around to examine the exterior and interior for scratches and dings that may have been made during shipment. Finally check the odometer to make sure that the miles match the delivery distance.  After the deal is done and the documents are signed the salesperson will than get a ride back from another person at the dealership.

The total time for an in-home car delivery is about 20 minutes. If a Phoenix BMW customer chooses to take delivery at a dealership, just the delivery portion of the process can easily be three hours or more. Home delivery can be used even if the car is being financed or traded. Home delivery helps consumers make any purchase as easy as possible, with little extra costs.
