Introduction

What Car? says...

Not all trendsetters get it right first time and the BMW X1 is a perfect example. Although the latest model has many talents, the original was actually bit of a letdown – despite the fact that it helped to popularise compact posh SUVs.

This second-generation model isn't only good to drive and remarkably practical, it's also available in plug-in hybrid (xDrive 25e) form with seriously low CO2 emissions and a claimed pure electric range of up to 31 miles. There are, of course, plenty of regular petrol and diesel engines to choose from as well. You can even have four-wheel drive.
