Introduction

What Car? says...

This new BMW X1 is the latest version of a family SUV that has undergone quite a transformation.

In its first-generation, the X1 was more of a rugged, jacked-up estate car powered by a few diesel engines. With this new third-generation model, though, BMW has aimed to turn it into a fully-fledged posh and polished SUV with an electrified engine line-up.

So does the new BMW X1 deliver on its posh and practical promise? Or are you better off with a different premium family SUV, such as the Audi Q3, Range Rover Evoque or Volvo XC40? Well, we've driven it, and over the next few pages of this review we'll tell you everything you need to know about its performance in all the important areas.

Once you've picked the model for you, we can also help you find the best price if you search our free What Car? New Car Deals pages. They have lots of new family SUV deals.
