Review

The BMW X1 is good to drive, classy inside and hugely practical. It isn't as quiet or comfortable as the best family SUVs, but it's a fine buy if you fancy something a little more sporty.

get the best price

This luxury focussed trim gets the following over SE: 18in bi-colour wheels, perforated leather seats, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, heated front seats and matt silver highlights on the outside. It's a bit too pricey to recommend, though.

Essentially the same engine you'll find in a Mini Cooper and it delivers adequate, if not especially quick, acceleration. Our pick of the range.
