What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW X1 estate?
The Range Rover Evoque is a more stylish choice, thanks to its 'floating roof' design and high waistline. It is rather pricey on the used car market, though, due to it being a highly demanded vehicle with plenty of standard equipment. It doesn’t have the X1’s efficient engines. and it won’t drive as well, either.
The Audi Q3 has a more compliant ride and, remarkably, is cheaper to buy. It is a much older design, though, and some of the interior layout and controls betray its age. It is also not as practical inside as the BMW.
