Alternatives

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.

The Mercedes GLA looks good and has an eye-catching interior. It is also well equipped for the money. But its ride and handling are disappointing and its diesel engines are noisy.
