Review

The BMW X1 is good to drive, classy inside and hugely practical. It isn't as quiet nor as comfortable as the best family SUVs, but it's a fine buy if you fancy something a little more sporty.

Trim: SE

Just because SE is the entry-level trim doesn’t mean it’s sparsely equipped; you get 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, 40/20/40 split folding rear seats, cruise control, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, auto lights and wipers and keyless start. We’d recommend adding a couple of options such as lumbar support and the sliding rear seats, though.

Engine: xDrive 20d

If you want a diesel, the less powerful 18d makes more financial sense. Mind you, the 20d offers a noticeable step up in performance and you get an automatic gearbox as standard.
