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: Sport

Most of the additional kit you get over SE trim is purely cosmetic, with black 18in alloy wheels, black accents, front sports seats and some contrast stitching on the dash. We’d stick to SE trim and spend the money on some useful options, instead.

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.
