Some premium family SUVs are more comfortable and better to drive, but you won’t find any that are more spacious inside than the BMW X1. Your choice of engine will depend on whether you prioritise performance or fuel economy, unless you're shopping for a company car, in which case the PHEVs make most sense.

M Sport trim gets you all the equipment that comes on xLine, but adds 19in alloys as well as the Technology Pack, which bring wireless phone-charging and high-beam assist for the headlights. You also get sportier styling.

The 215bhp petrol xDrive23i is pretty brisk, but unlike the plug-in hybrids, you have to rev it hard to extract its performance. We timed one at our private test track accelerating from 0-60mph in 6.7 seconds.
