Review

The BMW X1 is good to drive, classy inside and hugely practical. It isn't as quiet or comfortable as the best family SUVs, but it's a fine buy if you fancy something a little more sporty.

get the best price

Most of the additional kit you get over SE trim is purely cosmetic, with 18in alloy wheels, 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.

This plug-in hybrid model makes the most sense for company car drivers, thanks to its tax-friendly CO2 emissions. Charge up the battery and you'll get around 22 miles of pure electric motoring in real-world conditions.
