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.

get the best price

This luxury focussed trim gets the following over SE: 18in bi-colour wheels, perforated leather seats, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, heated front seats and matt silver highlights on the outside. It's a bit too pricey to recommend, though.

We haven't tried the plug-in hybrid xDrive25e yet but, on paper, it's surprisingly nippy and can be driven on electric power alone for up to 31 miles, according to the official WLTP tests.
