What We Don't

Not as sporty as the outgoing model; front-wheel-drive platform seems uncharacteristic of BMW

What's New in the 2016 BMW X1?

Which X1 is the Best?

The X1 is an impressive subcompact luxury crossover. It's only offered in one trim level, but we'd add at least the Driver Assistance Plus package to get all the best driver-safety aids. Find a BMW X1 for sale

Safety options are abundant, ranging from simple features like a backup camera and parking sensors to modern gadgets like adaptive cruise control, an automated parking system, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning and automatic forward-collision braking.

Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet crash-tested the X1, the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the SUV its coveted Top Safety Pick+ designation after strong scores in all of the firm's crash tests.

2016 BMW X1 vs the competition

2016 Audi Q3 -- Audi's subcompact crossover is handsome, sporty and well-priced, though it's lacking some of the X1's available equipment.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA -- The attractively priced GLA offers a lot of equipment and a potent turbocharged engine. But many shoppers will likely find its design to resemble a station wagon more than an SUV.

2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque -- The sporty Evoque oozes style and presence, which is rare in the compact-crossover class. But its aging design doesn't offer as much equipment as the X1.

Used BMW X3 -- If you like the X1 but want more power, space and performance, consider an X3. Of course, prices are higher, so you'll probably want to consider a used or certified pre-owned model.
