The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW X1 has plenty of style and enthusiasm, although it's a little short on some of the versatility and utility you might expect. The 2014 Buick Encore is one of very few subcompact premium crossovers, and it mostly does well in that role--but it could use more power.
