The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW X1 runs a little short on versatility, but it's big on style and enthusiasm. With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise.
