TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 BMW X1 is heavy on sport and light on utility -- a combination that's likely to please a number of buyers. The 2016 Buick Encore masks its economy-car roots well, but tepid performance keeps its from earning a premium label. The 2016 Mini Counryman retains a fair amount of the Mini character and fun-to-drive spirit, but a growing crop of small crossovers give it more competition than ever.
