The Car Connection's Take

8.8
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 Volvo XC60 remains a luxury-SUV contender, though a plethora of powertrains and options can take the $36,000 base price well over $50,000.
