TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW X1 is a compelling crossover pick for a budget BMW buyer who can’t do without a roundel. The 2018 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options. The 2018 Mini Countryman has a new plug-in hybrid system but the mission is the same: Big Mini crossover with a bigger audience.
