The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.5
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 Lexus NX is an expressively styled and comfortable compact luxury crossover, but its mix of features faces significant new competitors this year.
