TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 BMW X1 is an appealing crossover with hatchback moves, but keep a lid on options for the better value. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is the smallest and least expensive SUV in its lineup, and a welcome entry to the brand. The 2021 Volvo XC40 is a high-personality compact crossover with plenty of features for the money.
