2014 BMW X1 vs. Its Competition

2014 BMW X1
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

There isn't all that much in the X1's size and price available in the U.S.--yet.

Its closest rival is probably the Range Rover Evoque, a model that's far more expensive and definitely aims further off paved roads; the Evoque is a little more overtly stylish, too, as opposed to the X1's familial style.

The Evoque is also offered in three-door and five-door body styles.

The Mini Countryman is a cousin, but doesn't share the same platform as the X1.

It's roughly the same size, but has more interior room and quirky styling.

The Ford Escape may not have the BMW roundel, but for the same price it has far more features, the same performance and excellent handling.

Really, you can load an Escape to the 9s for the same money.

Quick Specs
The 2014 BMW X1 has plenty of style and enthusiasm, although it's a little short on some of the versatility and utility you might expect.
The 2014 Buick Encore is one of very few subcompact premium crossovers, and it mostly does well in that role--but it could use more power.
With authentically athletic looks and performance balancing out good passenger space, cargo versatility, and loads of high-tech features, the 2014 Ford Escape is attractive to a wide range of buyers.
The 2014 Range Rover Evoque may not be as burly as its bigger brand-mates, but it's every bit as sophisticated and stylish.
The 2014 MINI Countryman puts the brand's fun-to-drive spirit into the body of a versatile compact crossover.
