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.
