Quick Specs
7.6
The 2015 BMW X1 runs a little short on versatility, but it's big on style and enthusiasm.
7.4
The 2015 Buick Encore could use a little power, but it's otherwise a mostly solid entry into a very small segment.
8.0
With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise.
8.2
The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque tones down the off-road chops of its older siblings and turns up the design, creating a stylish carlike utility in the process.
8.0
The mildly updated 2015 MINI Countryman is a versatile compact crossover, one of the smallest on the market, that maintains MINI's character and fun-to-drive spirit.
