BMW's new X1 has its work cut out for it--establishing a bigger presence among compact luxury crossover SUVs, while some very good rivals have met with more success.
The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque wins on style and off-road prowess, but isn't as practical.
The 2016 Audi Q3 might have superior interior materials, but can't match the X1's performance.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA Class has a lower base price and offers stiff competition for the X1, especially in AMG tune.
The 2016 Volvo XC60 is a strong alternative, although perhaps not quite as sporty, and much larger.
Finally, the 2016 Acura RDX doesn't have the BMW's cachet, but offers more features for the money.
