The BMW X1 competes against other small luxury crossovers that prioritize style over substance in most cases.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA Class has a tighter back seat than the BMW X1, but is available in a performance model that’s wildly fun.
The Audi Q3 is the relative geezer in the bunch; it’s overdue for a rethink and doesn’t match up well with the X1.
The Lexus NX is available in a pricey hybrid version, although we’re not as sold on its looks.
The Lincoln MKC is available with a potent turbo-4 and all-wheel drive, but can be hugely expensive in top versions.
The Range Rover Evoque is the stylish pick of the bunch, especially in two-door form if you can find one.
