2020 BMW X1 vs. Its Competition

2020 BMW X1
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The 2.0-liter turbo-4 populates the engine bays of most of these small crossovers, and returns plenty of pluck and efficiency across the board.

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class hatchback matches the handling of the X1 but lacks the standard features and spaciousness.

The Audi Q3 presents better technology and safety than the other German tall hatches, but it blends into the crowded class.

A departure from the typical-looking small crossover is the Volvo XC40 and its sleek interior.

New to the game in 2019, the Lexus UX is small but spacious and comes as a hybrid.

Also relatively new, the costlier Jaguar E-Pace puts forth good handling at the expense of efficiency.
