We offer 10 BMW X1 competitors to consider because someone might want to be different, and they may not desire a premium small crossover that’s one of the most fun drives in its class. Or perhaps they just want to see what’s out there instead of heading straight for the BMW dealership (smart move).
However, before going into the alternatives, we should get a brief picture of what the X1 crossover/SUV offers. The 2018 model starts at $34,895. A 228-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter/4-cylinder engine drives the front wheels or, for an extra $2,000, all four. Cargo space is 27.1 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 58.7 when they’re down. OK, now let’s explore.
