Looking for a compact luxury SUV with sporty handling? The BMW X1 expands the German marque’s range of 4x4s down to a city-friendly size; it’s shorter than a 3 Series saloon. There are hundreds of BMW X1s for sale on Parkers now - though a used BMW X1 can be very different, depending on which generation you look at. Introduced in 2009, the original model is rear-wheel drive on sDrive models, making it a lively and economical crossover quite unlike the Audi Q3 or Mercedes-Benz GLA you might consider instead. All models are remarkably economical, too, with low emissions and company-car friendly costs that make them ideal used buys as long as they’ve been maintained well. There’s room for five adults, though if the front passengers are tall it can feel a little cramped in the rear. Looking for more space? The 2015-on second generation X1 moved to a front-wheel drive platform shared with the MINI Countryman and 2-Series Active Tourer – xDrive all-wheel drive is, of course, available. Ideal for keen drivers looking for a more practical, rugged-looking family car.
