Yet it is the ease of driving this compact SUV that leaves the deepest impression." - Kelley Blue Book (KBB)

"What makes the 10-Best winning BMW X1 so good? It's quick, nimble, spacious, well built, and undeniably upscale. The darling turbocharged inline-four-cylinder engine revs eagerly, and the X1's ride is comfortable without sacrificing inspired handling." - Car and Driver
