Prices, Specs and Rivals

Starting at £26,660 for an entry-level two-wheel-drive sDrive18d SE, rising to £28160 for the xDrive variant the X1 is relatively affordable within in its class.

Those wanting the quickest X1 in the range will need to look towards the xDrive 25d M Sport 5dr Step Auto at £35,810, while the petrol xDrive20i costs from £32510.

Rivals range from the Mercedes GLA, to the Audi Q1 and Q2. Both are solid choices in the premium crossover market, although if you want anything remotely exciting to drive, you’ll need to stump up for a more expensive Porsche Macan. At the cheaper end of the spectrum there is Seat’s new Ateca, Ford’s Kuga Vignalle and the recently revised VW Tiguan. Kia’s new Sportage should also be considered if value for money is a big consideration.
